We worked a few different areas last week, with reasonable outcomes on the various trips.
Went to the Pinns on Tuesday and had a good easy day, didn’t have to move much due to shifting currents and wind, and the fish ticked along steadily, mainly tarakihi, with a fair amount of small kingies coming up. In fact, we’ve caught more rat kingies in the last week or two than I’ve seen before. They’re often in the shallow water outside the Mt, but lately they’ve been in the middle ground, the pins, outside and inside Motiti, and all around the 50 to 60cm mark, a bit frustrating because they cause more tangles than the big ones, which mainly fight more straight up and down.
The other trips we worked the middle ground, which was ok, the snapper have showed up in shallower water, so while not red hot, we found enough to keep things interesting.
