Re: Newby in Wanganui with some Newby questions

I have these really cheap cycling pants off ebay or AliExpress that I wear under shorts in summer. Not gonna help you find a wife while fishing, but perfect for sun protection. And they were cheap enough that I didn't care cutting a hole in the front (covered by the shorts of course) to do my busine...

If you really want to make life simple, ditch bait fishing altogether, it's just not necessary, but each to their own.
Single best thing I ever did in fishing. Everything else you may try to simplify pales in comparison!! Go softbait, it's just better.

Not a bad result in the end Dirk?
Yeah, I'm happy with that. Seriously looking forward to the boat and picking up a new Mercury 30hp tomorrow. New way of fishing for me to look forward to.

Re: Got me a trailer

Finally HLD,

I can't reverse with mine yet, but man, so much easier! Especially as you say, that final lift at the end of a long day of fishing. I just have to rest my kayak's nose on the support bars and it gentle slides onto the trailer.
Plus, wonderfully convenient for storage.

Re: FS Old Town Predator XL With Outboard Mount

That's pretty sad... Zero interest on TM

I guess it's a pretty specialized setup that works well for me, but not that common a requirement.

Time's come for me to sell my most loved kayak to date. Old Town Predator XL with outboard mount and WITHOUT the minn kota electric motor. For the record, the outboard works much better than the electric motor that came with the kayak and having to cart a massive 30kgs battery around and still runni...

Re: Braid snapping

Thanks gents, I regularly land legal kingfish and big snapper on 10lb braid in open water. That's what I wanted to hear, then this line was definitely damaged. I let off a LOT of line and it still broke easily deep into the spool, which is surprising. I don't buy no-name brands for braid (I do for o...

Braid snapping

So yesterday on the water I lost a fish as the line snapped.as soon as it started running. Then after tying a jighead directly to the braid as I had no leader with me, I wrapped the line around my fingers to test the knot as usual and the line snapped just before the knot, not the knot itself. Live,...

Re: AHB 4 October

As I was reading, I thought "oh well that a good plan, I can hang an eel next to the kayak if I ever catch one, sounds like you don't need to worry about the blood attracting sharks". But then...guess I won't be doing that then. Yes, I got a camera too and even got an extended battery which means I ...

Re: Live bait solutions

I bought an aerator from MarineDeals and it lasted all of one trip. Next trip insides were rusted and a no-go. Granted, they'll last longer if you care for them better, but my other gear seem to last okay while receiving the same amount of (or lack of) care. I have a Predator XL, which is very simil...
