Steady catching

We got a couple of good days out this week. Thankfully the nice spell of weather held until the weekend, and we got both days in. The forecast was for some Westerly on Saturday, then dropping off to light NW on Sunday. The forecast was spot on this week, despite a little low making things a little tricky.

The water colour hadn’t improved much since last week, and the current was still evident, possibly from the small tsunami the day before. Luckily this didn’t impact the fishing, with Saturday producing good numbers of tarakihi, snapper, some nice trevally, and loads of rat kingfish. The last fish of the day was a good 8-9kg legal kingfish, so nice to see a few of the larger ones schooling with the rats.

Sunday was an easier one stopping in at the middle ground, and Brewis shoals producing good numbers of tarakihi, consistently throughout the day. We still had a lot of current, but luckily it didn’t bother the fish, so it was steady catching, on a nice flat ocean all day. Bring on next weekend!

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
