  1. Here you go BP John Benton had a belter day out wide of Oakura today, fishing solo he wasn’t surprised about the yellowfin, but he wasn’t expecting Mahi Mahi. We are only in November folks! What other tropical visitors are going to arrive this season?
  2. 1st stripey caught doubtless bay last weekend so who knows??

  4. Jason (rudolfshack) has moved up in the world https://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listings.aspx?member=2328299
  5. Buying any production yacht from the 80s era it will more than likely have the 80s motor,need new sails etc hence why you can pick them up for silly prices. Most have only 10hps and 10 is too small for d28.Sat along side Moari rock holding our in a sw blow and tide going out,not fun. 40 yrs on and the osmosis problem should of been discovered by now. Buy a vessel for 20k more than likely need to spend 10k + so probably look at vessels with work thats been done for 35k.
  6. Its confusing to say the least.seals generally cold water and turtles warm water. Could it be different current layers??
  7. not a leopard seal but of late encountered a few black seals,3 outside of Kawau island and last Saturday in the Firth.thought it was a log till it rolled over for a suntan,just floating with the tide.Came close enough to see its dark black eyes.
