Hi ther fellow kayakers

My name is Stephen although most I fish with know me as Cheater
I live Sth east of Melbourne near Westernport and that is my local happy hunting ground

I have been a kayak fisho for four years or more and started out with a Wavedance Kingfisher which was a localy made 4.1 meter craft
that has been upgraded to an OK prowler 4.3 in resent times

I get out almost every W/E for a fish and target most local species at one time or another
I know a lot of our local species are the same as you have running around NZ
although if you guys could sent some of those large Kingfish over this way I'd be pretty happy

Anyway thats my small into - I drop a few reports and stuff up if anyones interested in reading what going on this side of the ditch

The only odd shaped head in the pic is mine -- yes the larger of the 2 there was 91 cm and 8.55 Kg but not a knobby fish
