Mayor producing big snapper and tarakihi in great condition
2 May 2014

The continuing good weather and warm temperatures meant another busy week, generally working the Okaparus and Motiti areas, with a good selection of species coming up.  The deeper water is still more productive for us, it seems the fish are either right in, or well out, with not a lot in the middle.

Mayor continues to fish very well,  with both big snapper and tarakihi in great condition.

We’re still getting bluenose and gemfish drift fishing, a bit slower than the reef fishing, but ok.

The game fishers are still getting the odd marlin hookup, not too surprising, the water temp. on Sunday was the highest we’ve seen all summer, rising to 22* in the afternoon. Previously it’d been around 20.4 for most of the year.

We’ve also caught many more kingies on lures and bottom fishing than normal, possibly also because of the continuing warm conditions, but long may it continue.
