Well, after 3 weeks of inaction we finally got a day[Sunday] in. Initially an overnighter, but the 35/40 knots Saturday discouraged that, so we got away early Sunday.
Quite reasonable conditions too. We stopped at the Pinns, where there was a strong SW current running.
Initially we got a good mix of fish, including an 85/90cm kingfish, but things slowed to a stop as it steadily picked up through the morning. Mayor seemed a reasonable alternative, and there was nowhere near the current. Fishing was steady, but predominately pink mao mao and red snapper, conditions unsettled enough to put the rest off.
The wind picked up as predicted, more 30+kn NW, but comfortable enough when it's a following sea. So, overall, not bad.
Daylight Saving: Please note that tide times have been corrected for daylight saving.
