Back on the Ranfurly Banks

Hi all, will after some RNR  Enchanter, CovaRose and crew are back into it full swing and what better place to start with than the famed Ranfurly banks. We have both just come off a six day trip with a bunch of keen aussy's booking both boats for a tandem trip, Great way to start with both boats rafted up each night in hicks bay for dinner swapping story's, and downing a few cold ones. The fishing was good but we had to work at it too produce some quality fish with many small to average sized kingi's charging in on the jigs, many fish were in the 15-20 kg range but with perseverance we managed to boat some real goody's with 7 over 30kg and the best going a respectable 37kg. Some fun was had on the stickbaits with many in the 20's and quite a few going into the high 20's, great to see  such early topwater action, it can only get better as the water temps warm up. Puka were a bit tough with us both having to work at it to produce the goods as they say but in the end some nice puka fell to the jigs with the best at 38kg. Well stay tuned in guy's as both boats have a busy schedule and the reports will be flowing in from now on, till next week cheers from Lance and Steve.
