It’s here that I hope to find my target species, the spectacular-looking Pink Maomao.  And, hopefully, some big ones.


Clarke desperately seeks a Pink Maomao!  After battling with an enormous Kingfish, Clarke plans to bring back the promised and much sought-after fish, the Pink Maomao.  At about 25-30 kilometres from the coast of Gisborne lies a reef on a continental shelf, which then plunges some 800 metres deep!  Clarke dives in on in a quest for his future meal… a much more challenging task than it would first appear!
