Re: Are we loosing the "brotherhood "??

I am all about the fishing, I bought a kayak because I was sick of only catching kahawai and small snapper off the rocks around auckland. If I could afford a decent boat I would buy one in a heartbeat. I do enjoy the buzz of catching big fish off the kayak and the fresh air and exercise. I still fin...

Made a few casts with a stickbait into the whitewater around the rock but gave up pretty quickly as I was moving backwa...

Re: Bad Back

Yeah my lower back flares up occasionally and pinches my sciatic nerve which can render me bedridden sometimes. Stretching every night and magnesium supplements seem to keep it at bay. It is important to keep good posture in the kayak and rotate your torso rather than using pure arm power when paddl...

Re: Need help trying to fit a lowrance elite 4 to a prowler 13

Cheers mate I did a search and found a few methods, it is done now. Involved a hacksaw, heatgun, half a tube of selleys all clear, and lots of bad language. It is sitting slightly prouder of the hull than I would prefer but not much more than the humminbird one it is replacing. Most importantly it i...

Need help trying to fit a lowrance elite 4 to a prowler 13

Hi

I got a Lowrance elite 4 for my kayak, only proble is it looks like the transducer is too big for the scupper on my OK prowler 13. Is there another transducer I need to get? Or can I get the scupper modified?

Has anyone else come across this issue?

Re: Sullivans Bay & Saddle Island Saturday 13.02.16

Well done mate, I launched at sullivans at about 6.45. Let heaps of 33cm fish go and kept 3. I paddled all the way to 30m mark beyond Motuora but all the fish were identical 33cm models. Saw a small hammerhead just beyond the line of birds. The berdlin wall.
