Re: Paddle pants

I had the gul code zero salopettes from NZ sailing and although fairly comfortable and warm with the high front and back, the waterproofing was average.

Anyone fished in Rarotonga?

Me and a bunch of mates are turning 40 this year. I figured I need a holiday somewhere tropical. So I might as well do some fishing while I'm there. Does anyone have a charter they recommend?

Kina and cable bay - Nelson. Suggestions anyone?

Not quite the traditional TR. I was out in kina beach yesterday and cable bay today. I decided to leave the fishing gear in Auckland. It was agony to leave my gear behind. But decided it was best to spend quality time with family and friends. I have 3 friends who are marine scientists. They work in ...

Re: Trolling lures

I've been using the Rapala x rap for a number of years now. They're smaller lures than the Dr Evils and produce an action much like a stick bait on top of the water. I've landed heaps of KY and the odd King. I replace the trebles with 2/0 hooks. Hope this helps.

Narrow Neck - Sunday 6th

My first fishing trip of the year. Also my first time in Narrow Neck. No big snapper to report. The snapper I caught were too small and all released. There were some large schools of Kahawai near the shipping lanes. I happily landed 5 fat KY with my trolling lure. I need eyes at the back of my head ...
