Re: Returning to the kayak, where & what to catch in Wellington?

Straight off the beach at Makara is my fav - always a Teri or two hanging around - check out sunken rock also. I'll be looking forward to getting out there once I get this work load off my shoulders! Snaps are coming back too!! Yehaaa!

Re: Gulp pack vs tub

Once you buy a pack of SBs - can't you just stick it in the tub with the other assorted SBs? there is no special fragrance, taste, per SB is there?

Re: Lowrance 7 Power Button not working

(for me at least) I see there's a beehive version on TM for $50 / provided how this works I might see if I replace the netting with some DIY No 8 wire. http://www.fishing.net.nz/fis...
