OK guys, with a long weekend coming up, spring fishing is full swing, and with a couple of prizes left over from this years MeetUp, I've decided to run a short and sharp competition.

"Reply" to this post with a Kayak Fishing related photo and short story, and be in with a chance to win 1 of 3 $50 NZ Sailing gift vouchers.

Your photo / story should be kayak fishing related, HUMOUROUS, good natured and raise a chuckle ! :lol: :lol: :lol: ......

The winner will be judged by me (and bribes are accepted ;) ;) ) although I may decide to co-opt some additional judges if the final decisions are too difficult !

So if you are unfortunate and never seem to win the monthly fishing comp, heres your chance to excel and win at something else !

Your photo / story needs to be no older than 6 months old, and needs to include date, location and "participants" (if applicable)

Entries close at 6pm on Sunday 3rd November, so that gives everybody 2 x weekends to enter.....

Very sporting Hainesy - thought I'd better put up some reminisces to old trips that had mere fish as not even rating a mention while big Cetaceans were the target species 8)

:?: Or maybe I was the target species :sweat: :lol:



Orcas i came across at the Barrier after an encounter with a 7' Hammerhead in very remote area up near Miners cove on a solo paddle-



Rare Southern Right whale calf I tracked down off Mahurangi



Mother and calf having a quiet time



Calf frolicking like a lamb as they cruised off later on

Enjoy

Man of War Bay Sat 26th October.

Following the cancellation of the mother ship trip ;( headed over to Waiheke with Yaksolo333 for a fish and paddle. The plan was to head up the Waiheke Coast over to Shag Rock then back through the islands :rock: .
The day started with a stunning sunrise on the ferry :) .

Followed by a short drive to the launch spot

Weather looked primo the last forecast said the wind was going to swing a little :^) , it litrally went round and round clockwise

We were on to fish straight away making sure all the breeders were released

:y:

Whatever :^) as soon as you went deeper than 6m there was nothing. At one stage we were catching 30cm fish in 2m and under.

Yaksolo got a kingy :y: Too small :lol:

We headed up the coast to Thumb Point and there was nothing there :doh: , headed into the shallows loads of small snapper. With the number of huge gin palaces passing us any wonder the fish had all gone somewhere else :^) , anyone know where , all that was missing was traffic lights to slow them down.
Following a lunch stop HLD turned up to show us the new Greenland Paddle and Yaksolo duly mastered it 8) :rock: .

The wind had got up so we canned the shag rock idea after 3 gin palaces went past and i thought we were in Taranaki when the swell they put up came through.

Then I found the Yak Cave

:wasntme:


We decided to head back to the small bays where we had caught some fish but by now the gin palaces had taken over. The trip back was like walking down Queen street but dodging boats not people. Looks like they all head over to Man of War bay to drink at the winery. I have only been fishing there in the week before and this was my first and last weekend trip there.


Awesome day on the water with Yaksolo paddled some distance not as much as we wanted to, looks like another short paddle may be coming up, we are thinking of paddling to Robs meet up from Orere :rock: :rock: weather depending if anyone is interested :^) :^) .
