Weather was more autumny

The weather was more autumny early in the week, with the coolest southerlies for a while. They weren’t too bad though and we still got a couple of trips in, with a good mix of tarakihi and snapper in addition to the usual undersize kingfish.

We also picked up a few skippies on the way, good to see they’re hanging in there, we’ve picked up more of them in the last couple of weeks than most of the summer.

There was also a pod of orca in the harbour on Saturday, it’s more usual to see them around December/January, so well behind schedule.

The Met Service did themselves proud with multiple forecast changes around Friday for the weekend, ranging from NW to N to W and SW. It blew East in the end, the one direction they didn’t call.

Well, they did once it was actually blowing, more of  a nowcast than a forecast. So that flagged Sunday.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
