Hi all well at long last our game season has been kicked of with Paul from Auckland tagging and releasing a nice stripey on the way home from our latest ranfully, and to be fair it was the icing on the cake from at ripper of a ranfurly trip.The boys had a ball with a red hot bite that just got better and better as the trip got longer, Pb's were being smashed day after day with a sensational kingi bite. top three went 36kg,38kg and a brute that pulled the scales down to 42kg, not to mention a hot run on the puka to 35kg with many doubles. This season is going down as a stunner with 5 fish over the 40kg mark , Ranfurly rocks. till next week cheers Lance

Ranfurly Banks

Hi all, latest trip down the furly was another good one with Grieg Hill and the boy's from Power Jig. Kingi's seem to have moved from the shallows and gone deep with the best results coming from 120+ mtrs, best fish was a very respectable 32kg with a few others just going over the 30kg mark, many more in the high 20's and some hog's on the stick baits as well. The weather in our so called summer is just about a joke with a steady diet of south to south east gales making it hard work on the bank most of the time, we will hope for a better feb and march weather wise that's for sure but as i say it's OK if the sea is rough as long as the fish are biting and we have been lucky with great fishing on the bank this season so bugger the weather. till next week cheers Lance

Boy's from Power Jig,well done guy's
