Mate all are welcome and you couldn't do better than to tag along on a club day like this. You will need to be set up with an anchor etc as this best suits the style of fishing we do around the naki. Dont be shy and make yourself known, we are all keen as fishos and dont mind shaing a few tips and helping out.
Just be prepaired for dealing with the surf as this is uually the most entertaining part of the day.

Thanks for the reply Crabman. I will be there. I only paddled out on my kayak once since I bought it and went for an unplanned swim so I should provide some entertainment. :clap:

Good stuff mate. Will be a great chance for you to check out everyones setups and get some tips from the boys. Make sure you take drinking water etc as most will be on the water from 7am till 12 at a guess.
Another bonus of fishing Wai-iti is that once you're through the surf you dont need to paddle far to fish and most of the guys are happy for a fishing buddy and all keep an eye out for each other. :y:

Sorry I couldn't make it. I got called out to work. ;( It didn't make it any easier being able to see the ocean from work. Next time, I hope.
