Nice snapper inside Motiti
17 February 2015
0 0

The East and S.E. winds made conditions tough for most of the week. We got Thursday in, tried outside Motiti where we’d been doing ok, but the current was too strong to  contend with in conjunction with a big N.E. swell. A pity, as we got a few even so.

Inside Motiti we got onto some nice snapper, they lasted just long enough to make the day, thankfully, because it was pretty slow after that.

A stag do on Saturday saw another good hit of snapper, a different  spot, but similar result. They bit hard for 30/40 minutes, and that was  it.

A bit of luck there, but I’ll take it.

Sunday the current had eased and the tarakihi were more on the bite, also got a few kingies, 1 legal,  some really big kahawai along with snapper and  red snapper.  And conditions got nicer as  the day progressed. An excellent day.

    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
    Jo Davis
