A few more sunny days and a good days fishing outside Motiti eased the winter blues a little. The areas we'd been working previously produced a few tarakihi then eased off, so after a couple of moves we tried a bit further East.

The current, which had been quite stiff, dropped an hour or two after the tide change, and as it did, we started getting quite a lot of snapper, along with good quantities of tarakihi. The tarakihi are well into spawning now, and they tend to be fussier with their feeding once it's over, still there, but not as motivated if conditions aren't to their liking.

Theoretically they should be moving into shallower water now, but we've seen no evidence of it, so we'll stay deep until things change.






Daylight Saving:
