Was ridiculously hard!!! I fished saturday and sunday and today -or rather drove boat around aimlessly in a seemingly empty ocean.  Other half got grumpy because we didn't get a strike or win the trip to Vanuatu in contest -possibly the  skipper's faultOuch.  I saw 1 dolphin and one school of frightened saury in 3 days.  I went south, I went north, I went wide ,I went close.   Closest we got was when Cara J hooked a nice 108kg stripe just ahead of us yesterday morning, and today a boat got a double not far from us.  Only consolation was lots of other boats seemed to suffer same fate.  As John Going said to me last night  -"the fish seemed to be no where in particular".
 
The other John on Westcoaster found a stray one yesterday wide of ocean beach - and Julie his wife landed the stripee round 90kg - but John is a great fisherman -so may be when he says "you have to be lucky" he's only partly right. 
 
Also met Greg1 from Whangerei -who got a small spearfish yesterday.  He recognised my boat name of this Site -which was pretty cool - as was his boat.  Always great atmoshpere at Tuts and we got a free concert last night with some classic NZ music from Dave Dobyn, Bik Runga and Tim Finn. 
Oh well -that is how it goes - still keen to get out there again and must be saved up some luck in last 3 days and at least weather was quite good -which is always nice when your spending most of it on a 5 meter stabi.

Saw you out there Shaneg. I was in the maroon tinnie with the white hard top. Hard going as you say. Had a marlin pinched from out under our nose by someone else, but then thats fishin I suppose. We at least managed a few albies, but that was not what we were after. Had quite a few waves over the bow on Saturday, but calmed down on Sunday and a lot better today. Unfortunately had to cut today short due to an oil warning on the engine? Level was still half full so not quite sure as to why I got it. Rather be safe than sorry.
Enjoyed the freebe show as well. Sat with a beer in the hand over a barbie listening to it from across the bay.
Have boat - must fish!

Oh well Tinky, lets hope we both have better luck next time. We probably should have run a few smaller lures for albies -at least would have got a feed.  Didn't even rig a bungy.
Maybe see ya out there soon.  Will be doing one base and small boats.

Myself and fellow fishing.netter JLN hit the water at Tutukaka at 06:00 this morning and pulled out at 18:00 hrs this evening. Absolutely pristine conditions today. We shot out to 80m mark inside the Pinacles near where JLN and his crew of fair maidens caught their marlin on Saturday cruised out to the 140 meter mark picking up albies and skippies as we went come across a big work up of ganetts dolphins everywhere but no stickfaces swung left and headed for the Kumera patch just before we got there Viper hooked up and landed a marlin approximately  500 meters away from us other boats had fish in the gear in the vicinity while they played it also Voi had fish in the gear at the Kumera Patch and Vicky Wright on her dads boat Tuturangi tagged a Blue Marlin estimated at 150kgs at about 225M behind the Pinacles . All in all a very enjoyable day but fish few and far between.

hey at least you guys are out on the water giving it a crack. We have had a couple of weeks off after quite a few hard worked days at the end of january. And i wont lie, i was very worried this weekend as i headed to the sevens in wellington that the marlin would start to fire this weekend as they did last year at this exact time. But i guess their a bit later then. Will be up there again over the next few weeks. Cant wait. Surely they will start to come in more numbers soon??? well lets hope so.
 
And i guess i cant complain as the sevens was one hell of a weekend!!
 
But bring on the marlin..

Greg, it would have been an awesome day out there today. Impressive news on the blue, good to see one finally caught/tagged. I think we saw Tuturangi heading out through pinacles yesterday morning.

I was South end again all day yesterday (home at 21:15). Less bait about than on Sunday, weather was purrrrrrrrrrfict. Fish still not there. 1x Mahimahi 7.5kg was a first for me so I'm a happy chappy. Bloody cool watching the school of at least 5 greyhounding from Port into the lures and trying to get them all. Little buggers have no fare and think they can eat Zuka's etc. The one that stuck was on a Pakula Blue Angel. Fawl hooked in the skull. Great sport for their size and I believe top eating! 
Was this a female?

Definitely female. The males look like they've swum into a brick wall and have a flat face.
They like MacSkippy lures too as well as a small livie.
