A week of Westerlies added unpredictability to the fishing with forecasts changing daily/hourly. So, some calm trips, some sloppy ones, some good catching days and some harder.

There's been the usual odd currents running, and finding tarakihi anywhere between 40/90m makes for interesting days and lots of trial and error. Throw in the weather lottery and it's even more fun.

We're seeing a little bit more snapper showing up, and on an evening trip Saturday, they went off after dark, a limit trip, with a best of 8/9lb. Two newbies, Jack and Devron, caught the most, and a crayfish too. A really good effort from them.
