Re: EBOP Kayak Fishing Comp 2019

Thank you to everyone that entered our EBOP KFC comp, I think it was 80 yakkers that entered and they came from the Far North and as far south as Horowhenua. The later date has only benefited us as we had great conditions and there were over 200 fish weighed in. There was a variety of species includ...

Re: Eastern BOP Kayak Comp

Hi Jeff, Changing the comp to the winter months would be awesome. IMO the fishing is at its best out East over winter. Another idea would be to open the boundary up a bit further East which would improve launching possibilities in poorer weather. I would also like to see the maximum size limit in t...

Hey Jeff, No doubt for me that autumn/early winter is more settled weatherwise with better fishing. Doesnt mean that you wont hit an arse weekend like this one. Anywhere from april-august sounds good with back up weekend rather then harbour only if conditions dont suit. Also dont think there would ...

Eastern BOP Kayak Comp

Hi all, need some feedback from all yakkers please. Due to the often inclement weather that is adversely affecting us in Jan/Feb most years we are thinking of shifting our comp date to the middle of winter, i.e, June/July?. Certainly the fishing is better. I have been in discussion with Viking and t...
