I was out from Whakatane on Sat. Skippies at 43m (one lure to a mako), marlin lures in at 60m and out to 100m. Eventually headed back towards Whale and had a strippy interested at 73m but no joy. Didn't find any decent temp breaks. Congrats to the boats that pulled YFT that day.

Albacore schools are like vertical cigars - a column from surface down to 50 metres, so not a!bids but could be jack macs and marlin.

Spent Sunday to Tuesday dragging lures from mayor to mercs and back. Saw a couple of free jumpers around 450 and a couple of boats hooked up (not sure what to). Water up to 22ish but not blue anywhere. Best action was a gang attack of kings over the penguins.

If you ever want to catch yourself a big hammerhead in NZ the western side of Mayor is the best place. I like them they give a good scrap and are a great fish for inexperienced crews to practice on. We have hooked up to five in a day in that area. I personally think they almost give a better scrap than most stripeys do, they just don't do the aerial display, but they usually do 2 or 3 good runs.

Big 3 days for us. Ammo dump to 800m on Friday. Looked very fishy with inky blue water, 22 deg and birds everywhere. Saw a couple of spearfish jump and a large tuna break the surface but no result. In closer to the Hook the water was greenish and 21 deg. Saturday 400m to the Middle ground and South to the Aldies. Water was blue and 21.8 deg but devoid of life. Found a 0.5 deg temperature break in 160m behind the Aldies and dropped a live bait. Hooked into a feisty mako that was tagged and sent on it's way. Sunday headed out to 200m outside the Aldies and found blue water and 21.8 deg. Saw 2 x free jumpers. Dropped a live bait in the general area but could not get a bite. So a lot of miles for no fish. The radio was quiet, only 2 x tuna and 1 x marlin caught for the whole 3 days so we were not the only ones who struggled.

At last count we are over 140 hours for this season with one strike on the first weekend of December (Bigeye) which we lost after 25mins. Other than that it has been dead as can be. So many boats trying for very few fish.
Dont let the grey hair fool you!
