Re: Fishing Pliers/multi tools

Everything needed either in or on the hatch. Line clippers in pfd pocket. I also carry when softbaiting and micro jigs, small extra split ring pliers, braid scissors as back up and a knife on my pfd

Re: Fishing Pliers/multi tools

I used the Catch brand pliers for a while, they lost the split ring part ( it just sort of got misshaped) Won in a spot prize some Edge brand, much nicer. Great when using kabura/slider or lucanus type things with the small assist hooks. Also releasing off jig heads whilst the fish is still in the w...

Re: Hi from Gisborne

They are in Hexton, just down the road from where R&V is held. Some debate over “durability “ easy to repair glass, but gelcoat shows the scratches , can be repainted but. There are a couple of guys I know paddling the new 555 Fisha, absolutely rave about them. They are both 6ft though, I’m not. I’m...

Re: Hi from Gisborne

Complete with rudder, four rod holders, I added a railblazer mount forward of the hatch on mine to plonk the rod into after landing fish. They have a different “ feel” but I’m too unco to ride a bicycle or skate board and are not a proficient paddler but I loved my Fisha 500, ex demo it was $2G , ne...

Re: Hi from Gisborne

Considered a Stealth? Fishability , rod storage , weight on and off the car, ease of paddling, great surf ability ( depends on model) , and glass is just plain classy :D

Re: Saving pennies for first yak

Do not overlook stealth kayaks. They are a paddlers kayak. The most comfortable seating position Ive ever sat in. Despite what sceptics think they are plenty stable enough. And if you're not convinced... Their looks alone should turn heads :wasntme: The stealth is the perfect balance between ease o...

Re: Wanted surf kayak

There was a Stealth Surfisha 470 available a while back. Don’t know where it ending up? Looked really good though. Could be a few old goat boats pop up on TradeMe?

Re: snapper

Get out on the water. Seriously, there are more ways to catch snapper than I can type. Follow Rob Forts Reel Screaming Kayaks on You Tube, and jump in with a kayak fishing club, plenty of on water advice to be had.

Re: Kayak Fishing Life Jackets

Cheap? Don't know. It needs to be the correct fit for you. You will be in it the entire time you are out on your kayak, yes? VHF, knife,whistle are needed to be attached of carried on it, so some pockets are needed. Avoid too much bulky crap in pockets , it makes self rescue difficult. High backed s...

Re: Faulty FF, or just me?

I’ve taken my 7X HOOK2 off the stealth before I sold it due to the thing showing the screen like that. Even tried it off the wharf with the transducer on a stick , no better. It’s never worked properly since the first time I used it. Marine Deals have $600 off me for nothing but an expensive box tha...

Re: Skutes

Nice work. Half the fun is in the tying. The natural materials really fluff and pulse in the water but they do lose their bulk a lot more than synthetic swf stuff. Way less buoyant than soft baits I find I need lighter heads to sink slow but then there’s not the weight for casting. The foam is a goo...

Good luck with your recovery. I had shoulder surgery last April, no paddling for me for some time yet.
