Hi guys and girls, my name is Michael O'Neill and I have recently caught the fishing bug. I'm borrowing my friends Viking 440. I've just put a fish finder on the yak and bought other various things to complement my and it seems to be going really well. The spot my friend and I go to is Rogers Rd and sometimes Harrison's cut at Papamoa. I'm really new to fishing and trying to take things as slow as possible ( but not really ) and enjoy fishing, getting out and feeding my family and friends.
If anyone is out in Papamoa and doesn't mind a noob fisherman then please hit me up as my wifey (CEO, not just encourages me to go out but threatens me if I don't go and fish) enjoys fresh fish.
Well that's me and thanks for reading!!!....cheers Myk.

Welcome to the addiction. :) Enjoy the ride. Tim Taylor runs a guide and hire fishing kayak business down there. He used to do regular informal trips from local spots. NZKayaker.com ( also uses 440's amongst others ;) )
