We lost our double but the rest were for other boats. 
One boat tagged 2 and dropped 2so that's 15 marlin encounters as far as I know.
Last season there were more stripies caught from Raglan than Whangaroa....then Kawhia fish, too. West coast is hotter than the NE, especially when we are all day, trailer boats. Almost no launches that do stay away trips.

Had a run out to Raglan today, lures in the water at 70m headed towards the 124 with a couple of deviations along the way.
Came across a Sea lion sunning him or herself and that was the only fin we got to see other than a couple of Dolphins on our way back in at 48meters.  A few birds here and there but a very quiet day on the boat. Surprising enough the water temp got colder the further out we went, there were a couple of other boats out there that were working the area.
    A Good Skipper Keeps the water on the outside of the boat.

I made a post on FB asking was the Raglan area (from NP to Manakau) was the new BOI?
The NE was traditionally the top marlin area. Was that because more there were more anglers, especially in launches, fishing there?
Trailer boats that can fish to the deeper areas, and way more trailer boats.
Last year, the Whangaroa gamefish club recorded almost identical stripy numbers as Raglan - Kawhia had a similar haul, too. Whangaroa had a good few YFT and less but numerous Blues, SB Spearfish and Mahi. A couple of seasons ago NP had >500 stripies, too.
Has there always been as many stripies off West coas as the NE?

Watched 2 marlin weighed at Kawhia last evening, one was a pathetic specimen that should have been let go, the other was a good fish, 139kg, both on the same boat.

Speaking of pathetic specimens a 57kg stripie was weighed at new plymouth couple weeks ago.first fish for boat apparantly.looked like a heavily pregnant piper.The anglers got a photo in front of board but didint want fish in picture.not a good look with a large crowd gathered around.

A bit of good news, one tagged off Rags was recaptured up Hokianga way a week later, info from our commadore at Kawhia.

Over the weekend at Kawhia another couple tagged today and one weighed.

Seems to be a lot of small stripe marlin around we tagged one inside the knights last week would have been lucky if was 50kg and the ones we had in the gear off the manukau the week before that were tiny to all looked in that 60kg range with extra long juvenile bills popping the riggers and not hooking up.

Good day out yesterday on the hunt for a Marlin.
Found Albies at 155m water was colder out wide than closer in so headed in. Found birds and started marking bait, spent some time following the birds around as they were circling and diving then my mate seen a Marlin so we thought we must be in the right area.       Ten minutes later and we had a screaming reel, sped up and cleared the rest of the reels and we were on.                                          1hr 20 on the rod and we had her in the boat. 95.5kg first Marlin for me.
