I heard plenty of action on VHF off Oceans, 100m
But also up the coast as well, in the usual areas.

Lets see if Mr Krow will reign in with his deep drop results. Big smile

Out to Oceans on Sunday from Mangawhai with my bro Nipper, a bit choppy on the way out but dropped away by lunch time.
Lures in at 85 mtrs out to 105 mtrs, some big bait schools up to 25mtrs deep, came back in to 85 and picked up a couple of kawahai for the tuna tubes, half hour later pump dies and so do the live bait.
12.30 it all started, Marlin feeding in packs of 3 to 4 at a time, white water eruptions all around us with the Gannets going mental. Gannets were chasing the bait on the surface acting like mutin birds not having to dive for a feed.
The Gannets were following the marlin 3 or 4 birds only, so just looked for a few birds and the fish were their.
We chased and followed the explosions for 2 hrs but they were not interested in the lures and with no live bait it was a hopeless task.
We estimated that between 100 & 80 mtrs we saw at least 15 marlin, don't think they were the same fish as the groups of fish were smashing the bait schools at the same time with 100 mtrs between them.
Water temp 22.4 and Blue.
A great day will be back next weekend.

Was out oceans today around the 105 mark...live baiting all day. Nothing for me until I had packed everything away for the run in, released my family of three kahawai...I did think that is going to make something happen on the way in ditching my livies....sure enough 83 M few gannets going in and at least three marlin happily feeding. Pull up right beside feeding marlin completely unphased about the boat...but wait....luckily I had one blue maomao in the tank that I was going to let go back at the ramp...a quick bit of body piecing and over he went...got about 10ft below the boat before the reel starting singing..got about 15 min of fun and games before the hook pulled...wasn’t that upset as it was 1720 when I hooked up and solo with no night lights set up wasn’t going to fun.
Funny how 15 mins can change your day...made my day.
