Well, I too will have to step down from this trip.  I was thinking this trip would take a year to plan, giving me time to get work settled and finances planned out.  The next six months are pretty hectic for me, so international travel is no-go.  You guys have a great trip and I will be living through your posts.  Rich

Anne can't go. It's the middle of income tax season. Otherwise she'd be all-in.
I'm very surprised at the lukewarm response to this bucket list trip. With the favorable exchange rate, it may never be cheaper for US fishermen to go there.

If possible it would be good to arrange an Ohana dinner while you guys are here in Auckland as there are a few members here.

Thoughts?

Cheers Peter

I think that's a great idea. I'm thinking about renting a car for a week to give us some mobility. The Go Kiwi shuttle is somewhat expensive. Round trip to Whitianga is $125US per person. 4 people sharing a rental is about $90 each I lived in the UK for 3 years  (and I live in south Georgia) so I'm somewhat used to driving on the wrong side of the road.

Afraid not. Just about everyone who originally expressed an interest in the trip had to back out for various reasons. Alan and Joy were the only serious candidates.
It would have been a bucket list trip for me!

Rick (roosterfish) came down last week and we chased kings for a few days on the Coromandel.
Was great fun.
Hopefully you'll be able to make it work another time...
I'll join yas when you do!
Cheers, Justin

Hey Justin, just ordered a Battle Royale from Chris Wong @ Jigmaster. Your buying diner next as cant believe I spent that much for a rod--brilliant idea on your part-thanks. Been doing a lot of research on Ranfurly .Boulder told me about Coastal Fishing Charters in Hicks Bay----google it but they seem very spendy. Talked to Carl and he is keen to do 3 days down there in Nov and we can do that for about 1/2 the price----3 guys max. Did my pics finally come through on the text---wife sent them again. Stay intouch.
