Mahi mahi, tuna and a  bundle of rope

Darren Cleave from Maori Television fishing show ‘Matau’, pulls up rope discovered floating, while out fishing and filming with his brothers Martin and Jeff, on board Marlin Queen.


The fishermen estimate the rope could measure at least 500 metres and may have fallen off a long lining fishing vessel.

Darren and Martin are visiting the island to film 13 Matau fishing episodes, a complete series.

The sea excursion did not only return with the rope, the brothers are pleased with their catch of mahi mahi and tuna.
