I still haven’t seen the fish… this is the biggest Kingfish I’ve ever caught on a jig!  Oh, man!  What a fight!


Clarke takes us to the East Coast of New Zealand, to the superb setting of Gisbourne.  After quickly putting  the Merry Fisher 795 in the water, they head for the reef of Tatapouri, an ideal spot for diving and fishing.  Clarke battles hard while fishing on a jig for Kingfish (in the mackerel family!).
