We started the week with a group of students from Tauranga Boys on Monday, an enthusiastic group and we had a good days fishing, with tarakihi, snapper and even a legal kingy. All caught around the Okaparus on just 2 marks.

So naturally we went back to them on Wednesday. Back to reality. Next to nothing on the same marks, and everywhere we went was more of the same, really tough.

The  good part was at least there was more sign around, it was just 10-20m off the bottom and not feeding.

Friday was similar, only this time it was outside Motiti, similar story, sign but not much fish.

Saturday, out to the Pinnacles, same again, recalcitrant fish. We came back in to 60m and did pick up enough to save the day.

The wind picked up on our way back to Mayor, strong WSW, but daybreak Sunday morning it dropped away totally. Felt like the 1st day of summer, the fishing was excellent, as were our group. A great day.
