Last week was an interesting one, with the supermoon having quite an effect on the tides and currents.
We worked around Motiti early in the week and while the Tuesday was hard we still had reasonable results but the Thursday was diabolical, outside Motiti was quite unfishable, with swell and current completely opposite each other and the lines were running forward at a 45*angle.
It was more settled inside the island but very little fish, some snapper, tarakihi and more blue cod than usual.
Saturday we headed in the opposite direction, and had a good morning around the Pinns, quietening off after lunch.
Sunday we went there again, but slow and hard fishing so out to Mayor which was a bit better, with red snapper the main catch.
