Te Puke anyone?

Hi guys.

Heading home during Easter. Is anyone keen for a fishing buddy to tag along? Perhaps around Maketu, Papamoa or even Pilot bay?

Re: Local comp no bullshit

Thanks Mitch for planning the get together. While I only had 1 keeper and a chilli bin full of Kina, it was worth getting the tips and advice from you all (too many to name!). I also hope my greenhorn questions weren't bothering anyone, although it's best to learn the hard and direct way from the ve...

Re: Local comp no bullshit

Sounds choice.

I've managed to convince a couple of cousins to tag along. One cousin is keen to show off his Titan Prowler. He says it's the only model of it's type in the country. Is this true? What time everyone meeting at Sullivans?

Thanks Destin.

I hope to follow your example, your blogs and photos are great motivation! Although the photo of the snapper doesn't look flattering they were measured at 35cm+, my biggest fish so far using soft baits.

Whole cooked Snapper recipe

I can't help but feel saddened when I see the fillets removed and the rest of the fish thrown away. Here's a delicious and easy to cook recipe that's tasty from head to tail. Give it a whirl - best served with rice. http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/19075/chinese+style+snapper" onclick="window.open(th...

Songs that make you wanna go kayak fishing.

How about a topic of songs and tunes that inspire us to go kayaking, fishing or being with nature in general. Here are some tunes that get me psyched to get out on the water. 1. Reminiscing - Little River band 2. Cool change - Little River band 3. Against the wind - Bob Seger 4. Wolf and Man - Metal...

1. Learn a new language.
2. Learn how to softbait.
3. Learn to be a better fisherman/kayaker.
4. Prove to my Mrs that buying a kayak is not a waste of money!

Hey mate.

I see you're from Lagos, Portugal? I use to work in Lagos at a bar called 3 Monkeys on Rua de freitas. Did you ever pop around there for a beer bong? I had some great fishing adventures in the Algarve.

Re: Holiday ideas please!

Oahu, Hawaii isn't too bad. This time of year it should be quiet. Maybe the Coral coast, Fiji at the Shangri La. Warm weather, good diving and fishing.

If you don't mind a 10-12hr flight - Phuket, Thailand is splendid. Sunny, warm, great food and cheap as chips.

Re: Roof racks and Kayak Rack Sets for sale

Hey mate.

Have you checked out Pick a part in Takanini? They have some great roof racks. I removed a pair of fairly new Rola rook racks and paid $14. Although it is a bugger to remove the security pins and refit onto my car, the price was worth it.
