Three of us went out to 96m in our kayaks and one of my mates caught two albies. 
Water themp up to 18.5 degrees but no blue water in sight.    Moderate bird activity around bait balls.

We trolled for 3 hours off NP last night. Albies in at 50m, some big suckers too. Didn't seem like a lot out further towards 90 meters. Our temp reading was saying 20deg (not sure how calibrated).  Unconfirmed fish broke surface not far behind saddleback on a big bait ball.

Bait still patchy and sporadic hits on the tuna lures

Alstoy    Before you set yourself up as judge of who can post on this forum I invite you to come out with us for a 35km paddle (as we did on Monday) then you will quickly realise who puts more effort in catching game fish.

1st troll for the season off NP. Minimal bird life and none working. 7kg albacore @ 90m but that's all. Trolled round the knuckle and back without seeing any bait/tuna on the surface. Water temp 19.9 on my elite7.

Better than working tho......

Out with three other yak fishers yesterday.    What a change.    Water temp up to 20.6 and deep blue almost to the islands.    We all scored well on albies ranging from babies up to 10kg models.    Plenty of sauries and rat kings around.    Best albie and bait around the 50m zone and that is where I saw a stripy free jumping just ahead of my kayak at 53m.     Hard paddle back against the wind and confused waves from beyond the tank farm.    Slept well last night.

Tagged our second of the season in 79m off Kawhia on Friday. Drooped another in 90m the following day. Few fish around at the moment, good to see.
It's better to be lucky than good!

Kawhia one base runs from 11th 12th 13th. Really well run comp now with a very good following.Normal rules as in any one base but he only change they should make is drop the shark section. Whats the point in chasing them. Should be done nz wide and I think some clubs have already dropped them out of there comps already.

Briefing 0n the Wed 10th. Good luck and hope to see you there. Out wide next three days. Cheers.

You are right there. Put the shark prizes into the tagged Marlin section. Maybe have 1st-10th for tag and release. Good venue for a comp, will definitely be there for the Quota Comp 1st week in March.
