Re: Kaipara Kayak Fishing

Where bouts are you launching from?

Fishing across the top / bottom of the tides is the best and safest....

There is quite a few guys that launch from around Tinopai but just about all anchor up and use bait simply due to,the fact of the currents which are strong and the murkiness of,the water
