We finally got an overnighter in Wednesday/Thursday. A bit wet on the way out, but it had settled quite well by the morning.

The bottom fishing went well, with 4 nice kingies, up to 20+ kg caught , and a good selection of snapper, tarakihi, trevally and the like as well.

We also had a heap of bait fish around the boat during the night, with a lot of juvenile gemfish, up to about 40cm being caught. Not something we’ve seen too often.

The drift fishing was a disappointment though, with only a couple of small gemfish  hooked. The conditions were ok, but the baits were consistently untouched.

The bottom fishing on Sunday was good though,  mainly tarakihi and red snapper, some snapper and  a lot nicer day than Saturday was.
