m entering my brother JOSEF BROUGHTON into this competition. This is a beautiful bull mahimahi my brother(josef) caught on Christmas Day 2017 with myself (jacob) and our dad (Peter). We where fishing for marlin out of whangaroa. This wicked fish weighed 6.84kg and at the day of offical weighing it is the biggest mahimahi caught to date so far this season. Stunning fish and tasted amazing! And a bucket list fish ticked off for my brother! Felt like we where in Fiji!
She's got a snapper And beat us, lucky smart girl.
Spot the donkey
This is my 15 year old son Tipu - he has recently moved from wharf/boat fishing to surf casting & on his first surf cast trip caught a great sized snapper... He is a super keen fisherman and I myself have taught him the basics but he needs some extra help to be able to purchase some gear to continue is love for fishing!
They say its better when you eat it fresh.
