Anyone else going out over the manukau this sunday?

I was looking at the forecast and thinking it looks worth a try, just waiting to hear if I can get crew.

Head out west guys. On Sunday my son Arron was aboard OutWest, a 5.8m Allenco boat with my mate Shane.They had 2 marlin around their boat at 70m. A boat snapper fishing in 50m had a school of mahimahi come and hide under their boat.

This afternoon I took a call from a club member who claimed to have boated a 140kg stripey. I took one look at that fish and said nope it's not 140. After a bit if back and forth I estimated 181kg.

Not even! It went a solid 192.2kg. 108m just north of the Port. Only three of us know the lure and I will only say I have one :)

Before you challenge my call on it being a stripey I have literally seen hundreds of them on the scales. One had me confused. In the dark I thought it may have been a small black. It was a small blue.

Now I will put my hand up and say I have only seen one black and two blues.

The fish tonight was a striped marlin and I told the crew I didn't want to get their hopes up too high but it is the biggest I have seen.

I think I was happier than they were Big smile

Ohhh the Lure? A Pakula something :)

Light gauge hooks? Yupp! all legal? Yupp! Club members? Well the skipper was! I so wish it was a Counties fish but we still have a good month to tke that crown from Mercury Bay.

Well done Garry Box and Craig McKie (angler) onboard Get Over It.

One last thing, on their way out this morning they saw a free jumper at 52m. Thumbs Up

Landed a striped marlin in 90m on Friday on Black And Purple fathom lure off long corner. Light gauge hooks.
Almost at Port Waikato.
Didn’t weigh as we launched at Mangere, but it measured 2.4m and reasonably fat so probably 90-100kg.
Was following change of colour on chlorophyll maps that I get from Ocean SST.
Last time I used the same tactic hooked a blue off Aldermans, so will try this again.
First timer angler and 1st for new boat. None of crew had ever been marlin fishing let alone seen one so was a great day to have them onboard.
Put on a great show - lots of aerial.
Stomach full of fresh piper/saury, and caught mid tide which wasn’t in the bite time. It must have been feeding as we drove over it for stomach contents to be so fresh.
Great day out and smoking it at home today.
