Re: New Member, Northland Based

Hey Trale, welcome along.

As summer rolls around, there's plenty of yaks out on the water, should easily find someone down your way who can introduce you to the little quirks, huge advantages (and some serious entertainment) that yakfishing brings.

Re: Hello everyone!!

Welcome to the other side of the pond. Just in time for the (relatively) shark-free spring frenzy.

Where are you based in GodZone at the moment?

Re: Faithful steed?

The beauty of our steeds is they don't suffer from mange (I'm not a fan of rag and string boats, but this one saddens me every time I paddle past. Suspect owner is deceased)

Re: Faithful steed?

That storm paddle looks to have some Aluetian lines to it down the spline of the blade..?? Looks like it, but it's the laminate. It does have a high spine coming off the loom though - it's my 'heavy duty' paddle, much as you have light touring paddles and more solid white water blades. Unfortunatel...

Interesting shot? Is the water curling on the sides? Very cool!

Re: Faithful steed?

Mine isn't so much of a steed...more of a pit pony crossed with donkey. May not be sleek, in fact short, fat and stubby, but she gets me home and keeps up happily with aloof sea kayakers in their 'thoroughbreds' - even though I'm waving a bit of whittled tree branch as a paddle. 8)

Re: So where are the fish biting in the Northland?

I've been adequately fed by smaller schools in 15-20m depth around the shallow foul - patchy schools, but fruitful if you find them.

Sorted: Uniden Voyager clip wanted

I don't suppose anyone has a spare or no longer needed 'belt clip' for a Uniden Voyager kicking around?

Thanks

Some nice condition Snaps in the Bay recently, getting that lovely winter 'grease' on the knife when filleting. :y:

Re: Fish Finder Preservation

You can pick up a Rob Fort FF cover for $40-$50 depending on the size of the head unit.
I frequently get back after a splashy ride and the finder has stayed dry inside - biggest thing is it takes the all the pressure out of the wave impact.

Re: Help struggling getting the Kayak to the water

No doubt the Wheeleez carts glide effortlessly over sand, but you do pay a premium for that luxury. Guy I occasionally fish with has a Hulkin' Hobie, and it's as if the damn thing just follows behind him up the dunes like a loyal dog. Me, I'm heaving and swearing with 30kg on a C-Tug.

Re: Need Another Tub

Have a look at the Phoenix Hornet. I have a dodgy wing (damn near useless some days) and have no issues throwing the Hornet around. Does a respectable 4kts long-term cruising (for me) and often do 20+km days. Reasonably dry for me at [cough] 92kg - sounds like you won't even get your heels wet. Was ...

Re: Greenland Paddle

Pack the fishing gear when you come up - I might turn up at the water with one yak too many, BYO paddle though ;)
