I have always been a proponent of effort that reeks reward.
And when it comes to Gamefishing I have put some miles with and without smiles over the years.

On reflection finding my fish in this country I feel has been blind luck with countless hours off and on the water effort and relying on a broad base of fishing experience coupled with an intense desire to acquire my own goals.

And because these visiting pelagics are spread over such a big space for such a short window anything to improve the odds of success I have continually embraced.

And one such tool I have welcomed is the value of SSTs.
Yes I'm a fan and yes I have banged on before.
But there is a reason for my madness, just hang on.

Although I have for sometime recognised there value the actual refined use of such a powerful tool has escaped me.
For me I liken it to a treasure map.
I got it for free, however the map was incomplete. It showed me that the treasure was there all I had to do was fill in the space from start to x marks the spot. Someone had the pieces in between.

Now I know I can be a muppet in my own world of enthusiasm to understand tools of tech, which like many can lead one down the wrong paths to spot x.
BUT IVE FINALLY FOUND THE MISSING PIECES.

They are in next weeks installment of ......

No they are in Mangre's first set of tutorials for his SSTs.

They are however locked. And the key is a cost. You have to be a subscriber to his tools.
To be honest. If your prepared to spend the money you already have on the boat, the gear the gas and the brownie points you may just think that this is not a bridge to far.

I wish these keys or map coordinates were there when I first started using this map.

So the gold is in them there hills, you just have to trade more trinkets for the missing puzzle pieces.

Mattoo, I believe you.
But how far do the maps extend? Is it Jaffa land and North, or below East cape?

Oh Alan,

I think the term is, you'd cream yourself.
They do the upper north island both coasts.
And down to a place called gisborne I believe.
Kidding, down below waihau to east cape at least.
The overall cloud free sst shows from Palmerston I believe both coasts up to the Kings.

I agree with your synopsis. We spend endless hrs and $s preparing, scheming, planning and boat time. Anything that shortens the odds is worth it.
How do you sign up?

Mangre loled,

Store that one.

Alan did you check the prices of the SSTs and formulas to use that tool.

Interested to know what you thought.

Yes, checked site out - don't know about the tools.
Crap weather right now - 30 knt southerly, rain. So nothing doing right now. Figured if it was to be any use to me, prob from later this month onward. Was going to log on then.
