Fish finder how to

Hey guys,

I'm using a simple hummingbird grey scale FF. However I am new to FF and don't know if I am actually using it appropriately.

Would anyone be willing to give a run down for a rookie or share a good guide? Most of the guides I found didn't help me.

Cheers

Re: Newbie in Auckland

I'm in Papakura. There is a tackle shop in Botany called "Big Fish Bait and Tackle", or Manukau "Boat Marine" are your closest options. Both are good.

Cheers for advice. I started lighter and it felt like it was taking forever to get to the bottom so I switched lol. Too used to heavy surf caster sinkers.

Advice wanted small people

Hey guys. I'm looking at getting a kayak that my wife and kids can use along side me. My youngest is 10, wife is small 50kg and short.
I was thinking something around 2.6m?

Re: 26/1 Orere

Honestly don't think I have ever had that much fun fishing. Soft bait fishing was so rewarding, feels like something for a fish as opposed to just dropping some bait

26/1 Orere

Well, I finally went out for my very first Kayaking trip. Absolutely no idea what I was doing, never used soft-bait before, had no idea what I was doing, much fun was had! Got out in the water from the Kawakawa bay side at about 6am, spent about an hour acting like a muppet trying to figure out how ...

Re: Ali Express for fishing gear

I've bought a bit of fishing gear from aliexpress. Got some rods as cheap throw away gear while I'm re-learning. The rods are very well made and Fuji guides and reel seats. Very impressed, and they cost bugger all delivered. Have also bought reels, snap swivels, hooks, line, etc which are also very...

Re: Ali Express for fishing gear

As long as you accept that the cheap gear is basically "throw away". If it doesn't meet your expectations, you will be stuck with throwing it away, because sending it back will cost you more than the sale price. Same with parts. In my experience, I find that buying good gear locally from a reputabl...

Ali Express for fishing gear

Just getting kitted out to start on my first journey and had a question. I've read previously on this forum that with fishing gear - as most things - you get what you pay for, so what do you guys think is actually worth getting from places like alliexpress? The prices are so cheap was thinking about...

Looking for Intro Kayak

On the hunt for kayak to start my fishing adventures on. I am a fairly over 6 foot and over 100kg so don't want anything too small. Any recommendations or second hand goodies floating around would be appreciated!
