Some very cold weather over recent weeks’ has seen the water temps drop and with that the snapper fishing has been hot. All reefs have been fishing well, whether we are in close on a ½ day or out wide on a full day the fish have been chewing. As always the weather is a factor and the calmer days’ have produced some great fish. Along with the snapper there have some big tusk fish and pearl perch as well as moses perch, sweetlip, gold spot wrasse, fusilier, spangled emperor, maori cod and the odd cobia caught. The picture below shows snapper to 6kg.
The next picture shows some of the tusk fish that are getting caught. Up to 3.5kg and 60cm, great for this area. They are as good to eat as they are to look at.
