Re: New member

Welcome aboard! Many people do well at the Kaiaua mussel farms, but I'd recommend Orere Point as a better beginners area because it's more forgiving. Manoeuvering around the mussel lines and buoys can be challenging and all the mussel ropes provide ample snags. While there are some snags at Orere th...

As long as they're the same brand. Zmans react to gulp juice and melt.

Ice fishing in Auckland...

Ok, so maybe not quite ice fishing, but it certainly felt cold enough for it. I had the day off so I headed out to Orere Point with my paddle buddy for a winter fish. According to my car's dashboard thermometer it started off at a balmy 3.5 degrees when I picked him up and descended to a tropical -2...

Re: Fishin mission

Talk to your local club - the North Shore Kayak Fishing Club.

The East Auckland Club occasionally travels up that way, but it's be a bit of a commute for you. The EAKFC mostly fishes around Orere Point and surrounding areas.

Re: Ocean Kayak - Tackle Storage Pods - What would you pay?

That's a tough question... The original UTE Box was $329, which was outside my price range at the time, but was something I aspired towards. Now they're not readily available I'd snap one up at that price. I'd think long and hard if one became available. In saying that, I'm sure others have manufact...

Rob Fort (Coromandel Kayak Adventures) or the Viking Kayaks website have most of what you need. Bits and pieces show up on the forum from time to time, if you want to wait and see what becomes available. Trade Me has a few things sometimes too. Try and buy quality first time around and it will proba...

Been busy at work lately so it's been more than a month since I got out on the water. Fortunately with the wind dropping today and a long weekend I managed to score a pass to head out. Even better my paddle buddy also managed a pass so we were fishing together for the first time in a while. We hit t...

Re: Shimano Lucanus

I try not to let it drag along the bottom - they snag on everything - even the occasional small cobbles where I fish. I keep it about a handle turn or two from the bottom. Often the closer I keep it to the bottom the better.

Re: Marlborough Sounds, Tasman - SeaClear Uploads

Use SeaClear I'm guessing. There's a few topics about it if you do a search.

I'm wondering if it's been superseded by some of the apps (like Navionics)
