got out to mayor for 3 days pulling lures , result was 15 albacore and 1 y/fin  the y/fin 13 kg was part of a double hit the other fish was a albacore  sea rough as on the last day , word is a number of back marlin have been seen  around mayor  one in 40 meters  up by the reserve  ne side of the island, most of the albies we got  where right on top of the alderman rise , but talking to  a niwa scientist friend of the skippers when we got in,  he was saying the albies a really over the place even inside brewers shoal

Before this westerly flow 200-300m back of the Aldies seemed to be quite productive for YFT - best day was 27 about a week ago but there were a couple of trebs in that and quite a number of boats fishing. Also heard a double up round the Hook area so certainly a few about and worth a look when the weather settles.

Did a few miles for not many smiles today out of Pauanui today. Initially headed towards Mayor out to 280m and although we picked up a few Albert's the water didnt get above 21.4.
Headed back to behind the Aldies where the water was 23.6.
Pretty quiet day to be fair but a visit from a few dolphins picked our spirits up.
Can change in a heart beat so we'll have anorher crack in a few days.

Took my step daughter Caitlyn out for a gamefish yesterday to try and catch her first marlin, also was the first days game fishing in the new boat. Went out through the Kaituna Cut and headed out the back of Plate Island, water was pretty green and lousy until we got to 150m where I slowed down and put the gear in the water at about 8am. Wandered on out and got into an area in 400m with a heap of Mutton Ducks wheeling around and it looked really fishy, so worked this area and just after 9am the RG1 Koheru on the short rigger got nailed. Well behaved fish which swam away with a tag in it about 35 minutes later, a nice little fish of about 65-70 kg. Not bad to have the first marlin for the boat hooked up in just over an hours trolling (previous owner had caught a heap of fish from it, so new it raised fish). Caitlyn was wrapped to get her first marlin and get that monkey off her shoulder, she just wants to get a bigger one now to hang on the scales.

That's just what the doctor ordered.
Happy family and even keener crew.

And a happy skipper with a new successful toy.

Got to be pleased with that.

Just wondering where is currently (pardon the pun) the best place to top up the freezer with skippies? Thanks people and may I wish you all good luck and safe returns to port.

A couple of nice bluefin tuna for the Tauranga based vessel Leander with skipper Vaughan Mitchell at the helm.

These fish were caught between White Island and Waihau Bay for anglers Nick Peters, Dan Peters, and Arrum Ali on another boat.

Great catch!

Have found them schooling this time of year in 100 -140m of water.  They dont fight much but taste great if you get one with no worms.

You can try gutting them immediately on getting them aboard. I may be wrong but I think the worms burrow into the flesh from the gut.
Maybe someone can confirm if this is true or not...

Cos there is a strict criteria the fish must go through with IGFA rules and NZ Sportfishing rules, so they will measure and scrutinise the line, double, leader, lure and hook rig, method of capture, flying gaff rope length and so on...

I think in terms of a NZ Record it has to be approved with the NZ Sportfishing council, previously NZ Big Game Fishing Council which most NZ gamefishing clubs affiliate to...

Big Fish Bob, Bob Gutsell President of NZ Sportfishing Council please add comments...Clap

PS, I do not know if Angler is a Junior (under 16)

As someone who has broken both collar bones, I know how uncomfortable it must have been but using your legs is the proper way to play a fish. These are the strongest muscles of the body.

Did a day out to back of Cuvier and beyond on 30th Dec. 14 hour day in the 490 stabi and she wasn’t calm apart from small lee at back of Cuvier. Was good day with variety of fish and even had strike on the centre rigger, running 30 everol which wife landed a small albie off. Certainly got heart racing when it popped clip though.
Got a couple of  big grand daddy puka and few nice snapper, pulled hook on real big snapper on a butterfly jig that played a while before pulling hook near boat. Finished off with a nice king late in day jigged off never fail. As we made our way back to matarangi in a sloppy sea. There were big schools of large kahawai at back of mercs being harassed by big predators ... at least one big shark and few big kings. Wife took some nice photos as below.

There's a few fish about between Aldies and North of the Hook. Stripeys and YFT and action area yesterday was from the Hook to about 5nm South. Depth 150-250m. YFT boated in ~100m depth off the Red later in the day.

Sorry for the slow response, I only had my phone with me on holiday, and I only use that for checking Facebook and Email...and occasionally doing phone calls! Strange but True!

There are separate application processes for NZ and International records, because the records are administered by two different organisations. There is quite a bit of information to be recorded on each application form, and also requires samples of line for testing, etc. So until all that is received reviewed and line tests complete, record applications are referred to as pending. It usually takes a few weeks for NZ records, but IGFA can take much longer, up to 6 months in some cases for no apparent reason. They certainly won't be any quicker with international shipping on a go slow.

Thanks,

Hope you get a result.

My pending question was originally for what type of record.
But all that answered now.

Cheers.
