It’s always good to see the new month start off with good weather, and so far July’s been mint
We got an overnighter away with the Romai FC, 3rd time lucky and had a good evening fish for an hour or two.
A lot of nice snapper, up to 3 kg , and a few tarakihi when the snapper slowed down. A good night’s sleep at Mayor and bright and early back into it.
There was enough S.E. current to make getting on the mark tricky at first, but once positioned we had good steady fishing. A lot more tarakihi, with a good mix of snapper, pink maomao, red snapper, and the odd porae and trevally as well.
We had a group decision to do a few Hapuku drifts, but the current was too severe in the deeper water and we got skunked except for a sea perch and a lonely tarakihi.
Sunday was a perfect day, weather and fishingwise , so we ended up home a bit early. A few near misses with just undersize kingfish,but nobody was too concerned, the tarakihi eased the pain.
