Re: Kohi point 14/7/20

Was my first time giving them a shot.
Have a mate who swears by them so gave it a go, and sure enough my first drop and it got picked up fast, I used it kind of like a SB crossed with a slow jig. Seemed to work and will definitely be getting a couple more to try next time.

Kohi point 14/7/20

After having not been on the water since pre lockdown, some renovations complete I received the all clear from the wife.... So in the rain I did the drive from Rotorua to whakatane. Altho not overly windy there was a bit of cross chop which made the fishing uncomfortable. First flick out with the tu...

Port Charles and First Kingi

I'll keep this as brief as possible as there was a lot of fishing done over my 6 day trip to Port Charles. Needless to say the fishing and scenery where phenomenal! Hitting up the muscle farm there always produced a feed for dinner altho the little ones chewed thru a lot of Gulps. Trevis and Snaps a...

Re: Selling Abu '09 Garcia 802 Cardinal Softbait reel

Anyone have one of the above reels for parts?
Gearing in mine is still going strong however I've lost the bottom silver cover bit.
And with this missing won't take long for the reel to take stuff onboard.
I'm reluctant to get a new reel as this old faithful has done me proud on many occasions.

Re: Port Charles area

Cheers I appreciate that, have been told the northern point of Lion Rock is a good kingi area, and I guess I can't go wrong with the muscle farm for a feed, Gonna have a blast prospecting and giving a slider my first try.

Heading off on Wednesday so no doubt will share my ventures on my return.

Re: Cheapest good polarised sunnies - got any good sources please?

I got some Kingsevens from Ali. Hands down just as good as my old DDs. At a fraction of the price. 8) Thanks. If they float can you post a link to the exact model? Ta No the ones I got don't float, I just use a floating strap. Here's the link to their Ali page tho. https://m.aliexpress.com/store/v3...

Re: 11/01 - Army Bay

Yea, I should just take the plunge and give one a go, softies just never seem to fail me so have been a bit reluctant to try something new.
