A bit nastier weather last week forced us to can our Thursday trip, but it came right in time toget a 24hour trip on Friday /Saturday.
A good trip it too, with a total of 7 kingfish caught, between 10 and 20 kg. The bottom fishing was also productive with a good mix of species, snapper, golden snapper tarakihi, maomao, and a few porae. A couple of barracuda and a mako weren’t quite so welcome but kept the interest up.
We were keen to get the Sunday in as well, but torrential rain at the Marina before we left and a rain radar forecast showing rain all day persuaded me to pull the pin.
That bit us, it stopped raining about 8.30 and was lovely and calm all day.
When the Metservice get it wrong, there’s no half measures…….
