Big South Island puka

Troy Dando and Gavin Williams pull in some monster Puka.

"This trip we headed out to the deep water, with a plan to test out our wicked Simrad Electronic and to target some good table fish. Hapuka, grouper, puka what ever you call them are an "A" grade eating fish and sort after. It was also a good chance to take the new Shimano Beastmaster 9000 Electric Reel, which when short crewed helps out as it enables me to drive the boat while the line is still getting wound in. Some great fish are landed and my good mate Gavin gets dealt to on his Jigging Master Ocean Devil UL rod and JM Powerspell PE3 reel. Good times in the deep."
