Re: Nn 17/10

I paddled out for an evening sesh the same day hoping for an evening bite. Haven’t fished there for quite a while. Launched probably about 530 and dragged a bibbed lure north along the reefs in about 8m. Patchy sign but no takers. Hard slog against the wind and tide but whatever. I knew the drift wa...

Re: bunch of free stuff I don't need

Sent lures yesterday. Trolling them in the shallows around watchmans island could get interesting. Just say'n :-) and, @psaywell13, I tried to PM you back bc NZ post are saying the addy you sent through doesn't receive standard mail. So if you can confirm it'll still be OK to send, I'll get the pum...

Re: bunch of free stuff I don't need

Yeah sweet. Happy to send them on to the next person once I’ve picked a couple out. Anyone who’s keen, pm me your address and first in first served I guess. Thanks, man what a generous offer. I’ll definitely get some use out of them, I regularly troll bibbed lures when on the move and it’s surprisin...

Re: Fishing rods for non fisherfolk.

I've had a couple of these and they go pretty hard for the price. Probably a fluke, but I've even caught a couple of small kingies off the rocks with them. Some places have them as combos with reels. The reels are generally terrible, but up to you. I've used them for soft baiting and bait fishing. A...

Re: Bixpys and Kayak Fishing Comps

Nah, too easy. We had a little local comp between friends a few years ago using the Warehouse kids’ set $5 rod and reels. Was bloody hard, because they had only about 25m of cheap light nylon and the reels’ drag washers were - I am not fibbing - cardboard. Oh man, I was gonna say kids rod but then ...

Re: Bixpys and Kayak Fishing Comps

@TBreezy: it's already happened this year. Potty's 3-species kayak fishing comp based at Port Jackson on the shortest day this year; 20 June and a shotgun start. About 40 or 50 entrants, and several of them had Bixpys. My son Nick and I were the only anglers without any electronics at all, and on t...

Re: Fishing reports - are they accurate?

I reckon they are accurate only to the experience of the person writing it. And every different person has a different experience so you're gonna get a different answer from everyone. I'm pretty sure that's from Bruce Duncan's report. He's a bait and burley guy and hits a lot of areas around Rangi a...

Re: Lure storage

I have one lunch-box sized sistema box with packets of SP's and lures inside. I also store two small sistema containers inside the same box - one with jigheads and the other with a selection of metal jigs and lures. I haven't had any issues with water getting in because it's never submerged. I usual...

Re: Bixpys and Kayak Fishing Comps

Your only advantage against others is your ability to catch fish. It doesn't matter what gear you have. If it hasn't happened already, I would love to see a comp where some legend shows up with a piece of shit kayak that most people here would laugh at, a bunch of "outdated" fishing gear, and just s...

Re: Doubling over braid??

I've never doubled over the braid, but I only ever use an FG knot to join braid to fluoro and it seems unnecessary to double the braid over. I don't think the knot would work as well if you did, anyway. And no, an FG knot is not difficult to tie on the yak.
