Well, September is starting off looking like spring, which is nice. August finished much as it started, a mixture of some good and a fair bit notso.
The fish have'nt moved into the shallower anywhere near as early as last year, and though the fishing's a bit slower deep than it was, it's still better and more consistent than in close.
We had a midweek trip in the 60/80m, with tallies mainly around the 12/15 mark, still a mixture of snapper and tarakihi, so a bit slower On Saturday we started close because of an ominous forecast 25/30kn SE, but headed deeper when it didn't eventuate. There was a lot of SE current, which made for a very slow day, but outside Motiti was still a lot more productive than the Middle Ground.
There was more sign in the middle than previously, but well off the bottom and not in feed mode.
