    Another big day out on the water. Got 4 Albacore in an hour and then had to come in to get over the bar at high tide. Biggest 85cm and maybe 10kg, great fun on the light gear.

    I'm going to use this as a general thread for reporting on me doing dumb stuff catching fish in a boat that most people would say is far too small to be sensible.

    You know what they say "Its not the size that matters, but how you use it"

    What are the details on your boat setup there? Looks pretty handy

    Another big day out off Hokitika yesterday, 12 hours on the water to catch high tide on the bar both ways. Had a bit of an explore of some new bottom and came home with a few large blue cod and terakihi, also caught a million spiny dogs, sea perch and a 1.5m school shark. Glassed right off and spent 4 or 5 hours trolling for tuna to no luck. Any ideas on how to target them a bit more specifically? No visible boundary to the blue water at the moment as we've had such a long dry spell, so it's right close in and there's a gradual change from clear green water right off the bar just dropping off to clear blue as you go out. Still chasing the elusive first hapuka, bass, bluenose and trumpeter from the dinghy too.

    Fantastic looking day out there.
    I am no Tuna expert but when I fished for them up north we used binos and were constantly looking for any sign of birds working, or in weather like that, any disturbance on the surface.

    you might need a temp gauge to find the warmer water apparently you need to troll along where the warm current runs along the colder water if you believe the tuna experts that you see on tv.
