Sunfish tags and releases Striped Marlin at Mayor Island, New Zealand

Game fishing in the Bay of Plenty

Congratulation to angler Wayne Hunt on catching his first Marlin.

The 120kg Striped Marlin was caught from Sunfish 1 on the 5th of February '11 near Mayor Island in the Bay of Plenty. The angler was in the fighting chair for 45 minutes before the Marlin was tagged and released by the team.

Wayne wrote to us after his great game fishing experience:

"On behalf of myself , Pete M, Peter T & Alan, I sincerely thank you for hosting a truly memorable game fishing trip from Tauranga. I have been on many charters all over the world, and I can honestly say in terms of total package “enjoyment” ...you personally and your charter rates are right up there with the best I’ve experienced."
