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.

  • 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
