Still fairly static as far as the bottom fishing goes, with no evidence of anything much in the shallow water yet, apart from some very small snapper that is. We did pull some large tarakihi from an area East of the Okaparus in around 40m, but not enough to spend too long there, so the deeper water is still the best bet at the moment.

Working around Brewis shoals was more of the same, with some small snapper and not much else, although we struck a school of red snapper that went quite hard while they were around, so that bumped the tallies up nicely. Talking to a friend on Sunday, and he was saying that the water temp out wide is over 16 degrees so with the predominating easterlies bringing in the warmer water we might see a bit more action in shallow soon.
