Another week of wildly variable weather, with strong winds one day, calm and mild the next.
We called off a Thursday trip due to the bad forecast, which we could have got in, as the Northerly was very late coming, but hit hard when it did front up.
Saturday’s forecast was bad, but we took the punt, and after several hours of strong SW, it eased right off . The fishing was good too, plenty of snapper, tarakihi and a couple of good kingies as well.
Sunday was a perfect day, no swell or wind, lovely conditions. The fishing was slower than Saturday, a noticeable increase in current overnight was the reason for that. It did ease after the tide change though, and things subsequently picked up nicely.
And, we’re still catching skippies, both on the way out and returning to port, always a good perq.
