Re: DAM Quick - any good?

Nice one. Let me know what it's like once you've used it a couple of times. Keen to compare with my work mates comments. Cheers.

Re: DAM Quick - any good?

There is no way that this combo could be made in Germany and sold here for $99. Probably the only German thing is the name. Rainbow Quite possibly, but I've been keeping an eye on this combo for a while because I knew I was going to need something extra for the yak and it's usually up around the $2...

Re: DAM Quick - any good?

My first (decent) reel that my Dad ever bought me was a DAM reel. It was basically one of the first lever drag models on the market some 15-20 years ago. And it was awesome. I loved it. It shat itself only a couple of years ago. Not sure how I got my father to spend that much money on me at that tim...

Nearly double skunked 17 and 18th Dec - NN

Much like the other Trip Report of the same name, I went out from Narrowneck on Saturday evening and threw back 3 snapper, and kept a KY. The KY was smaller than I thought when I got back to land. I guess I was just excited to catch something on this trip after a few quiet hours. Guess it'll be bait...

Anyone have a C-Tug they're not really using or want to get rid of?

Re: The one that got away

That seems a really odd shape for a lure to be bent in. i.e. 3 bends, not 1. Would have loved to see what caused it and how!

Re: Mussel Farm - Matingarah

People need to try Parore. It's actually pretty good. White flesh, much like a normal snapper.

Nice work on the fishing too.

Northland Kayak Fishing Classic - 12 & 13 November 2016

Friday night Blair and I made our way up to Whangarei for the safety briefing with lots of anticipation about what the weekend would bring. After listening to the briefing and not signing in (what was the story here? was it sign posted?) we shot up to Matauri Bay next to the Cavalli Islands and sett...

Re: WTB: Viking Profish GT

Thanks piwikiwi. I've been following most of those but I think the time has now finally come where I need to actually buy a kayak... I made a deal with another forum member that if he caught a ten pounder off his yak, and he bought one of those kick arse chilly bins (techni ice - the consumer award ...

Long-time reader, first time TR writer. Long-time boater, short time kayaker. With my old man’s Father’s day lunch cancelled for Sunday I was able to join my mate Blair for a paddle on Sunday morning. Plan was hatched to go to Matheson Bay, and with the cars pre-packed and pre-kayak loaded on Sa...

To the Site Admin's

Hiya, I was just wondering if it was possible to put the topics in any certain order? Under the 'General Kayak Fishing Topics' section I would like them in order of highest number of posts to lowest number of posts (i.e. General, then Trip Reports, then For Sale or Wanted....etc etc). All good if no...
