    Region 2 - Reports
    A friend of mine hooked into 18 yesterday, up on the north island! They said they couldn't get those buggers off the downriggers!

  8. Netting a fish in a boat alone

    More often than not I fish alone. I'd love to hear stratagies for netting a fish while you're alone and trolling. I generally use 2 downriggers and would prefer to keep trolling as I land the fish.
