Albies have been smoked, tasted good. I havent seen water that blue for a long time, was nice to be out there.

I weighed a 122 kilo stripey for a couple of guys a week or two back     that died early on. That's the first one I had heard of  of the fish I've weighed. It looked no different than any other stripey I've seen.

Just because a fish is not tail wrapped at the boat does not mean that it was not tail wrapped earlier in the fight and then unraveled once it died due to a different angle of pull.

Hi marligator, maybe you're right that it tail wrapped earlier in the fight Or like jayr said with the double hook setup as that's the same rig the boys were using. It's hard to tell when you're not on board. I'm just going off the stories they gave. Thanks

Hey Josh,Scott here Rhys brother,we were out with the boys on my boat when they caught it. The boys borrowed two of my lures put them out the back and within 30 minutes had the beast hooked,I had a look at the trace tonight and I'm no marlin expert but I'm pretty sure she was tail wrapped. There is about 40cms of obvious bill rash up the trace and then the next 2.5 meters is badly rubbed,as in no clear outside left on it, which I'm guessing means she was wrapped?what drags your 80 set at? The boys had no idea what they were up to and max dragged it from the go,they recon they could barely hold it so it must of been at least 15kg!!, awesome run your boats having man, good ****,I'm keen as to head out to the trench with you boys one day.

Hey Scott how’s it going? Thanks for your message. Next time I’ll try get the full story before posting it on here.🤐 Sorry fellas. As for those reels I’ve set the drags so strikes at 12kg while running 37kg line. I think the boys may have panicked when they saw the line disappearing off the reel quickly and jammed it on full drag. Lucky it never snapped. Anyway they got what they were chasing. I’ve always wanted to do a trip to the Mokau Trench but I wouldn’t have a clue where the trench is. Maybe/hopefully someone on this site can point us in the right direction.

Nakifisho yes that "milky" 2.5m section of trace is a dead giveaway that the fish was tail wrapped for a while at least.
Mahora all good you have absolutely nothing to apologise for at all.
