Luckily the weather wasn’t quite as dire for Tauranga as predicted. Pretty ugly, but it did pass quickly. There was still a fair NE swell running on Saturday, quite fishable though, and we did well, with good catches and a few limits caught.

We even got four skippies, the most all season. Monday was nicer still, more settled and continuing good catches of tarakihi, trevally and snapper. The beginning of the season didn’t look that promising, and it’s been a bit different, everything seems later, continuing a trend of the last few years, but overall it’s been a good one for us in terms of both fishable days and fish caught. The next couple of months are generally good ones, so it’ll be nice if that trend continues.
