More snapper than tarakihi
15 April 2014

We’ve been targeting more snapper than tarakihi lately, weather and conditions have meant that the deeper reefs have not  been as accessible.

Around the Okaparus has been quite consistently good, although Sunday’s Easterly made things a bit bouncy when we headed outside Motiti. We even managed a few tarakihi, which are abundant around  Mayor and the deeper water, but very hard to find under 50m, the Middle Ground being particularly hard.

We had junior anglers from the Te Puke Citizens Club on Saturday, so stayed shallow, working down the coast to Papamoa East. It wasn’t  too bad in close, but a lot  slower when we angled out towards the Knoll and  tried some of the spots a little deeper. Still, a good day for all.
