Are they being weighed at Toots might pop to get a pic if I know the time.
If I'm not taking photos I'm fishing. If I'm not fishing I'm taking photos, either way I'm having fun.

I just finished 4 days fishing around the bret and nine pin trench.
 
We managed to weigh a fish at pihia 114kg and one at toot's 93kg.
 
But the real story is all the fish we lost!!!
 
We had 17 strikes in 4 days!! mostly stripeys but 2 were sail fish and a big blue on the trench.
 
A fantastic 4 days and very happy with the two marlin but hopefully next time the rest stickWink
 
I think my crew need some trainingLOL
 
most of the strikes were on zuker BP

Well done James and Levante -you guys definitely made the most of that good water and area yesterday. 

We on the other hand spent a bit too much time South in last two days and only got up to Home Point and Brett area in middle of day and missed two hot morning bites.   Going to Kumera patch for a quick look yestaday morning before heading up the coast was certainly not our smartest move.  Nevermind we got to listen  on radio to pack attacks happening to Levante on way up. 
Live and learn I suppose.... really helps to get where fish are and spend as much time in area as possible.   At least the boat went well and we didn't break anything.

TM.... cyclones are not necessarily good things, in 1988 there were ****e loads of marlin down off Toots especially in and around the Hen & Chicks, Cyclone Bola came along and that was basically the end of the season.
