Fish Moving Day to Day
23 October 2013
0 0

Another couple of days out last week, and it was down to town Pt again, on the basis of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it".

The Friday was steady fishing, no bursts of action, ticking along steadily on the tarakihi, although a couple of good john dory that Colin pulled up were a nice bonus.

Saturday was initially slower, and we covered  more ground than Friday, with the previous days marks not really doing it. We  gave one mark a go that had a little sign on it, and after a while they came on strongly, which made the day.

It's surprising just how much the fish move around an area from day to day, and it pays to  keep looking and trying different spots rather than assume that because they weren't there yesterday they won't be today.

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.


    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
