Re: Fluoro leader for soft bait

Hi Kev Try using a simple uni knot and once tied well it will suit everything you need, IE back to back uni`s for braid to leader connection, to jig heads... keep it simple...

Re: Gulp pack vs tub

Thenormal price i can find is $29.99 a tub and $12.95 a pouch. Rebel sports often has sales though as does the w...

happily Winch's ute box drops straight in too - a really useful bit of kit, and sadly out of production now it seems, so if you have one look after it

That Bait offer sounds very good Herman.. I am not as fussy as penguins. Re activity perhaps a guided kayak tour thru the national aquarium? Weekends starting to look better... Sunday is my pick for the day.. though tomorrow may be marginal/doable at TA/Clifton too. Blair when you say an easier laun...

Also looking at going out this weekend if weather forecast stays looking goodish. Will probably aim for around TA... hopefully the ...

Re: Future booking

Hope there's any fish left for you as the Facebook New Zealand kayak fishing group are having their open invite meet there this coming weekend where 40 odd yakkers are attending. Hopefully a lot of catch and release then... now not sure if lots of fish caught over that weekend will be a good sign.....

Re: Saturday 1st April

Hi Rex well done nice to see the port producing well and a variety too. I ended up going to Te Awanga in the end, surf was up and nearly bailed but it settled shortly after arriving. Headed off and coming back in interesting but uneventful .... a bit sideways with a cockpit full of water and a wave ...
