Re: Narrowneck 19.1

Good stuff :y:

Barry and I launched from Army Bay and drifted around the Tiri channel.

It was pretty slow out there, no one looked like they were getting much.

Ended with 3.

Those heavy sliders work better for sure.

Re: Looking for Intro Kayak

If you're on a tight budget and just getting into the sport, I can recommend an Ocean Kayak Scrambler.

That was my first kayak and I luved it.

160kg max carry weight, and you can pick them up on Trade Me for $400-$600.

Re: NN 02-19 1st fish of the year!

I never scale or gut, I go straight home and fillet them. Then I dig a hole in the backyard and bury the frames.

I must have some seriously fertile soil by now :)

NN 02-19 1st fish of the year!

Mitch the Mayor and myself decided to head out to the local for 2019's first fish.

The weather wasn't the best but the fishing was decent.

I think at one point I saw the endangered "DEDANT" floating around Rough Rock. I feel very lucky ;)

Fish for another week :D

Re: Narrowneck 16 Dec

Twas a glorious morning for sure, even the boat traffic wasn't too bad by NN standards.

However you forgot to show that your fish bag was empty before launching, thus all 7 fish are void.

Better luck next time.

Re: 400 vs Reload

Reload is a bit longer and hence a little faster. Main difference however is the removable tackle pod which is awesome. Reload is going to be heavier and more of a mission to load/unload depending on your setup. If you can grab a cheap reload on TradeMe, and the extra weight & length isn't going to ...

Re: Drift Distance

I'm a lazy drifter, I'll often just do one big drift for 3 hours, then paddle home.

If I find a good spot I'll do multiple drifts over it however.

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...
