Another monster bass today...this time for Houhora club member Bevan Cates. The huge bass weighed in at 70.8 kg (156.08 lbs) and is the heaviest to date this season for a club member. Congratulations Bevan and the team.

Another long day at the office.  

Bit rougher yesterday out at the garden patch, nice 10knots SW until the afternoon and it really cut up.  
Some nice water blue but not purple and 22 was the warmest temp for the day.
One fish large enough to be a marlin or a large Tuna had a go when I was first setting lures but didnt get enough of a view to get 100 per ID.

Zero bait
Zero skippies

one boat looked to be hooked up and was doing tight circles all over the outer sea mounts

that is all.

Great day out the other day.  Prospecting swords.  Was the 5min to go call and our tap tap tap bite came.  After some gentle teasing the fish we were on.  Long powerful runs and one very angry Makaira ensued.  2.5 hours later and we I.D the fish as a prehistoric size thresher - problem was it was caught in the pec fin so another 30 mins to move it the last 10m before breaking off.  

Yes we were gutted it wasn't the sword we were after but it was a super hard and fun battle on new gear, lines and techniques.

On the gear we were using a new Makaira 50 Open frame spooled with new Daiwa 100lb hollow on a "a bit light" 24kg livefibre bent butt.  All I can say is wow.
