Settled weather, blue skies, and good fishing!

Some good settled, blue skied week was nice, although windy on Tuesday. We started close, got a few off Omanu, then trickled down to Town Pt, where we got nothing. The wind eased so out to deep water outside Motiti where we got snapper and a few tarakihi, then the wind picked up and time to go.

We had a quiet evening fish on an  overnighter to Mayor, some snapper and tarakihi. The next morning was better, with 2 kingies, plus a good selection of species and a couple of bluenose on the ‘puku drifts.

Sunday we were outside Motiti, a nice settled day and good fishing, quite a few snapper and  good sized tarakihi, red snapper,  a good mix of species generally. Nice to get a few days in again.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
