Hi all, the last couple of Ranfurly trips have been ok but not on fire and in the last report i said this would change and change it did big time for Richard Foong and his merry jigging men from Singapore the boy's had a stunner of a trip smashing big kingi's up one after the other with many multiable hook ups, tangles and kaous .when the dust settled, there were five over 30kg and two over 40kg with the best pulling the scales down to 45kg, great to see these monsters weighed, photo's taken and returned to the water to breed and grow even bigger. The boy's didn't stop there they went hunting for a big bass and find it they did in the way of this 60kg beast, the fish pulled our angler around like a rag dole railing him time after time, great battle to watch unfold. Then to put the icing on the cake they tagged an released this stripey off lotten point on the way home. Well done guy's big thumbs up, till next week cheers Lance.

 Hi all well as the title states white island is still hot as with very consistent kingi fishing at present, the latest group of hard core Truckies lead by Mark Tucker had a ball with the white island freight trains landing many in the high teens and Steve landing the whopper of the week at 30kg well done boys. White island has been a pleasure to be around the last month with some very good kingi fishing and just at the moment dare i say better then the ranfurly with size and numbers, this will change watch this space as we line up for another jig raid on ranfurly  till next week cheers Lance

Ranfurly Banks

Abri with a nice 26kg kingi
Hi all just back from the banks and well it had to happen after months of great fishing the edge has gone off the kingis. The latest trip with Fanus Crous and his friends and family was somewhat hard, the  boys put in a some big days with the kingi's just not on fire, they still managed some good results but had to work at it so all was not lost. The best fish a prime 31kg  fell to a jig no less and there were many more in the high and low 20's. yer I know you are saying whats wrong with that but this is the furly and we are just blessed with monster kingi's and when we only get 1 over 30kg we think our throats have been cut. Puka fishing was a wee bit hard as well with Vlum landing the monster of the pack at 50kg well done mate.

White island on fire

Vlum with a 25kg kingi
 Hi all , well the last week has been at the smokey island of white and boy have the kingi's come on the bite big time as they get ready for spawn. the week has had some epic kingi fishing as good as it gets really with many hot bites and men pulled to the rail one after the other as the white island hogs have there way with them, jigs have come into force big time with them out fishing bait on many occasions, first time in maybe a few years has this happened not sure why but the jiggers are sure not complaining. On the bottom fishing front it's been hard work for very little result all apart from Henrik who broke the trend and landed this prime bass. The last trip was with the boys from General cable and they too got ripped apart from a hot bite that smashed rods and pulled men to the rail as well. good to see the smokey ile on fire at long last. Till next week cheers Lance
