The weather is now on the improve, which is good to see, but the fishing over the last few days has slowed up a bit. We've been trying a variety of different areas and both of the main species, tarakihi and snapper, are around, but not very hungry.

There's been areas of discoloured water, quite black looking and I think it is likely caused by phytoplankton or similar, which they do eat, along with krill. Quite often shows up around now, and is as likely to be the reason as not. We tend to forget that not everything they eat is near the bottom and certainly we've been seeing a lot of fish sign midwater with no obvious tide or current to explain it. So, we'll see what eventuates.






Daylight Saving:
