Re: NN The Mayor returns.

Good work for remembering the marathon!

I'm sure we can make up for it over the coming Labour weekend... the fish will all just be 100-200 grams heavier...

Re: Tamaki Yacht Club – 13th October

Nice one Uncle Mole - don't forget that the Auckland Marathon is on this Sunday the 20th, so access to Okahu Bay might be a bit difficult.

Good luck! You live in the right neighbourhood for the fish, although it's never too far in Auckland!

Re: Narrowneck Sat 23rd March

Thanks for the posts guys, obviously i still have a bit to learn about catching these fish!! The fog was an interesting one, none on the drive there, just sort of drifted in after 6am... Luke, can you give me a run down on the method to get your fish looking so good, and if you use ice? They look gu...

Narrowneck Sat 23rd March

Started off at 6 a.m. it was a beautiful day very little wind and some fog coming off the land onto the water. Paddled out towards the number 7 bouy. Quite a few boats about. Started the drift towards the city not much going on. Great full moon which was really bright didn't even need a torch. Finis...

Re: Tamaki Yacht Club, Auckland

Nice report Uncle Mole. Thanks for the tips on the websites - i've been using the fishing.net.nz website bite times for my "what does the bottom look like" marine maps but it's a bit tricky to use. It does have the tides, sunrise and moon as well as fishing quality. https://www.fishing.net.nz/fishin...

Okahu Bay - 10.02

Got to the ramp at 5, sad to say the toilets there don't open till later, but the ones at the beach are open all night... also not sure about parking charges - is my kayak a boat?? Headed off about 6am, was very quiet with not many boats around. Got a couple of little 25cm early on which went back, ...

Re: 26/1 Orere

Good work! There is hope for us beginners!! Were you using jigheads for the soft baits - what weight? And what types of soft bait? I've tried a green sparkly soft bait on 1/3 oz heads. Get bites but no takers... i think i need a heavier jig head and brighter colours... I caught my first snapper on a...

Riverhead Tavern Adventure - from Island Bay Road

Not too much fishing in this one, but will be of interest to those who might want to have a day off fishing!! There are fish mentioned though!! Friday 25th Jan took the day off for a bit of a mission to Riverhead. Wanted to check out the Island Bay Road boatramp so launched from there. Realised a co...

Re: NN Saturday

Nice! I went out as well from Narrow Neck, but just beginning and have an average double kayak from ContainerDoor which is a bit of a whale! I suspect once I get the courage to head over the channel then things will improve! Went about 1.2km out this time, glad I headed for home around the 8am mark ...
