Re: The fishing in HB over the last few months

No doubt you're an accomplished kayak fisho now :y:

Also wondering the identification of stripy fish?

Re: phone keys storage

The small food storage boxes with FOUR clips (i.e. not Sistema) work well too.

Re: Fishing Pliers/multi tools

Funny thing is the big old girls can usually be grabbed by the tail without too much drama and are generally well behaved. It's the feisty 45cm pannies that spike me every time :D

I can't believe how damn cheap that is for what is effectively a copy of the Prowler Ultra 4.3
My thoughts too. Be interesting to hear if it's any good.

Nice one :y: Big snapper can be an pain in the arse if you don't want to catch them though. Northland problems!

Re: Tamaki Yacht Club – 22nd September

Nice trip report :y: After many hours of trolling lures for kingfish from kayaks and other vessels, I've come to the conclusion that I can't quite paddle fast enough to get the kingies interested in Rapala-type lures. Happy to hear different opinions though.

we are probably in for the shittiest, changeable month of the calendar.
Same here, despite the higher water temperatures. I hate the spring winds (and winter of course). Having said that, fish are always biting in Northland.

Re: Waipu Cove

Thanks. Love Bream Bay once the water hots up! Last summer, I tried to catch snapper on as many different types of lure as possible in that area. They were smashing everything including trolled hard body lures and stick baits :y:

How'd you go Fishfood? Are the fish in the sandy shallows already?

Re: Forecast apps?

I use SwellMap as a starting point, then cross check with Windy, especially if it's a bit borderline. Have to say that Windy is generally more accurate.

Re: FF/GPS Combos

Good question. My Humminbird 597 is hanging on despite a few close calls. Love that unit. If you find a model where the electrical connectors are integrated in to the mount, please share. I think Humminbird really missed a trick by scrapping that design.
