Big Hauraki Bass!
It's not often you pull in a deepwater bass whilst still in sight of Auckland's Sky Tower, but that's what Connor Scott and the Honda Marine film crew did last month.
Admittedly, the team needed their binoculars to see the Sky Tower, but you have to go to the very outskirts of the Hauraki Gulf to get to the big hapuka!
Just shy of the Mokohinaus our team landed two massive fish and the Honda BF60 only used 50 litres of fuel doing so - total distance travelled seeking the big one was 201km for the day from launch to retrieval.
Two great fish and still plenty of fuel left in the tank. There's some great footage below, but don't expect to see the secret spot!
