Back to the one day week last week. We had an overnighter Tuesday/ Wednesday but our evening fish was fairly unimpressive, about 6 snapper was all. It was the dark of the moon though, and we've never caught much at night when it is. Some claim the opposite, but the full moon has always been the best for me.
Possibly the difference is the depth, harbour fishing and shallow water could well be better, but I fish deeper , 50m + most of the time, including when crayfishing in th'80s and the full moon was best.
Anyway, the next morning was slow, and the Hapuku/bass fishing hopeless. No obvious reason, beautiful day and conditions. No apparent current, in fact we drifted in a different direction every drop, so, that was that.
