Re: meola

Well done, man.

That’s a great fish. It’s just cool that you can get a good feed from that area still.

Look forward to the next report!

Re: meola

Nice work man. I have a mate who does really well from Meola reef also. Good to see there's plenty of fish around.

Narrow Neck 03/03

Another report from the country’s busiest channel. Paddled out to an emerging sunrise at about 615. Started with a quick drift past rough rock and picked up one snapper on a softbait. Headed to buoy 13 and began the drift with the outgoing, picking up 3 more in relatively quick succession, one on a ...

Re: Tamaki Yacht Club, Auckland

Nice report.

This is also a useful site for checking out bottom contours: https://www.navionics.com/aus/

Click the Chart Viewer link. You can get an app for your phone too which I find a handy tool, especially for tracking drifts.

Re: Berleying and anchoring - how to and what not to...

I would second that - anchoring in swift current is definitely a bit hairy and I don't do it. There's not really any room for error when bringing the anchor back up and between you pulling the rope and the current side on to the kayak, you can tip out quite easily. I read somewhere that some people ...

Re: Berleying and anchoring - how to and what not to...

I think you've got the right idea already. If you're in deep water, drop the burley down to the bottom. If you're in shallow water (5m or less) you can have it dispersing from the top. Use a slip knot though so if something does grab it, it can take off. All you really have to make sure is that you ...

Re: Drift Distance

That’s awesome, guys. Thanks for the info. I think perhaps I need to do some longer drifts! DocProfit, you’re out off NN pretty much every day (maybe you took the last week off :D ) I’m picking you start at one end and go with the tide. It’s a hell paddle against that current. On the few occasions ...

Re: First go live baiting

Awesome knives. Super thick blade. Not sure if it’s what they are meant for, but they hack through bones like no ones business, and sharpen back up beautifully.

That wooden handled knife, at the top of the photo, that looks like a Japanese Chef's knife, do you know where it came from?
Yes. It came from Japan. I bought it in Kyoto and it is my favourite knife.

First go live baiting

Thought I’d give it a crack from the yak. 530 beach launch, drifted outside the bar and along the reef from the south end of Whangamata. Stacks of baitfish on the sounder every few hundred metres, all juvenile Kahawai. Nailed 3 on the first drop of the sabiki. First bait down and trolled it back tow...

Many trips lately have been with just one lure (a DIY lure that is proving pretty bloody effective) to catch livies and one livebait rig. That's it.
What species of livies are you catching on this lure?
