Things are picking up with the better weather and work groups end of year bonus trips.
We've been going outside Motiti but after 2 slower days we went out to the Pinns, which was a good move as they were considerably more bitey, and we had a few nice snapper as well.
We had a day bluenose trip on Sunday, and they were going well, with everyone taking home at least 6 or more nice fish. They've been increasing in numbers for the last 2 or 3 seasons and the trend continues. We're also seeing more bass and the odd hapuku around, after them being a bit hard to find for a while, probably due to the improvement in weather patterns.
The weather has been great, and continues to look settled for Christmas, so hopefully the long range forecast is right this time around.
