Re: 8 Months Later

Thanks peeps, now I'm keen to get out more often.

If those fish look a little pale, it's only because they've been scaled. I like fillets with the skin on.

I know, right! Getting sick has made me a wimp. Turns out I'm not bulletproof after all, so not taking so many risks anymore.

8 Months Later

Last time I went fishing was 15th of December, can't believe it... There was a time when I used to go fishing twice per week with only Destin and a few others fishing more often than me. What happened this year? Divorce (separation) and being sick. Anyway, I took the day off and this morning I final...

Re: Yummy/Awful uncommon fish

Old thread, but interesting none the less.

Not a fish, but as others have mentioned stuff other than fish, my all time favorite is Abalone (Pāua) and alikreukel (Giant Periwinkle, don't think you find them in NZ). Best meat on the planet in my opinion!!

Re: Introducing my new battleship old town PDL

Apparently the PDL beats even the MK with speed. Was happily cruising 7kph with no efforts. Pedaling at max speed took me up to 10kph!! It's quite a quiet prop too so stealth definitely a big plus! MK's got nothing on me!! Got up to 13kph with nowhere near to full throttle, but I don't feel very co...

Re: Introducing my new battleship old town PDL

I'm jealous!!

While I have basically the same kayak, just with a petrol motor on it (Predator XL), I think there's some major advantages of stealth and ease of moving short distances with the PDL. And seems like the PDL is a dolphin magnet!

Enjoy it mate.

Re: Thursday AHB

I feel your pain man, was always immune to cold water up until 10 years ago. Always got some stares from other divers because I scuba dived in shorts and a t-shirt (just to avoid nipple rash from the BCD) when others would complain about the cold in their 5mm websuits, most of them even wearing hood...

Re: For the love of fish

Man that looks delicious. I donno... I punch chefs who put that size helping on my table and expect me to pay for it! Looks good, but I don't eat with my eyes. And considering that I can sniff that size helping up without blinking, I don't eat with my nose either! Just kidding Esquire, it looks del...

Re: Fishing Kayak Newbie~ Is this a good fishing kayak?

Not being a Kiwi myself, I don't feel quite as strongly about "must be made in NZ" as a lot of others on here do. HOWEVER, it is generally true that you get what you paid for and the question is, do you really want to be out there on the water with your life dependent on some lower quality replica? ...
