Short bite times and finicky fish
25 November 2015
0 0

We got some bad weather last week after a good November up till then.

A couple of trips early in the week were both quite hard fishing, with short bite times and finicky fish. Conditions were good, they were in bait stealing rather  than feeding mode.

For the weekend we had a demonstration of El Nino in action, with strong West and S.W. winds, too strong for our planned overnighters, so postponements were the only option.

Frustrating, as the last few times we were at Mayor were productive and doing some Hapuku/bluenose  drifts for the first time in a while as well would have been a bonus.

Not to be this time.

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
