Good catches of mainly 33/38 cm snapper

Well, the snapper have shown up in the shallower water inside Motiti and around the Okaparus. We’ve had some good catches of mainly 33/38 cm fish, in good condition, not too surprising given the amount of food in the water.

The only downside is we’ve had some strong currents, and in typical snapper behaviour they’re here one day, gone the next. It’s well worth giving any fish sign, even on flat mud/sand bottom a go, because if they’re on the bite, they’re going hard.

Tarakihi also are better in the deeper water, so a few more options available.

Likewise the game fishing continues to be good, also more skippies being caught, around the Penguins in particular.

So all in all, looking really positive.
