Ranfurly Getting Better by the day

Hi all, just returned from another good trip down the banks, this time we had the boys from Yeehaa with some of their good clients, and the banks fired up well with the best kingi going 33kg and the best hapuka a huge 38kg. I cant remember such a good run of monster puka , these last few trips have seen some true hogs on the bottom dwellers long may it last. Water temps are still struggling to reach 16c and this is slowing down the kingi bite, but we are not complaining still lots of solid kingis in the 20-30kg range. I'm picking once temps hit 17c all hell will break lose on the bank as they will feed up hard for their spawning. till next week cheers Lance

Ranfurly between the gales

Hi all, Well the fishing has been good when we can do it without being BLOWN away, Man have we had enough of this shit weather or what, trip after trip we have gale warnings in force roll on summer. But when we can fish on the bank the results have been very rewarding with a nice run of fat pre spawn kingis, no real monsters on the last trip but good numbers of 20-30kg fish. Puka fishing picked up a bit with two huge puka that went 38kg and 40kg huge for hapuka. Till next week cheers Lance

Hi all just back from a four day trip down at the Ranfurly Banks jigging for king fish bass an Hapuka with a group of mad keen kiwi boys, despite all the bad weather that's been thrown at us lately we got some good fishing in on the bank with king fish up to 33kilo's as well as some great bottom fishing with the biggest bass going 36kilo's along with good numbers for the boys to take a good feed home.
Untill next time Cheers Steve
