Re: Auckland Marathon - Not again!

How was the wind?

Windy said 22km ish which usually means I spend more time paddling back up for a drift than actually fishing - thus I flagged it for Sunday :(

Auckland Marathon - Not again!

Yesterday was too windy for NN, so I decide to try for Sunday. I head out about 5:15am in unusually heavy traffic. As I get closer to NN I see police cars, flashing lights, people standing around - still the penny doesn't drop, I just think there has been an accident. Then I remember the same shit h...

NN 21/10 Train Station

All Aboard! 6am at the ramp and it was the busiest I've ever seen Narrow Neck; boats and kayaks everywhere. Mitch and I launched and headed straight out in perfect conditions - light winds and overcast. The next 2 hours proved very frustrating as boat after boat roared by at full pace, I couldn't ge...

Re: NN 7.10

Well done!

Half the fun is trying all different baits, lures, rods, reels, lines, etc and seeing what works best for you.

Re: Minimum Requirements Handheld VHF

I couldn't find a VHF small enough to fit on my PFD without being a hassle. I also 99% fish close to shore. So I just got a standard VHF which I put in my reload tackle pod, and carry a cheap smart phone on my PFD (in a water proof bag), which is much smaller and lighter than any VHF. You can pick u...

Was a cracker of a morning!

Nailed a nice 11lb fatty on the Glowbite. Could be the new secret weapon.

NN - 04/10 Weekday Wonderland

So I had a job cancelation for Thursday, making the workload a little light - and so was the wind forecast. You know what that means... Lovely overcast day with nobody around. Perfect drift along the edge of the buoys without even needing the cute. Tried a new slider with a flashing light in the hea...

NN - 29/09 7 x 3 = Fun

Met Barry and The Mayor at the ramp at 5:45am as arranged; however they were unpacked and ready to go, so took off ahead of me. No worries, they need a head start on me anyway :lol: Mitch was down the line at some cult meeting for ex-Aussies (less said the better). Didn't matter where you drifted th...

Re: NN 22-09

Lovely stuff!

I couldn't do 3x in 7 days, body was worn out ;(

I think I'm shitting pure snapper these days, it's all I'm eating.


I hope you made a good inspection of the mayor's catch so he doesn't 'accidentally' post the wrong photo ;)

NN 20/09 - PB Smashed

Well I asked the boss if I could take the day off and go fishing. He said fine, as long as I catch him a good feed. Mitch was busy on his 'The power of hugs and cuddles" course, so I paddled out at 6am alone. To say the fishing was on fire is like saying lava is hot. I threw back 15 or so snapper in...

NN - 16/09 Easy 7

Launched at gentlemen's hours around 6:15am after Mitch finished his cig and coffee. The Mayor was nowhere to be seen after last weeks controversy in which he failed to show his fish at the beach, and rumors abound that he posted an old photo of his 7. For shame sir! :D Barry oh Barry.... wherefore ...
