The good fishing is continuing after the wet weather interruptions with the tarakihi going well, as they do at this time of year as the females are feeding harder prior to spawning. We're still doing well in the deeper water, with some good snapper catches as well, although they tend to be more hit and miss depending on conditions.

Conditions on Sunday meant we worked more around the Astrolabe and Brewis shoals, where the strong current forced us into the shallower water. Still a good day with quite a selection of species coming up including pink and grey maomao, porae, trevally, tarakihi, kingfish, more snapper than we normally see, and the usual small reef fish.

Quite an interesting day.
