Re: Waipu Cove

... some times you might have to wait a day or two for the surf to die down. That's a long time to be sitting outside the breakers waiting to come back in... :lol: Remember this story..... waiting for the breakers on this occasion might have been more sensible ! https://www.kayakfishingnz.com/forum...

Re: Waipu Cove

Used to spend a lot of time at Waipu and always just launched straight off the beach. Although in saying that, some times you might have o wait a day or two for the surf to die down..... other times it could be like a mill pond

Re: Hello

Welcome aboard...... over the years I’ve done a lot of yak fishing out of Waipu and into Bream Bay with some great fish caught....unfortunately I haven’t fished there for a couple of years not... Winter isn’t a great time but it does pick up from around Labour Weekend especially before the long line...

It’s been a while since I’ve been out that way, but I found it was a pretty common occurrence... I even tried calling them up on the VHF on more than one occasion but never got a response...

I always find the BCF stores are good place to look around... the FCO stores that we used to have here in NZ were modelled on them... they’re all over the place .

Re: Kaipara Kayak Fishing

Where bouts are you launching from?

Fishing across the top / bottom of the tides is the best and safest....

Still around and keeping an eye on everyone !

Following the wrist reconstruction I still haven’t paddled yet...
