ill kick off the bay - temps are high on the fishfinder temp gauges, a report from craig on r'n'r had temp at 19deg at cobra and were getting a regular 18-19deg at the pins, large upwellings on the trip top the pins are more and more common and the sea is blue -  sunfish, flying fish are more common, skippies, albies on the jigs, big slimy maccas also and well...large kingfish! still about
 
there are a group of right whales cruising about and we had them free jumping for a group of lucky anglers on the boat..along with a pod of pilot whales
 
there are alot of gannets diving randomly, jesus christs birds are prolific and so are the mutton ducks. albatrosses and mollyhawks indicating theres alot of surface bait so im sure it wont be long before we see a beakie popping up
 
theres XOS maccas in the bay if you want to troll some livies for a pre-seaon look - i know ill be doing a shakedown run now sanity is game rigged and ready for any action.
 
get out there!

Tobez and I shot out for a look today. Trolled up towards Red Merc from The pins north of the Aldies after putting a nice king on ice for dinner.  Worked the 400m line and water up to ~21 degrees and reasonable colour.  We came in a bit as we neared the middle ground and just after midday had a nice (we both called it for a blue) take the long corner, pop it's head up and give a good windscreen wipers exhibition before it fell off - bugger!  Plenty of sunfish out there but not a lot of bait.  Ran into one school of alberts in a similar area to where we hooked the marlin.  Good to know they're there!

It ate this lure:

just kingi fishing mate.  more predicatable gamefishing at the moment is the smoking 25kg kings! they are cranking.  manage to sneak an hour max. on the albies (and the odd marloon lureWink) at the end of the day but no game trips until the season cranks into gear, in the meantime keeping track of where the action is and we'll knock some off in late jan/feb

as for fish in the vhf.....may have been a bigeye as they were saying was in the 200kg range....

I don't know of any $4k prize or $50k jackpot Fishb8, possibly if this was during the 'Classic', but a Club  'Jackpot' prize if there even  is one, surely wouldn't go this early in the season. I may be wrong, but I've certainly not heard about anything like that.   This is only a Tuna Tourney, not the One Base (if you could call it that now)...

 Couldn't agree more about checking your gear. Cheers

You dont have to go far Gunsmoke had a marlin rip through some skippies he was targeting by Whale ,not sure where he got his marlin havent spoken to him yet .Marlin caught in 80 mtres outside red and at the hook and everywhere in between .I have been told the further south of Red you go the water gets cooler and greener and not so much activity ,but as you go north of Red the water gets bluer and temps more cosistant .havent heard anything from Alderman end but the boats doing the Tauranga Comp were probably down that way ,must be a report on that comp on here

Has Brian landed that blue on Bounty Hunter yet?

-------------
www.kavemantackle.co.nz


Posted By: BountyHunter
Date Posted: 16 Jan 2011 at 7:33pm
No we didn't land the blue. It took a livebait, which we let run until there was about 200 m of line left on the reel.  (37 kg on a 80W) We thought we had it hooked, so kept pressure on it. After about 15 minutes the line went slack, we think it swam back at us and spat the bait, so not hooked at all.
Not too sure what else we could have done, although a third person on the boat would have been helpful. 
Good display when he took the bait though!
Plenty of fish out there - also had a shortbilled spearfish take a lure, but spat that too!
Another thing I've never seen before - a sunfish jumping right beside us - didn't realise they could launch themselves so far out of the water! Jumped out of the water 4 times beside us.
This is Julie writing this by the way! Brian may tell you a different story!

Went out today put the lures in couple of kms past Richards rock lots of skippies and albies around trolled out towards the hook. Saw free jumping mako and a rather large whale breach well out of the water amazing sight. Lots of activity in the morning birds etc but no stick beaks, headed out to the 300 metre mark and watched the boat next to us hook into a rather large blue jumped right by the boat. Things went quiet in the avo trolled back past the hook and saw a free jumper at the 140m mark so they are certainly around. Dad got the yellow fin yesterday was around 20kg can assure you it was very tasty...
