RANFURLY IT'S A STICK UP !!!!!!!!


 Hi all,  well where to start just come back from one of the most epic stick bait fishing trips I have seen in my life,  and I have seen some good one's but this trip just blow us all away. We had the guru Mogi san with some of his extreme jiggers and top water expert's on board with enough tackle to start a good tackle store on the Ranfurly for a 4 day trip, the weather played ball and so did the fish in the way of three over the magic 40kg  mark and seven over the 30kg mark, best pulling the scales down to 49kg then 43kg and 41kg , sometimes the photo's just don't do the fish justice and so the case of the 49kg monster, in the flesh it was the biggest kingi we have ever seen if you look close at the photo, you are looking at it's belly and not even half of it's side, the problem we find with taking photo's of these monsters is the boys just struggle to present them properly so all big fish are sling weighed before release. The boy's only fished with top water bait's with very little jigging done and rightly so with top water going off like it did , at times there would be 5 or 6 anglers all hooked up on  good fish as well, the thing about top water thats so appealing is it's major visual, the sight of 20kg and 30kg fish shouldering each other out of the way to get at the stick bait is a real turn on, we even seen kingi's doing flips out of the water to attack the bait's. As the title states it was a great stick up best we have seen. Till next time cheers Lance
