Our friend in New Zealand landed a world class catch. A snapper also known as a squire fish at 26.2 pounds.

" Hey Jack,
In kiwi land Bruce's fish is called a snapper IGFA call it a squire fish. It hit the scales at 26.2lb. Bruce said it is equivalent to a 300lb yellowfin tuna in southern California terms (guess you will understand that) chances of catching one!!!!!!!!!
So the next day he takes his friend out and his mate catches a 28.2lb baby. Does this sound like a shortened version of a Del Marsh story!!!!! "
Hope you are well

The Accurate family fished Kona Hawaii during the month of July.
The focus was on pacific blue marlin. Kona is a pleasure to fish because of the
ideal weather, calm seas and a chance to hook into huge blue marlin. This was not our year for a big one, but we will give it another try next year.
We had the pleasure to fish with three different captains and boats. Mike Rand of
Spellbound, Kent Mongreig of Fish Wish, and Steve Lassley of Bad Company were all great to ride with.
Steve Lassley and Keith O’Brien run an absolutely amazing boat, Bad Company.
We fished with or friends Pete Gray and Steve Pinard. Had a great time.
