Re: Kohi Fri Dec 19

Good to see you're still getting out Stephen! I should hopefully be getting back in the water soon after a long hiatus due to kiddie number 2... I'll see you out there sometime! :y:

Softbaiting Theory Session

Hey Steven :y: Would love to go to this but I'm unfortunately in Omaha for the weekend. We need to catch up sometime soon though... After I find all of my fishing gear following the house move! Let me know if you're going to do another session as I'm desperate to see what the soft baits do when they...

Re: First Time Boat Fishing

Thanks for that nzimp :y: You're right, they can provide gear but I like using my own stuff tbh. Plus, it's an excellent opportunity to feed my TAS! :rock: If I wanted to try jigging, I take it that none of my gear would be particularly suited to that would it? So far, my plan is to use the 4000d an...

First Time Boat Fishing

Right... my fishing experience so far has been pretty much limited to a bit of surf casting and soft baiting off the kayak. Now I've been given a days charter boat on Diversty out of Gulf harbour by the better half and I need to work out if my rods and reels are up to the job or whether I should loo...

the perfect softbait rod.

Second that... I've got three K-Labs rods and love them all. I've got both 40T spin rods and the kayak overhead rod and can't rate them all highly enough :y:

Kohi Nov Tue 20th & Thu 22nd

I saw someone out this morning, not sure who though. Ah, that would have been me :-) I hit the water at 7am from Okahu and headed out to No.18 and let it drift me to No.12 with the outgoing tide. Had lots of nibbles but nothing stuck... There was some swearing involved. Despite the events in the ne...

Re: Ultra owners - Show us your lid layout

Hey Greg, Where have you stored the coils of transducer cable? I guess on top of the transducer hence the fancy white plug :) Yep :y: All coiled up in the hole, just considerably less tidy than Jason's :D It's interesting though, when I tested my FF after the install, I could hear the transducer cl...
