Tarakihi, snapper and bigger than normal red snapper
28 April 2015
0 0

The fishing in the deeper water is still going well, but it’s been quite slow in the midrange areas, between 20 to 50m.

Midweek outside Motiti we had a good selection of tarakihi, snapper and bigger than normal red snapper [which are require respectful handling, head plates and scales will both slice fingers like razors, towels are recommended].  They’re good eating, and great in the smoker.

Normally, this time of year has some of the best fishing, but the conditions have been unsettled in the last week or two. We’re seeing more of the dreaded wind over current , which always makes things tougher.

Generally the current follows the wind, but when they go out of sync., it reflects in the fishing. It normally doesn’t last for long but frustrating when it does.
