Re: Wet suits

Just a heads up. Wetsuits aren’t great on a kayak. They’re designed to keep you warm under water, not above. Everyone’s needs are different when it comes to thermal protection. Most people seem to wear Sharkskin or similar, or dry pants/top with an insulating later underneath when it’s cold. Summer ...

Re: Kayak fishing for trout in Rotorua

Rob Fort has done some great videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGXI0FuC7kk

Personally, I would want a fish finder if I was going to try this.

Re: New guy looking to learn

Welcome. I would agree with the above, kayak choice is somewhat personal. Where in NZ are you? A location would help us give fishing advice. There's usually someone with local knowledge.

Fish species/techniques shouldn't be too different from what you know already, so you'll be straight in to it! :y:

Re: Man drowns near Whangarei after falling out of kayak

I doubt it's Northland/Whangarei-specific, but people underestimate the ocean. Maybe it's worse up here because one moment in can look like Fiji, the next like Scotland. The "winterless north" bollocks doesn't help either. Water temperature is currently 15 degrees. After an hour or two in the water ...

Re: Coastguard App.

I downloaded the new app when it first came out a month or two ago. Messy and glitchy. Deleted it. Hopefully better now.

Faithful steed?

I think they are more like women, the hot looking slim ones get the blood boiling, but will dump you at a moment’s notice. Sometimes you’re better off with the steady fat arse [emoji3]

Re: Kohi - Monday August 27 (video added)

Bloody awesome video, next level! Love the drone footage.

Wife, here's the fish, can you fillet them please, oh and here's my memory card. A nice edit with music would be good. I'm off for a beer, and then maybe a snooze :rofl:

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

I'm finding fish in deep water, 40 metres plus. Can't say there aren't fish in shallower, just telling you what I know. For a kayaker, Tutukaka is easy access to deep water, but you might have to search around a bit for the fish. If you don't find them, there is always the wash. Others do well wash ...

Yep, I've had three separate dive trips in the Perth area cancelled due to wind. I was visiting for other reasons, but still annoying!

Another awesome trip report :y:

We're still dithering about a move to Perth. I think I said that 3 years ago!
