Heading to Nelson - March 2019.

What's the fishing like? I won't be able to take my yak with me but hope to get on a charter for a day trip.

Also are there any good dive spots around?

Thanks :)

Re: So where are the fish biting in the Northland?

I wasn't too keen to get out as the swell and wind wasn't good. But took my daughter out for a fish in the tutukaka wharf and she caught her first fish.

I used my daughter's rod afterwards and caught something big but the line snapped :swear:

Re: So where are the fish biting in the Northland?

Mean. Just my luck that the forecast is turning to crap this weekend. Perhaps I'll have to fish off the rocks.

So where are the fish biting in the Northland?

Hi guys.

I'm doing my annual trip up North to see the whanau. I'll be staying in Tikipunga. Hope the weather will be settled. Where are fishing biting? The last 2 trips to Matapouri have been fruitless but would be keen to check elsewhere.

Any tips anyone?

Cheers.

Re: Wanted: Cobra VHF belt clip

Hi.

Does anyone have a Carbon fibre paddle that they want to sell? They're not cheap, thought I'll ask on the forum first.

Hope you guys aren’t freezing your arses off.
It’s another day in paradise in Samoa. Fishing isn’t flash but eating heaps of raw fish, tuna sashimi and drinking heaps of cocktails.

Re: Introducing my new battleship old town PDL

I like the idea of being able to pedal slowly to hold yourself on sign, and dropping jigs etc. Also being able to safely fish in close to cliff faces while casting softies. And my elbow is munted from too much table tennis... What are you waiting for?!? SUPshed in orewa agreed to sell a demo model ...

Re: Trailers

Hi - I am considering getting a trailer for my kayak, for a variety of reasons. Any recommendations? And are there any out there that can double as a general purpose trailer too, while also being able to tow a kayak? If there are - this would be easier to get sign off on from my wife.... Thanks.
