    Nice one got landed last year from Kaikoura , not sure if it was there target species . What water Temperature do they need @Gibo , its probably only a small window of a few weeks I'm guessing . Not sure if they get them on the west coast ? There Tuna fishing is legendary

    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    When the Hoki / and boats turn up would be the time to hunt them mobile burley machines and the food source to boot ...tuna / swordfish combo or just one would be epic!

    Have a look at New Zealand Sport Fishing Council - NZSFC - Home Page - Home under Nationals.
    Results should be posted after tomorrow. Should give an idea on what's going down South

    This is from a few years ago of the West Coast. I was on a Big Kiwi Trawler working as a fisheries observer. Theres swords there too. We'd pick them up occassionally in the mid water gear. Hokitika Trench would be a good place to look.
