Just the one overnighter this week. Out to Mayor on Friday evening with a couple of stops on the way for a few snapper, but not very exciting so on to Mayor.
The crew fished well into the night, but still not a lot apart from koreru, smallish porae and a couple more snapper. Des, my fishing machine decky, did however pull up a 15+kg kingy in the early morning, proving once again you have to have a line in the water to catch a fish.
The day continued well, with a good variety of species coming up, not as many snapper as previously though. We then headed deeper for some drift fishing. Did a couple of drifts for one small bluenose and then headed home as the wind started to pick up enough from the N.E. to make it quite uncomfortable.
Enough so that I decided to can the Sunday trip .
