We got some bad weather last week after a good November up till then. A couple of trips early in the week were both quite hard fishing, with short bite times and finicky fish. Conditions were good, they were in bait stealing rather than feeding mode.

For the weekend we had a demonstration of El Nino in action, with strong West and S.W. winds, too strong for our planned overnighters, so postponements were the only option. Frustrating, as the last few times we were at Mayor were productive and doing some Hapuku/bluenose drifts for the first time in a while as well would have been a bonus. Not to be this time.

Daylight Saving:
