February’s been more unsettled and overcast than normal, but the year to date has been disappointing after a great looking start late December.
Not too bad compared to the rest of the world though, I guess.
Weather kept us in the shallower water for a couple of days last week, and it ‘s still on the slow side, although the snapper are good when you can find them.
Tarakihi have been better in the deeper reefs, partly because the strong currents, normally opposing the wind just to make it even more challenging, have been easing.
What has been the most notable feature this year is that little bits of sign are where we’re catching most fish. Good looking sign has produced the odd fish, but nothing like it should, or normally would. Another little anomaly to keep you guessing.
