Monday started with a half day charter with the NZ sevens. A bit of a worry after a tough Sunday. Luckily we ran over a bit of sign on the way out and ended up with a good haul of snapper, trevally and kahawai, even a legal kingy.
Tried it again on Thursday, nothing. We worked around the Astrolabe, Brewis, and the Okaparus but pretty hard everywhere.
Saturday we stopped at a few spots before Motiti, but ended up in the deeper water outside the island and started getting tarakihi. A big improvement on the shallow water.
Sunday, it was straight to the deep, and a good consistent day.
There's still no real pattern to the fishing, very much day to day, it's almost like if you have a good hit one day, go somewhere else the next.
Which is a lot easier said than done.
