Monsters on the Ranfurly Banks

Michael hooked up  

Michael nice at 30kg
 Hi all, well as the tittle stats there are some true monsters turning up on the Furly. Last trip seen a group of  very keen jiggers from Singapore wanting to get amongst some ranfurly giants and the place didn't disappoint. Hapuka fishing was good with the best going a massive 51kgs, this is one of the biggest true hapuka we have seen in a very long time, and kingi fishing wasn't far behind with Rahim boating the best two that went a huge 36 and 39kg well done that man, many others in the mid to high 20.s fell to the jigs as well. Top water is just starting to fire up with water temps climbing over the magic mark of 20c so watch out for some good reports on top water in the next few weeks. Cheers for now Lance 

Remy Cham 51kg!!!!

Siong  solid 32kg king

Rahim HUGE 39kg kingi

Good 28kg Ranfurly kingi 

Michael happy with this 26kg kingi

Rahim again smashes monsters at 36kg

Capt Phil finds the hogs at white island

Mohammed starts the trip at the night's anchorage 20kg

Mohammed getting worked hard
 Hi all, just back from an overnighter to White Island with an Aussie angler looking to tangle with some monster NZ kingfish and wow did it put on a show producing some monster kingi's up to 32kg. In a great start to the trip the night fishing came alive, providing a nice warm up for the carnage that was to come the following day. Squid were in abundance around the island and the flying fish were literally jumping in the boat trying to escape the packs of marauding kingi's. Consistent action throughout the day and a few hogs in the mix are surely a promising sign of things to come. It's great to see White Island back at its best and can't wait to get back out there. Till next time cheers, Phil.
