Re: A cautionary tale

Probably want to keep the drift chute tucked up and stored away if you are riding the waves to the beach.

On one trip I didn't disconnect the chute from the running rig and stow it away. When I turtled the chute tangled around my lower leg and nearly dragged me out to the water.

Re: Nice idea for a kayak fishing competition

Great idea! I like.

If we could somehow persuade Viking, Rob Fort and Mental to throw in one of their fine kayaks as a prize I'm in!

Hint, hint. Wink wink ;) :lol:

Re: Weather resources et al.

Good post! There are lots of websites I wasn't aware of.

I'm finding the predict wind app pretty useful. I think the Americas cup syndicates use this app.

Re: Wheeleez Kayak Trolley

Just add a further conversation. Now I have a lighter kayak ( the Kraken was a great fishing machine but heavy ) and I the C-Tug I had went with it. Is the smaller wheel Wheeleez cart ( $200ish) that much better or do I keep saving and go for the standard one at around $300? I have the Wheeleez wit...

Re: Two questions

Paddle leashed to the kayak for me. I unleash the paddle when I launch to minimize getting tangled if I fall out. PR knot to tie braid to leader. It takes time to master the technique. I find it also slides very nicely in the guides if you weave the ends of the knot with dental floss. Genie clip tie...

Re: End of 2017, Pikowai

Yeah plenty of kahawai around pukehina over the holidays. Love catching and eating that fish. Like the guys say watch that shore dump. Stow away your rods and reels if your uncertain about your re-entry ability. I turtled on re-entry from a small shore dump and wrecked all my reels and net. My k-lab...

Firth and Papa Aroha get-together

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JlquFdtVUY Going out fishing is very difficult for me to do these days and making fishing videos more so. A lazy paddle on Wednesday morning at the Firth resulted in 5 fat delicious Snapper. On the 5th of November an annual fishing event takes place in the Coromande...
