Re: A cautionary tale

After having my arse handed to me in six inches of water in small surf, I'll be adopting the idea of, hanging on to the back, to keep the 'yak straight when coming in through surf. Better wet, than having to untangle all the leads and gear and so on, if the 'yak goes bum up. It's amazing how such s...

Re: A cautionary tale

So this time I tried to avoid catching any waves, paddling between sets.. however with a wave bearing down on me and not wanting to lose any of the gear capsizing.. I decided on jumping out of the yak and grabbing hold of the rear end rigging. The wave came through and with me at the back it kept t...

Re: Online swap meet, anyone?

I have a Burnsco FF battery I am happy to trade. It hasn't even been used on the water.

Re: Kayaks and Currents - Harbour Paddlers especially.

Damn, that's scary. While nothing quite at the scale of San Francisco, I watched a kayaker paddle frantically against the ebb tide at the entrance to Whangamata harbour over the weekend to make it back inside. It took them quite a long time, including a few breaks, to go about 300 metres and they in...

Re: Anyone catching?

Been out here and there since christmas but haven't been slaying it. Lots of small stuff. Have hit up a number of new (for me) places in Coromandel, Auckland and up Leigh ways. Most trips am coming back with one or two for the table but they have all been pretty slow days. I put that down to my inex...

Re: Weather resources et al.

Whoa that earth.nullschool.net is cool. Kinda like the windy app.

I also use predict wind, and windy, both as phone apps. I sometimes use windguru for the cams.

I also have a tendency to look at trees and see how much they are rustling. Not to mention the odd flag. :D

Re: AKL Harbour Bridge 26/1

Nice catch, man!

I've had Conger sushi before, it's pretty good.
I caught one not long ago in the harbour but my mate was determined it was NOT coming on board his boat. :tmi:

And yeah, fishing at dawn is the business!

Marine Reserves

How close is too close? I have fished some spots recently with marine reserves in close proximity (with no notable fish I might add :drunk: ) and due to wind or current, drifted pretty close to the boundaries before shifting away again. It got me thinking about the etiquette surrounding this and am ...

Trip tomorrow (13/01/18)

Is anyone in the Auckland area going out tomorrow morning that wouldn't mind a tag along? I do most of my fishing by myself which is nice, but would be cool to meet some other kayakers. I don't mind traveling a bit, but if no-one's keen I'll probably hit up Leigh. I'm only a little bit weird, I prom...

Reports, intel etc

Hey guys. Do any of you follow reports or pages or social channels about certain areas and what they are fishing like? If so, what are some of the things you follow, or check regularly? Which ones tend to be better than others? Of course, there is no substitute for time on the water in a certain are...

Re: Faulty FF, or just me?

Cool, will do. Thanks.

I don’t know anyone else with a transducer that I could try it out on unfortunately.

I have emailed the place I bought it from so I guess I’ll wait to see what they say.

Looks like I’ll be fishing old school this weekend!

Faulty FF, or just me?

Hey guys. Can anyone confirm that this is a faulty unit? It's chopping and changing between depths and lagging on screen. Won't show a depth reading. It's 3 months old and I have used it maybe 4 times. It was working great to begin with. In the last month I haven't used it at all but noticed this on...
