Re: Newbie in South Auckland

I had Garmin striker 7sv in my fishmaster elite 4, the transducer comes with a 'trolling motor mount' that I used to strap it to, a piece of 2"-ish pvc pipe, cut to fit, in the transducer well and glued in with Selley's AllClear. The cable went up the hole in the well and the head unit was mounted o...

Re: Coastguard pulls my wet cold ass out of the water

And a little un-asked advice from an old man, who has a $60 roof rack and a $60 set of cradles. I give mine the Marc N test, every time I load the yak on the car, which is to grab each of the four ends of the rack, in turn and shake. If the rack and yak does not move, in relation to the car, but the...

Re: Damage when tying kayak on roof?

I used, on my previous 'yak, a straight bar roof rack, with the 'yak upside down on it, with 4 half a jandals, where the gunwales contacted the roof rack, I used ratchet straps but would not tighten them too much. Never had a problem. My new 'yak, because of it's shape, cannot do the upside down thi...

Re: Beaut micro jigs

Orders placed now will be moved through the network without being held - meaning they may arrive before something you ordered months ago. Walsh said customers could expect new orders delivered in 1-5 days, except deliveries into and out of Auckland which may take up to two weeks. NZ Post chief mark...

Re: Beaut micro jigs

Now to head to the lakes.. Trout :)

I should add, the micro jig is 26mm long so this is smaller than you'd think.

Re: FishMaster Elite4 fishing kayak

From the trademe listing "I am 120Kg and found that with all my gear, I was a little too heavy for this kayak, so I bought a larger 'yak. But if you're 105Kg or less, this'll be ideal. Its lightweight and easy to lift onto a roof rack. " Presently there's a chap coming up on Saturday, to exchange mo...

Re: Car topping?

Re: Pacific oysters for bait

When I was a kid, Rock oysters were protected, and Pacific oysters were only found occasionally. When the oyster farming industry took off, the resultant spat, out-colonised the Rock oysters almost completely. So when eating oysters off the rocks, take a hammer and give the shell remaining on the ro...
