Ran out on the slick calm Pacific ocean out to the wide grounds. Trolled for a bit the deep dropped for a few hours and caught a bunch of really nice big fish, hapukas and blue eye trevallas. Lots of porpoise and a few whales still heading north to Hervey Bay. We will be there in a couple of weeks. Marlin fishing was slow, with only a couple of stripys seen inshore, back out in a day or so, so will see where they are.
