Re: Carbontex washers

The Carbontex drag washer upgrade is a pleasing performance boost to ones arsenal for relatively little cost . The idea of felt washers bunching on a big fish is a nightmare . Also very highly rate the Alan Tani website , great info especially the service break downs

Is tackle and a kayak provided on these trips ? I wouldn't mind popping over from Aussieland at some stage to take part in one of these trips

Re: Big swell, hard fishing, some good fish, and good times!

Nice write up Jason . You guys are lucky there the launches seem quite Calm so a surf launch must have added some interest .

Re: Plastic or Not?

I'll keep my answer fishing related . Glass . Short answer for everyday yak. Speed - Lures that don't catch fish off plastic come alive at higher speeds and catch . Baits swim better trolled and catch more fish because of a better action due to more speed. Paddling - easier to cover more ground , th...

Re: Pacific Warriors - No Season 2 !!

Yeah I agree with Downtown . But I've also realised the modern reality show ironically is no longer reality . We show big surf , and then the kayaks launching so you'll assume they launched through the surf when the really launched in calm water , we show some footage of sharks then some footage of ...

Re: Kage vs Gaff

Kage is the rage , because of that tv show . The same scenario unfolding here . How they get a massive tuna aboard with merely a kage I have no idea . I find the hook gaff great. Especially for controlling the head of something with teeth , and also for pulling fish up that are heavy . It's a tv sho...
