We were hoping that the week of NE winds and rain would bring the fish and warmer water down, and that seems to have happened. Both the bottom fishing and the Hapuku fishing were excellent last weekend, and it seemed to be pretty general with most areas having good catches.

We had a couple of overnighters around Mayor, with good quantities of snapper showing up in addition to the tarakihi, and bluenose and gemfish in the deeper water. Also saw some schools of skipjack and got a few of them (less one to a mako), big fish too, so hopefully this will continue for some time, a settled autumn would be a bonus for the year.
