Narrowneck 16 Dec

With their Xmas shopping finished, I met the full crew of Kermit, Baz and Doc at the ramp for 5.15. It was a mint morning with glorious conditions amid the usual banter. The fishing was good too. I was using a new slider and soon had 7 in the back. Doc was testing out new methods and was getting hea...

Re: AHB 11 Dec

Very funny story and well written, I was laughing out loud while reading it :rofl: Importantly your ok and lucky for you it wasn't boat! I used to fish around the Navy base but it's just way to risky and got sick of being tossed around by the constant wake. You should join us for a fish at Narrow Ne...

Re: NN Saturday

It was flat as. Wind picked up once I reached the shore.
Orange slider and a couple on new penny curly tail.

NN Saturday

With the Mayor being the only one of the NN Premiere League with the balls to go out this weekend I hit the ramp alone at 530am. Fellow league members were unavailable due to various lackluster lame excuses, mainly, I believe to be dragged around by there better halves Christmas shopping. Really cha...

Re: Auckland Marathon - Not again!

It was ok to start with. Got a bit choppy on the way back but I was done by 930. Marine Weather was showing 4 knots. It really picked up later on. Must of been a big tide as I was drifting pretty quickly.

Re: Auckland Marathon - Not again!

Ha ha you Egg :rofl: I thought Mitch would of told you! I went on Sat. Got seven but nothing big. Hardly anyone around after last weekends Piccadilly circus like conditions. Really must hose the yak down, It's starting to smell like an old fishing trawler :D Catch you next time. 20181027_094732.jpg

Re: NN 21/10 Train Station

Bloody poor form from that skipper. Lets hope he returned with empty fish bins. Glad your ok and we'll all need to keep an eye out in future. On a more positive note, I'm pleased to see another trophy adorn The Mayors already bulging prize cabinet. Yes that's right I took out first place in this wee...

Re: Day out Saturday NN

Congratulations on your victory Mitch. I'm surprised you did a Trip Report as in true Aussie style you were informing everyone on the beach about your catch! It was an impressive crowd that you had drawn in telling them how you are the master fisherman. Just remember what happened to Warner, Smith a...

Re: NN - 29/09 7 x 3 = Fun

Erriely quiet at the ramp without the usual whinging about my latness from Mitch. Although this week I was on time. Great to see Baz out of Hibernation and back on the water. Even better to see him being towed back to Narrowneck by a stingray. Oh dear, ping and there goes another $20 slider. :rofl: ...

Re: No good Deed

Done me like a kipper! Sounded like classic FOM to me. Hopefully they'll be some more soon and hope your recovering ok. Looks like a pretty big hole.

Re: NN 22-09

Good morning on the water and great fun watching you being towed around by the stingray. Not sure about that league table, as I said it was JD comp, which means The Mayor takes the points again :D Got me even more points with my wife. :y: Real good fishing, we're lucky to live in such a great countr...

Narrowneck Sat

As penance for my yet again lateness at the ramp Mitch volunteered me to do the report. Baz was suffering from a serious case of the sniffles so was unavailable and Doc was busy reading my new book, Catch Mayor Snapper so he was also unable to make it too. We launched on an out going tide at 6.45, c...

Narrowneck 1.9.18

Haven't been out in a while so it was great to get back on the water. Launched in the fog at 7. Luckily for me I bumped in to a fellow yakker who had gps and we headed out to the channel. The fishing was pretty hetic with orange sliders doing the damage. The fog started to clear and we headed in wit...
