Marlin, Swords and Big Yellowfin
Fishing is sensational In New Zealand at the moment with excellent catches of Striped & Blue marlin throughout the East Coast and with Autumn setting the Swords are biting with some awesome catches being recorded out of the Bay Of Islands and further up the coast. El Donna landed a Nice Blue of 164kg the other day for anglers over from Australia and also a nice Yellowfin for an English visitor. YFT to 85KG have been landed so there is still plenty of action in New Zealand at present.
We also saw a new pending World record Striped marlin of 211kg landed on 37KG line the other day. If you ever wanted a chance at a world record striped marlin then the Bay Of islands is your place for one.
