It was a quiet week on the fishing front in Mercury Bay last week, but a highlight most certainly was when All Black, Jordie Barrett, reeled in an impressive 181.1kg broadbill swordfish on Wednesday, 4 May. Jordie was assisted by his brother and fellow All Black, Scott, and the crew of the vessel Fyssher.
