Plenty of fishing this week, but the fluctuating weather patterns continue to make for tricky fishing.

Currents have no pattern at all, so good areas 1 day are dead the next. We're still getting a good variety, just inconsistent. A lot more snapper around now, at Mayor also, but feeding times are short, so moving frequently is necessary to keep things ticking over.

The deep water drifting is similar, 1 drift we pulled up a heap of gemfish, next drift with exactly the same everything, we got none.

So it's a matter of making no assumptions and when you see sign on the sounder, giving it a go regardless of where you were catching last time out.
