Being the more active mainland kayak fraternity, is there a calender of events over the summer autumn months?
Tuna are close by, anyone venture off into the wild blue yonder in search?
The west coast windows are a bit smaller and I don't seem to be getting my fix down here...

Thanks PC.

Im actually headed to Abel Tasman now, forecast looks good for tomorrow.
ill keep my head in the feeds for any events coming up.

Been out a few times on this coast now, looking for tuna but haven't hit any yet. Red cod and sharks mainly, need to change things up as most the guys seem to target Rig round here.
its not always full on....
