Plenty of fishing, less catching. The fish are there in numbers, but strong currents are slowing their feeding down. Shallow and deeper it's a similar pattern.

The Hapuku drifts have been a different story, last week's was ok, and Saturday's was even better, with a lot of bluenose and some gemfish also caught. And a beautiful totally calm day.

Sunday was a toughy, went to Town Pt, then outside Motiti, then West from there, hard everywhere. From hero back to zero. This isn't a game for sissies.
