Re: Floats for drift chutes

I also use a piece of pool noodle. but it is just cut around the same length as it is wide. and tied to the tag that is on the end of the parachute. seems to stay on the surface alright.

Waitawa 25/02/17

Been awhile since my last excursion due to kayak transport difficulties. Arrived at the car park around 6.30am in the morning, happy to see lots of other guys unloading their kayaks, since this was the first time taking my girlfriend out on my espri, I didn't expect to do much fishing or go very far...

Re: Heavier top water spinner/caster?

I quite like my fin nor offshore 9500, the 7500 is quite a bit lighter which I owned previously, not as fancy as other reels but simple and easy to service and stands up to a beating.

I'd like to find a good short stickbait rod for the kayak for it though.

Soft roof racks

after 7 months of having my truck out of action ;( and not having a way to get my kayak down to the beach, I took the plunge and purchased some soft roof racks from trademe.

hope to try them out this Saturday :)

Re: Missing PFD - Orere Point

My 2xl Chinook seems to scale down pretty good as it fits my teen sister, but I wish I got the 3xl for myself for when I wear a jumper underneath. Which model of icom did u get? Battery clip broken on my uniden the other week when I was out on the kaipara. Mate, I've been off the water since Feb and...

Re: VHF Radio Licence

Did the course online and got a call sign for my kayak, well worth it. Cost is pretty high for something they want you to have for safety, maybe the govt should subsidise it? Will be getting a second radio for the missus and making her do the course as summer gets closer so we can do some missions t...

When we were loading up, the big sand dredge barge broke through the fog.

Would hate to be stuck in its way
