Guess there is very little to add, after a slight incident involving a dirt bike last weekend, i really thought i wouldnt make it. So glad i took the spoon of cement and went along.
As always a fantastic trip,i took home 3 snapper over 10 lb and a nice big JD, so no complaints, and stoked for Hainesy and KK, its been a while since ive heard such screams of delight on the water,Well earned.
Captain Pete was his normal self , as helpful as ever , So yep , another memory maker..
Now back to cleaning gear!!! ;) :y:

It was great to catch up with DJ and I must say my hat goes off to that man . After coming off second best with a scrap with a dirt bike DJ was clutching his ribs and winching in pain everytime he extended himself on this trip , loading yaks ,loading gear , getting in and out of the yak ect ect ect . But in true testament to how tough DJ is he boxed on with no complaints and actually put in the longest hours on the water :y: ( mind you he only goes fishing once a year ! :lol: ) You are a tough bugger DJ :rock:

Epic trip boys!
Can't add much to what's been said. Lucky with the weather again.
Cuvier has been on the top of my "want to fish" list for a couple of years now and it certainly didn't disappoint.
I landed some good snaps but nowhere near my PB. Got a Kingi on a small snapper jig as well.

Seeing KK hook that Marlin was amazing. I missed the first jump but saw the splash. There was so much white water I thought it was a big bait school being chased to the surface but then it jumped again. I was on the boat about 500m (I guess) from the fish and it looked huge from that distance. Must have look like a bus flying out of the water from where KK was. A big "O" for awesome! :rock:

Oh, and if you loan your waterproof camera to your wife, check the lens for sun screen and/or make-up or you'll end up with pictures like this.
Just as well we took some with Steve's camera otherwise it would have been tears all round.

Already looking forward to next time.

I take my hat off to the guys who actually go out and target these fish :y:
I was talking with another forum member last night who had his own experience yesterday with a Marlin and has video footage of the aerial display these fish put on :rock:
