This is a work in progress but worth a look, and feedback would be good too...

Feel free to suggest any other places...

Looks good.

I'd suggest the outfall pipe in the bay south of Martins could also be worth a look...

Im not the best at judgeing distances on maps . Can you give me an idea on how long it would take an overweight 40year old to paddle from martons bay to kawai island please ? :)

A good question, when the over weight 39 year old has done it I'll tell you :)

This is a wild guess but I'll say 30-40min paddle? and that's a casual paddle...

FYI: as of now I have an offer of 5.5m Fyran that can be out on the water with us if we need him for tow's etc :)

Ah... But rather than fish on top of it, it's a wise man who fishes downcurrent.

...And a wiser man who fishes upwind :lol:

I believe! And you're not alone, and with the Christmas calories only 3 1/2 months away...I'm fearful my Godlike figure will turn from Zeus into Buddha :lol:

EDIT: In fact, to be honest, make that from Buddha into Jabba the Hut :oops:
