A perfect forecast gave the green light to the RAA Rotoiti day trip and 16 anglers in six boats set forth to do battle with Lake Rotoiti’s famed trout. We meet at Gisborne point, wished each other luck and arranged to meet at Puketapu point for lunch.
At lunchtime it was obvious that some had more success than others. Tactics, flies and locations were all discussed to help improve the catch rate.
In the afternoon most of us headed for the spot that gave Chris and Jenny all their fish in the morning and most of us caught fish as a result. (Thanks Chris and Jenny for that).
We finished at Gisborne point late afternoon to discuss the day and weigh fish for the club records.
Manuels 3.12kg was fish of the month and Jenny nearly caught her first limit.
A big thank you to everyone for making this a successful day out, especially the skippers who provided boats.
Below are some of the images captured on this day
