How much ice do you use in your catch bag. Does it actually cool down the whole catch like in the photo. Would the ice & your catch last say 4-6hrs on a balmy day
Nice catch :y:

Re: NN Sunday Arvo

Nice report mate, good to have the place to yourself, as it does get busy there most times

What rod & reel are you running for the sliders, line weight & range of lure weight ?
I'm a bait & burley fala, getting setup to this lure style of fishing

Re: What kayaking gloves should I get?

Opinions please

Would the heavy duty sharkskin gloves be good enough for all year round fishing.... am just thinking of the comfort level when it starts to warm up
Or is it better to go the lighter gloves over the cooler/colder months then go naked in summer (hands that is haha)

Re: East Coast Bays.

Nice report mate.
Will give that area a go this weekend if weather holds up.... actually, I thought the snapper had packed their bags around there and headed off elsewhere for winter
Is that an all year round possie ?

Will the handheld work away from the water, say, at home, wanting an up to date weather report before heading out.

Re: Land Based Fishing around Auckland Central

We used to target the wharves in the far north for JD's
Either with droppers with small live baits or better still, get your softbait set & use your paddle tail softies close in along the piles.
Should be able to do the same down here
