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.
