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.

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
