The Super, Wolf and Blue moons
4 January 2018
0 0

Another variable week as far as the fishing goes. We’ve had some good days and some hard ones, mainly due to the wildly varying sea conditions.

The Super, Wolf and Blue moons,  [so much more impressive sounding than closer than usual] create bigger tides and consequently bigger tidal currents, meaning more turbulence on the bottom and shorter feeding times.

So  we’ve had days where there’s been more fishing than catching, but weather has been settled and most are taking home a reasonable amount.

My preference is still the deeper water, 40m+ is more consistent, with a bit more snapper showing up in the last week or so.

We’ve also started to pick up a few skippies, another good sign for now.
