Very nice to see settled weather over Easter. Still a good mix of fish being caught in the 30/40m areas around Motiti, with snapper, kingfish, often just undersize, and kahawai more prevalent inside the island, and some good catches of golden snapper and tarakihi in the deeper water outside and around the Okaparus.

Some good  schools of kahawai around Astrolabe, but the bottom fishing’s been  quite slow.

We’re still getting some skippies on the lures, quite close in too, so it’s worth getting them in the water early on.

Mayor’s still fishing quite well with good snapper and tarakihi, although the drift fishing’s been slow. It’s always more at the whim of the wind and currents though, so nothing new.

    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
