Trip Summary

The weather is starting to swing around after a week of North Easterlies. Had a Kingfish trip on today and whilst it started slow after the bad weather we have been getting of late, the Kingfish started to bite for a while. We landed the first keeper and then got a couple of rat (smaller) Kingfish which where promptly returned back. We then moved to another spot where they where a good size. Over all the team had 4 good keepers, that was more than enough for a feed, and we threw back another 5 or so. We have a Snapper trip on tomorrow and space is available at this stage but filling fast. While the weather has been bad as stated, its starting to fine up and we have been managing to get a nice variety from Snapper, Trevelly and Terakihi and sometimes the odd Kingfish has jumped on with our Snapper trips. Kingfish are not targeted on the Snapper trips as Kingfish are a totally different set up and trip. Blue Sea Charters
