White Island is the trip destination but first, Milan and Nathan have to cross the treacherous Whakatane Bar for the first time.
Once safely at White Island, the initial obstacles were well worth it: Milan and Nathan are straight into some line ripping huge trevally. The new tool in the box is an electric reel designed for deep-water fishing and this is the best chance to test it out.
Milan is fast at picking up the new techniques and catches his first ever hapuka, having a great time. Nathan struggles a bit with this new style of fishing, but soon gets his first hapuka as well.
