Fishing Reports

Snapper slowing, but nice Tarakihi catches in the deeper water

We had a couple of midweek trips, both with good numbers on board. Good to see that the excellent spell of weather is keeping day trippers keen.

We went outside  Motiti on Wednesday, as the Okaparu and Brewis areas have been slowing down, with less sizable snapper and  more small ones being caught. The deeper water is still going well, with mainly tarakihi, although still a good variety of species coming up. Our biggest problem was the weather was so good, no wind  or current that we kept drifting off the marks, so average catches.

We tried around the Pinns on Friday, an excellent day. We stayed on the marks, caught  plenty of tarakihi and  even a legal kingy.

An overnighter to Mayor saw a continuation of the great weather and fishing, although the Sunday drift fishing was slow with gemfish being the main catch. Delicious eating, even if they do look a bit like barracuda.
