The snapper possibly in closer to the beach
4 March 2015

We had a big N.E. swell pounding in for most of last week, and it hardened up the fishing a bit. It was between 2 and 4 metres and while we didn’t do too badly, it was  back to a lot of shifting to get onto anything much. The snapper we were catching have moved on, possibly in closer to the beach from what we’ve heard, but  we had little luck when we tried there, although sometimes it’s  a case of right time, right place. If so, our timing was bad. So, even though outside Motiti was slower, it was still the best bet.

Tarakihi can be frustrating when you’re sitting over them and they are just not biting, but at least they’re not here one day gone the next like snapper can  be.

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
