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.
