Great day on the water today. Tagged 2 fish on bucket list.
Estimated 95 kg and 130 kg.
Bonze light gauge set up.
Both pulled 500 mtrs string so chased them hard.
The new talica 50 made light work of one.
Hopefully they stick around for few more weeks!

Congratulations that is exceptional to get your first one solo in a 14ft tinny.
Wouldn't have been easy getting it aboard I imagine.

Got my first marlin this afternoon, solo in a 14 foot stabi, 85m of the oil rig, was just thinking of heading in, as wind had picked up about 12:00, and a hit, on the lumo sprocket
 100kg, took a bit long, to get him in alone, and wouldn't recover,
 chatter on the radio was a few others tagged and caught.
 great day.

Biggest one was 5kg - we dropped a couple around this size maybe a fraction bigger.

We got into the Mahi Mahi in big numbers in about 70 Meters off the chimney last night. Schools over over  hundred of them jumping out of the water chasing Saury. Heard Blackwatch Tag a stripey in 80ish meters. Some big albies about chasing the marlin lures. 
Cut up something wicked about 7.30 and was a tough ride home (Raincoats Required) in the little frewza!

Hi Salty, swellmap is a myth these days (since it was bought out by a us company cupla years ago), used to be real accurate back in the day but now i don,t know why anyone bothers with it to tell the truth. try 'windguru' and click on npl or oakura.. buoyweather is still a solid site i use and metvuw (not metview). This wed/thurs is a screaming north/north east system with 3-4mtr swell and a bit of precipitation. thurs maybe do-able in the arvo but will have hell of a residue chop. id say fri the day and saturday, then it craps out sun. Never know it could change hopefully for the better. looks like at this stage next tues/wed/thurs could be sweet. pm me if u want an update on weather later in week

Small craft advisory on fish track but last few days haven't been that accurate,
Probably a case of just doing it and see what happens.
In saying that you probably wouldn't want to be out there in a open top dinghy and a rain coat this weekend.

Hi Pirate
Thinking of heading down again for Friday and Saturday but swell map forcast is all over the place. Please give me your experienced opinion weather it is fishable or not Cheers Glenn.

Still some fish here Dave, I went out yesterday to the hook, only one knockdown and a billrashed lure to show for our efforts. not many boats out so not a good guage, its a big ocean.. Boys in there bigger craft were having pack attacks and plenty of action at the nipple and between there and the knuckle. Chris on reef spirit has been having a blinder he,s being getting amongst it with some doubles and Ken on Waikeori is slaying them too. In saying that my mate boated a 102 kg tailwrapped in 95mtrs inside the hook today and app some caught off oakura in close. it seems they are everywhere. Water is fantastic 23 degs
