Re: Fish Finder Preservation

Lanocote smeared on the rear socket and plugs. This is where most fishfinders fail. Also rinse the fishfinder off after use with fresh water and store in the hotwater cupboard.

Re: Targeting John Dory

I caught 3 the other day off Papamoa. Your chances increase if you are over foul, are stationary or very slow drift, have a livie on the bottom. I got 2 on gulp brown colour swimmimg mullet and one on a livie. I get a big buzz catching them as they can be hard to get and taste so damn good.

Re: Gulp pack vs tub

By memory I think there are 17 jerk shads in a tub, the tubs are convenient and I tend to have a whole range of different SB in a tub... I scored 30 tubs of Nuclear chicken 3" Gulp minnow grubs which had 30 baits per tub cost $4.50USD, but that avenue has been shut closed on overseas orders now ......

Re: Are we loosing the "brotherhood "??

Theres definitely an over the top factor with gear and videoing etc. I remember Rainbow fishing out of a Frenzy and killing it. I started on some embarrassingly small kayaks with a sack and a rod but still did ok. Newbies are been told to go straight to a Reload now as if budget doesnt matter and no...

Re: WHATUWHIWHI KAYAK OPEN DAY

Always a shame when egos and brands take over a hobby, Ive seen it with all of my other hobbies too. Once someone is sponsored or has a business interest, the game changes. Its just how we humans are programmed I guess.
Good on you Kerry for staying true to your values.

Do you cook them whole?
The fillets set better if you leave them chilled for a few hours. Easier to fillet then.

but anything glass is repairable, unlike plastic once it wears or holes it's throw away time.

plastic welding does a good job of repairing a plastic yak.

Re: Disposing of fish carcass at sea

I used to bring my catch home then fillet and take the leftovers back down to the beach but it seems now that upsets people walking their dogs as the dogs scavenge. Have any of you got thoughts on that ? Used to put them in the wifes vege garden but the bones seemed to take ages to break down.
