Sn6 Ep5: Manaia Harbour

Milan is in Coromandel looking for big kingfish – and the place does not disappoint!

Milan is on a solo mission doing what he does best: livebaiting for massive kingfish in Coromandel. Things get hectic though as his big livebait gets inhaled by ne kingfish after the other, and with no Nathan around to help with anchor and boat driving, chaos strikes in the little boat.

Top Catch Bait & Berley



Milan and Nathan’s Manson anchor holds the boat firmly on the spot and only lets go when told to.

The Minn-Kota makes it possible to sneak up close to big fish without them suspecting anything. The silent Verado from Mercury gets the guys from A – B and it is as silent and fuel efficient as outboards get.

Head into your local Top Catch store for all your bait and berley. Top Catch staff will help you get onto the fish quicker and with local knowledge, you are already halfway there.
