Good weather and fluctuating fishing meant we covered a few different spots last week. We tried the Pinns on Wednesday and did well on the tarakihi until midday, then it just stopped. Tried for over an hour before heading shallower and lucking onto some good snapper to finish the day.

A short Friday kept us closer to home, but we found good snapper outside the Okaparus. Saturday, a late cancellation meant no fishing, no refund there, a perfect day too. Sunday made up for it though, good fishing and good crew, with a good selection of fish caught. Monday looked like being more of the same, but 30+knots of Southerly, which hadn't been forecast, forced us behind Motiti, where we lucked onto some good snapper, so a good end to what looked pretty dubious at the beginning of the trip.
