A bit of a quieter week this time around. We had to cancel the weekend due to weather, the forecast was for a bit of Northerly which did end up showing, so a good call by the Met Service. The fishing in the deeper water has been producing mainly tarakahi and snapper, most of the snapper being around the 32-35cm mark with the odd undersized amongst them, but not enough to consider re-anchoring which can be a problem with shallower fishing. Especially around the middle ground areas between Motiti and the Mount. Had a decent sized mako of about 2-2.5m cruising around the boat just prior to leaving for home the last trip out which made for some good entertainment, without managing to steal any of the customers fish off the lines. A pleasant end to the day, and nice to see a few more sharks around. The purse seiners have been out targeting school fish, and where there is school fish, the sharks generally won’t be too far off. Looking forward to a better one this weekend!
