Plenty of good weather and fishing trips away last week. The fishing continues to be okay, but challenging enough that the more experienced fishers definitely have an advantage.

Generally the mornings have been more productive, with things tending to taper off in the afternoon.

Still not a lot of snapper showing up, although the ones we've caught have been good sized pannies, the tarakihi have been more consistent.

We did a bit of trolling Saturday, picked up some good skippies and a few kahawai as well around the Astrolabe, no kingies apart from 1 undersize though.

There's been a few gamefish hooked and landed though, so a reasonable start to the season.

Opinion Poll

Should the Christmas/New Year school holidays be moved to February when the weather is typically better in NZ?

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
