Re: NN - Just for a change.

I believe any fish caught outside NN is invalid.

NN - Just for a change.

Well my 76 year old father finally got sick of seeing me catch my limit so often so he decided to buy a 'motoyak' - which is basically a narrow inflatable with a small outboard, and come out for a go. We got there at 5am and there was actually a bit of swell pushing some decent waves onto the beach ...

Re: Complete Yak Fishing Newby

Welcome aboard.

With that budget I would look at TradeMe.

You can pick up some good deals 2nd hand there.

Ocean Kayaks and Viking Kayaks are the 2 top brands.


Narrow Neck beach is the place to launch in that area. Drift along the edge of the main shipping channel.


Good luck :y:

Great stuff !.... must admit I haven’t fished NN for ages...the often crazy boat traffic just made it less than enjoyable !
We have fun paddling in with a full load of 7 each, as all the fizz boats zoom past us headed out to who knows where, with all that snapper right under their hulls :clap:

Re: Sorry folks another NN TR

Great redemption fish after the previous weekend's misery. Mitch took off before the birds were singing, I guess he was trying to make up for lost time from the last trip where he forgot his pfd :lol: Barry was M.I.A. - I hear he was out buying another rod - can't have too many right? Just a pity it...

Re: NN 3-2-18

Tough day for everyone, the current was brutal - we drifted at nearly 3km with chutes out.

I spent more time paddling than fishing, but I got my mandatory Hammerhead before going in.


Tuesday's weather looks good, time for some redemption!

Re: NN 27-01-18 Same old

Really was nice out there this morning, and the fishing was excellent.

I'm very happy with my new parking spot as well, tell the Mayor thanks for sharing.

Re: Bixpy Jet motors.

I'd like a bare bones kit that I could hook up to a standard lead acid battery.

I can't justify that price, I'd rather move to a pedal yak.

Re: NN - 21/01 Non starters

Don't worry I was out there. 630 start though. Back on the beach at 930 with 7, yet more points for the Mayor :y: I think Mitch was out shopping for a pair of balls. Hopefully his wife will let him out this weekend :lol: 20180121_094247.jpg Sry roll-call ended at 6am. Your points are forfeit ;)

Re: Marine Reserves

Personally I'd stay completely away.

The ocean is big, plenty of other spots to fish than a few areas marked down to try and help the fish get a break.

Saturday night we attended a 21st, and 5 bottles of my homebrew cider meant I stayed in bed Sunday morning! I'm going thismorning though , rain be damned!
:D

Good luck.

Weather is shaping up good for the end of the week at this early stage.
