Fished the last 2 days of the Tuts Onebase (Friday Saturday) as the first 2 were unfishable for us. Found the fish off Oceans late Friday. Had a couple on on Saturday but dropped them both and a Big arrrse shark too. Hope to get out again soon just need the weather to play ball.

Nice one Doug. Hard luck.
We remained luckless on marlin yesterday but did manage a few delicious tarakihi and a modest puka.. And we lost what I reckon was a big puka on the way up.
Thanks for nice weekend Simon.
Might get out for fish next week if weather plays ball and try some livebaiting down off oceans.

Threw in an extra 100l of fuel into the lazer while the orginal plan was to just dog leg our way over to the chicks for a regular dive and heard over the radio that marlin were feeding in 78m off oceans once at tara rocks popping kingfish.

Ended up unfortunately or not unfortunately with the first ball of fish (pilchards) getting smoked by a big blue. By the time the boys had the spearguns loaded the action was over and the bait ball was moving too quick(probably for the better admittedly we didnt have them loaded as expected to not see jackrabbit).

Spent the next hour or two messing around just covering ground and hopping in on the bait balls ranging between 85-95m off oceans.

The blokes out there are good buggers and for a first time messing about learnt some good things to increase the odds next time! Hopefully didnt step on anyones toes out there. Most the bait we saw were pilchards.

Just back from up there, was that you guys in the lazer craft diving out on the end of the Chicks. My mate has a Bertram 31 called Buccaneer, saw couple marlin feeding but by time we go there they had gone. Plenty of bait balls around but no fish on a lot of them, had a troll around, got excited when all 4 rods went off but turned out to be kings.

Will be trying to get back out this weekend to try poke a hole in marlin if the forecast is under 15knots again. The bait was definitely there at the moment.

Funny enough the marlin we saw was 500m from where we marked the bait at 9am when we zig-zagged out to the chicks.

Saw you fullas at the chicks - trying for live KY baits Tzer? We were in a green Surtees on the North side .Waved out to you to come across our burley trail as there were heaps in it but I think you may have thought we were waving you off. Tried to get you on ch7 but couldnt get a response.
