From Whangaroa Game Club;

Seven stripies this weekend, but mostly on the small size, ranging in the 60s, 70s and 80s kilo range, with 3 stripies caught by Wharangi, 2 fish at 101.8kg and a T&R. All caught on lures, and at: Sea Mount, Berghan's, Doubtless Bay, west of Cavallis, and one in the Bay of Islands. Also had a good albacore of 9.08kg for Stephen Burgess on The Pearl from Big Fish, at the Garden Patch, and a yellowfin of 53.2kg at the 505 for Richard Hart on JD.

Scary to see those small Stripies turning up more often. Not usually a good sign for the fishery.

Mattoo , you would think so but I still had a classic Fkup , feeding out second livebait, went straight under boat and tangled around prop on outboard which stalled with leader jammed around prop hub, nek minute long livey gets eaten , marlin jumping around and I have to reach out and cut off leader jammed around prop, pissing with rain, sloppy as, you get the picture!
Anyway got my **** together, sorted out mess and was able to fight and release marlin , sweat as job done, then went home.

Looking forward to #19

cheers swordfishsteveSmile

Crikey Steve,
That was doing it the hard way, pesky untrained livebaits huh.
Some fish need to pay more attention at school.

Even better result then.

Any yft or Mahi around.
