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...

Re: Kayak trolleys

Wheeleez for me too.

I think the best "trolley"of all is a 4WD. I get envious when I see a 4WD park right up to the edge of the water and unload their kayak.

Cold/Hot smoked snapper

It's very difficult to find a cold smoked snapper recipe on the net and I can understand why. Snapper is such a delicate textured fish that it can be overcooked. A workmate caught 2 good Snapper over the weekend and wanted me to smoke it for him. So here's my 2 cents into the procedure of smoking Sn...

+2

I won't be purchasing another NRS because I have the same issues. I've also found out that the jacket I currently been using the last 2 years is not sufficient for my weight.

Re: Have you ever break 24T from K-labs

I haven't break my 24T yet and I probably won't because it's sitting in the rod holder most of the time. I've converted to the very light K-Labs Micro jigging spin rod 2-4 kg. Combine that with a 2500 reel and 8lb braid it's a lot of curve bending fun! It had a jolly good rogering at the Rob Fort ge...

Re: Is this salt suitable for curing and brining?

What do guys think? I usually like buying in bulk to reduce costs in the long run. Is this suitable for curing meats and fish. Cheers :y: Schecter best to use 'plain sea salt'. Too many other things in that one . You can buy 25kilos of coarse sea salt for beggar all. This is what I use to make baco...

Re: Battered and Fried

Marco Pierre white does a mean fish batter. You could YouTube his recipe. Although he adds vinegar to his fish at the end which seems strange me.

Re: Matapouri goes off...

No dredge required. A good wetsuit, flippers and weight belt was needed. I also had to kiss deep within my uncle's ass to get him to take me to his spot :puke: He's a bloody hua :lol:

I will be selling my gear soon. I've gained a few kilos the last couple years and will need to upgrade.
