Unusually, we had three 6-hr trips midweek, so a more limited range of options.
We tried in close, for lots of little snapper, then around the Brewis shoals and Okaparu reef areas where it was quite productive with a good mix of species, predominately snapper, red snapper, maomao a few trevally and even a couple of legal kingies. Very few tarakihi, but they tend to be on the softer bottom, not so much on the reefs.
Some quite good snapper among them too. Good timing, as we've only just started seeing more of them show up in the last couple of weeks.
Stronger winds killed the weekend unfortunately.
