Picking up skipjack and albacore tuna regularly
27 January 2016

A bit quieter midweek with most people back to work.

We headed out to the Pinns as the deeper water is  still the most productive, but unfortunately the tarakihi we pulled up were completely overpowered by the barracuda. Some nice fish, but hardly any were making it to the surface before the gear was snipped off.

So, it was out  to Mayor, where we’d been doing pretty well. Alas, it was a bust too, some pink maomao, porae and red snapper were about it. A beautiful day, no wind,  great conditions with a big lazy swell running.

We have been picking up skipjack and albacore tuna regularly though, a bit of a bonus.

We  gave the 70/80m outside Motiti a go on the Saturday, and found it had improved from previously, with tarakihi and red snapper coming up steadily for most of the day, plus a few more skippies on the way out.

    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
