For the first time - we managed more then one marlin in a day.
Fishing the best of the west Ahipara Torny myself my bro from oz and a last years angler winner Greg got into some fish.
A secret location on the west coast was found and worked.  First a free jumper.  Second a fish swiping the teaser then attacking a lure with out hook up, next pass made a mockery of what I thought was possible.  A marlin on the teaser eating it right to the boat, passed the back of the boat and it wouldn't let go!  Then it faded to the short corner then boom!  fish on.  Boom another bite 2 fish on jumping hard, one in front and one behind the boat.   A double with my bro!  whaaat!

Later just before stop fishing boom another for Greg.  The boys were hungry so beaut tasting fish in the boot, unfortunately missed weight by 3kg.  


Ill let the pictures speak

Bonze lures
Light gauge
what a day.
