Re: WTB - OK 4.3 Prowler UTE box

I think there's a fair few people looking for them... While not actively looking for one, I'd seriously consider it if someone was offering me one.

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...

Orere mysteries

My brother and I went for a fish at Orere Pt on Saturday morning before the wind got up. It was the first time he'd managed since his second was born back in November. With a good feed needed we headed for the tried and true Orere Point. We launched just before 7am in what were ideal conditions - ov...

Is my paddle broken?

I bought a new paddle during the week that arrived last night. As I was oogling over the beautiful carbon fibre blades I noticed one edge of the left hand blade has a wee gap in it. It looks like the two halves of the blade haven't been joined completely. I've talked to the supplier and they're wait...

Lost: 1 Mojo

It happens to us all sometimes, I know, but I'm in serious need of some new mojo! I didn't have the best mojo to start off with but since the halcyon days of my new PB in July last year (14lbs), it's been all downhill. Usually, I've managed to scrape something together - be it a single snapper or a ...

Re: Scratches and stuff

That is a pretty good looking scratch.

There's a couple of repair suggestions here - viewtopic.php?f=7&t=21573&hilit=repair+kayak" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I make no claims as to how successful any of the options are.

Oh good thing you told me, I was going to go to Panmure. do you know where the BBQ is going to be and what time. According to the website it'll be at St Heliers beach. Normal start time is around 6:30 so I imagine about then. Best get in touch with Chairman Paul, he'll keep you in the loop. Sent fr...

Have you joined the East Auckland Kayak Fishing Club? We have regular club trips and meetings. They're great for catching up with other kayak fishers too!

Re: Legal or not?

It sounds a little suspect. Both the buyer and seller need to have a permit to sell/receive fish. You can't sell recreationally caught fish. The one exception is whitebait which is managed by DOC and can be sold (there's also no catch limits). You can report it to MPI on 0800 4 POACHER. The store sh...

Sounds like a well prepared kayak fisher and a successful rescue.

Anyone we know?
