Made it 25miles behind white today into the 2000m trench, very dead, nice flat calm day, only interupeted by one weed fish. Crap water colour but up to 16.2degrees. Covered 116miles. I hope the boys do better of the cape!!!!!
I own 501 lures, but i can only run 5 at a time. What to do??? Man I have some sleepless nights!!!!

Good on you Andrew for giving it a go. We were on the Mayor Knolls today, dead there, no birdlife or anything, even the fishing was terrible one small bluenose and a gemfish, luckiliy we got some snapper in at Mayor later in the day.

was hard going at Rangitira's on Saturday too. 5 small Bluenose and lots of rat kingi's. Only two would have been takers. Nice conditions and good to have a bit of sunshine for a change.

If a man goes nowhere and theres no one there to see him, did he ever leave?

Good luck Ninja, we were out on the Mayor Knolls on Saturday and it was dead, no mutton ducks nothing at all, that tells me the Albies aren't in yet. If in your travels you come across an area with mutton ducks stay in that area, that is where the Albies will be. Also make sure you have a couple of Rapala CD14's or similar in your lure pattern, albies love them.

Ninja, we used to used the blue or green mackeral colours, but I don't think they are overly fussy, normally when you get into a patch of them every lure gets taken. One of the reasons I like the rapalas is that we fish light line and a rapala fully in their mouth/throat slows (chokes) them down a fair bit. But that does not always work as 2 years ago I got one of 12kg on 3 kg line which took 3 hours to land, the back hook was just in the corner of the mouth. Note that when using really light line I will use CD9's or 11's.

Chlorophyl charts seem to show a lot of dirty water a long way out. We were out the Mayor knolls a few weeks ago and had green slime coming up on the lines. Not sure if this is normal this time of year or maybe just all the rain? I haven't seen the water that green that far out before.
