Good steady fishing around Motiti
6 March 2018

We got off to a good start to the week on Tuesday with light winds and good steady fishing around Motiti.

The snapper are in good numbers in the 20 to 40m depths with  plenty of nice sized ones  among them. We got onto the tarakihi in the deeper water so a pleasant productive day.

Wednesday’s forecast was identical, but it was a different ocean outside the entrance, with a very unsettled sloppy sea, and no complaints when we canned the trip.

A current from the West with an easterly swell against it was the problem, and just a bit more wind made all the difference.

The Easterly continued  through the rest of the week, effectively killing the weekend, although we fished the harbour on Friday for the Seeka fishing contest.

Not exactly red hot fishing, but we got a few snapper and a reasonable number of kahawai and trevally so not too bad considering.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
