Snapper (Pink)
Summary

An interesting week. We tried around Motiti midweek and did well, with mainly tarakihi.
Friday night/Saturday we overnighted at Mayor, had steady fishing and a good variety of species, including snapper, tarakihi,  maomao, and trevally.
It was a windy trip home, but pretty much on the nose, so comfortable enough.
Sunday, a good forecast so we headed back to Motiti only for the weather to change completely for the worse, forcing us to the Eastern side where it was calm, but not much fish, a few snapper and a couple of tarakihi.
Things eased a bit so we worked the middle ground which was pretty much a non event, a couple of big blue cod and snapper. An excellent crew enjoyed the day regardless, but a tough one.
Monday we headed out to Mayor, the predicted rain didn’t show as Coromandel stopped most of it. We did get some on the way home, but the fishing was good despite a lot of current so a big improvement on the Sunday.
