It took a few days for the swell to settle after the cyclone had slid down the east coast, but we got out on Friday and found that the snapper had moved in.
We had good catches around the western side of Motiti, nice sized fish too, with a few trevally, kahawai and tarakihi as well.
An evening fish on the way to Mayor also provided some nice snapper up to 6kg, until sundown, no moon meant nothing much after dark.
The next day around Mayor was also good, steady fishing with snapper and tarakihi despite a lot of current running.
Sunday was beautiful, no current, perfect conditions, but a slower day everywhere on the snapper, and we couldn’t find tarakihi at all.
Normally the deeper water is consistent now but not at the moment . Fickle fish.
