Third time's a charm

I had to travel down to Whitianga for work today, so naturally I took my kayak for the ride. My parent's have a place at Simpson's Beach/Wharekaho, so I traveled down last night so I'd have time to squeeze in a quick fish this morning. I made a plan to target a kingfish after seeing several videos o...

Re: Trident 4.3 and roof racks. Advice needed.

I carry my Ultra 4.3 face down on the prorack bars. It's not ideal, but it does the job.

Re: Whats a good Jig Head size

I use a Lucanus or Slider on my 'other' rod. Picks up a reasonable number of fish just sitting in the holder just above the bottom. I use the Ocean Angler Lightbulbs in 1/4 or 3/8 oz weights

Re: How close is too close to fish with your mates?

If I can hit ya with frozen paintballs ya too close......! I recon if ya mates it's not an issue. Dipping deep into the archives there, Pete! Personally, as long as I'm not hitting you with my cast, you're probably fine. I fish a lot with my brother. We're normally in yelling distance of each other.

Re: Cheap Knife Sharpening Guide

I have got some sort of fancy knife sharpening tool that's supposed to hold the blade just right, but I've never used it. I take my knives to the Mad Butcher where they do free knife sharpening. Just drop them off and pick them up a few days later.

Re: Orere mysteries

Were you using the same type of leader and jig head? Jig head weights and lighter fluorocarbon have made big differences to me before. At Rangiputa and the Barrier, I have changed slow sessions to good sessions by making my leader a lot lighter. I guess water clarity was very high there, so the lig...
