A bit better week weatherwise and our first Hapuku trip in a while as well.
And a really nice day in all respects. We got a heap of skippies on the way out, which are always good as bait then got a few nice Hapuku on the first drift, albeit with a decent tangle as well.
Nothing much on the next couple, so we went a bit deeper and got a good selection of bluenose and gemfish on the last few drifts. No wind and an easy trip home to top off the day.
Saturday was another settled day but everything was slower, , less birds and dolphins sighted, only 1 skippy on the lures, did some kingfish jigging but only got some kahawai, finished up ok with the bottom fishing with good tarakihi and a few snapper, which are just starting to show up in better numbers.
