This is a great fish caught by a friend from Mana
Thought it might be of interest as it was caught fairly locally for people in Abel Tasman
Not that often that you get the fish of a life time but this is probably it. One week away at Westport in Southern Cross from Mana and back to Mana.
All most entirely in calm and comparatively warm weather + a 263 KG blue fin ( 580lbs) to make the trip really memorable. Lindsey Haagh was the angler and it is a world record for a Lady angler!
