Arkles bay 28/9/17

Launched at Arkles bay around 4.45pm, paddled out past the reef on the left to find some good sign in 10m over the sand. Zman new penny curly-tail did the damage on a 1/4oz jighead. 5 nice snaps and 2 johnnies inc a new PB johnny. Got busted off by a decent snapper, think it bit thru the 10lb flouro...

Re: Are we loosing the "brotherhood "??

I am all about the fishing, I bought a kayak because I was sick of only catching kahawai and small snapper off the rocks around auckland. If I could afford a decent boat I would buy one in a heartbeat. I do enjoy the buzz of catching big fish off the kayak and the fresh air and exercise. I still fin...

Made a few casts with a stickbait into the whitewater around the rock but gave up pretty quickly as I was moving backwa...

Re: Bad Back

Yeah my lower back flares up occasionally and pinches my sciatic nerve which can render me bedridden sometimes. Stretching every night and magnesium supplements seem to keep it at bay. It is important to keep good posture in the kayak and rotate your torso rather than using pure arm power when paddl...

Need help trying to fit a lowrance elite 4 to a prowler 13

Hi

I got a Lowrance elite 4 for my kayak, only proble is it looks like the transducer is too big for the scupper on my OK prowler 13. Is there another transducer I need to get? Or can I get the scupper modified?

Has anyone else come across this issue?
