Re: Newby in Wanganui with some Newby questions

Hi Dan - Welcome to the kayak fishing community. Probably many threads on here re clothing but my recommendations are: Singlet and togs not such a smart idea if you want sun protection! Neoprene also debatable - restricting, sweaty if you overheat and hard to remove if needing to pee! Hat - wide bri...

Re: Looking for kayak trolley recommendations

Measurements are: Folding Trolley (Frame that holds kayak): 400mm - To be honest I don't think the tyres would go the distance on sealed roads! C-Tug Trolley (cradles that kayak sits on): 490mm Wheeleez Trolley (Frame that holds kayak) 430mm Our recommendation is either the CTug or Wheeleez. The CTu...

Re: New guy looking to learn

Hi Bigdan No doubt you will get plenty of suggestions as to what kayaks to get but as we tell our customers - what suits one person doesn't suit another so try before you buy. Budget of course also determines what you get but be wary of cheap with short warranties as plastic used in these will not h...

Re: Landing big fish - what do you use and why?

Personally I like a net. You can leave the fish in the water when it reaches the surface and then not having to lift it in the air prevents the hook being ripped out of mouth and loosing the fish (as DocProfit says) or causing it less harm or distress (especially if foul hooked) if releasing it. An ...

Personally I would use a trailer for any kayak I used. We have had 2 vehicles need rust taken out from around windscreens - that saltwater sure is destructive! Janet

Yes have a couple in the carport..... however they are brand new! Boat Show special still applies until Friday offering a free Ocean Kayak Frenzy for free (worth $699.00). Good luck finding a 2nd hand one - they are very new to the market so expect no-one has reason to part with them!
