Three excellent days fishing this week. A beautiful calm day at the Pinns, and a good mixture of snapper and tarakihi.

Saturday had more SW so we stayed outside Motiti and had reasonable conditions with mainly tarakihi plus a few trevally and red snapper. We did a quick stop on the way out and got some good snapper, a nice bonus.

Sunday sounded similar weatherwise, but there was a real 3 way slop running, not even a metre, but really uncomfortable. Plus the fishing was too slow and hard to tolerate so We went closer to Motiti. A good call as it was quite comfortable and we got onto more good snapper and a few keener tarakihi. So not too bad in the end.
