Puka are back,well some anyway still a bit skinny from spawning but good to see,

plenty of spinny dogs still around ,hope water warms soon,cheers


last couple trips hard fishing with cold dirty water ,but scraped a feed,back from holiday to coromandel looking forward to the season,cheers


had some realy good fishing at hunters of late with even a few snapper,who would believe it,cheers


durville has been good with a few kings but the big snaps have been harder to find amongest the pannies,still a few fat puka about but would expect them to head of to spawn about now ,just leaving the schoolies,

keep warm,cheers


Winter is here 10deg water at mana but still getting a few snapper ,big blue cod have come in makara coast ,with good trevs.

puka are still firing out deep with 3 drifts on the way back from durville yesturday the boys said that enough!

durville is red hot at the moment with snaps,trevs and teris[cod aswell ofcourse] jumping on the boat

keep warm,cheers


A rare day off ,fishing continues to be great ,durville trips have been exceptional with early retreats to the lodge with the guys fished out!

the boat opposite us shot up to newplymouth the other day and scored three marlin


hope your roof is still on after gita went through

Durville has been good the last few trips with more snapper at this time of year than ive seen,maybe tasman has got too hot for them,plenty of puka and nice tuna on the way,!cheers


A couple of days of with storm to chage oil etc,fishing has been great with the fat terakihi geing the top of the list ,only one tuna so far ,they are there just have to have the right lures i guess,best snapper for us has been 50-70m but the tope sharks have been there to



weather has been unbelievable ,fishing has been just as good,snapper are patchy but good when your on them,puka has been the best in years,



looks like i didnt miss much weatherwise

Alaska was amazing,fishing was quite a commercial affair wiyh the boats comming in ,unloading into a processing plant and the fish being filleted,packed and freighted frozen back to the customers home,nice clean boat!

looking forward to getting back out there,cheers


cold weather but fishing is still hot,Durville producing good snapper and trevs

Great day at Hunters yesterday with a good catch of teris and a couple of kingis
