You don't fillet them straight away?

Do you cook them whole?

NN 09/06/17

Sneaky Friday Fish :lol: Morning was slow, spent most of my time paddling around the various markers and only got a few just legals. Then I decided to go for a paddle out to the lighthouse and got a couple of decent ones. Awesome day - the weather was spot on, and only one ass-hat who motored past m...

Found this piece of 'art' random people have been making with junk washed up in this tiny bay below a cliff that you can only get to by boat/kayak.

Sweet.

Reload paddle holder.

The paddle holder on the Viking Reload is on the left hand side. That wouldn't be a problem except the running rig is on that side too, and I find it a pain unhooking my paddle and getting the leash tangled up when I'm trying to haul anchor. (One of the most dangerous times if there is strong wind/c...

Re: Glass and Rocky Beaches

I had a Stealth before I got a Reload. I sold it as I was constantly worried about damaging the gel coat. Also its a lot more work mounting thinks like running rigs and ff to them. Lastly, they arent as stable as the Reload, being narrower. They are really more of a hybrid crusier/fisher IMO. If som...

Re: A dent in my Waka !

I store my reload on a c-tug, under the deck, 24/7 for easy handling.

Are you guys really tightening the straps up big time or something?

NN still producing 01/06/17

Screw work - went for a fish at NN this morning as there was little wind forecast. 6:30am launch on a foggy morning. I anchored about 50m outside marker #6 to the sound of a very loud fog horn approaching my way. Suddenly a bright orange pilot boat came roaring out of the dark right up next to me ki...

Re: Kennedy Bay 27.05

I sold both my softbait set ups and now have 2x Okuma Komodo slow jigs. At NN I usually find it tough to get both in the water at the same time as I get a holder strike on the 1st one before I can set the 2nd. On Sunday I must have caught 25 undersized snapper before I got a good feed to take home. ...

Re: Blue Mako F40 Profish vs Cobra Marauder

If you're serious about it you have 2 options - Viking or Ocean Kayak.

Check Trade Me for:

Viking P400, 440, GT or Reload.

Ocean Kayak Prowler or the newer Trident.

Re: Reload vs P400

Could always get the P400 and sell it 'as new', then use that $ to get a reload :clap: Maybe ask around here if someone wants a discounted new P400 and get them the colour etc they want. P.S. I have a reload - it's not just the speed difference, it's the removable pod with integrated Fishfinder that...
