Whangamata 21/04

Another family trip to Whangamata, another dawnie beach launch. Paddled out in almost darkness and headed to my usual area. A mate had given me some skutes he’d tied so I had one of those on a the “heavy” setup (10lb) and a paddle tail on the light. Mostly fishing around reef in about 5-8m so even t...

Re: Tamaki Yacht Club 19th April

Dude, that’s a decent paddle. Well done on the fish. I’ve paddled from St Heliers to Rangi Channel and back before, it’s a commitment. A guy called Destin on here does it too. Mate, you gotta take snacks and water! Or cut up some sashimi! Cool that you got to give the new gear a good test, though an...

Re: Whangaparaoa 14/04

Ha! Nicely done! That’s a big boye too!

Cool that you were trolling an inchiku. Might as well give kaburas and whatever else a go. A banana I reckon. It can’t fail :D

Re: Whangaparaoa 14/04

Man, it really had the reel going eh :D It was one of those situations where fishing from a kayak really comes into its own, and you can use the kayak to play the fish. There's no doubt if I was at anchor I would've been busted off trying to drag it to me, rather than have it tow me and being able t...

Re: Whangaparaoa 14/04

One of those Dr. Evil lures could be worth a nudge at NN. There’s a bit of depth there once you get out a bit.

Cool man, have a good one! I’m sure you’ll do well as usual!

Re: Whangaparaoa 14/04

Good stuff. Never had any luck with towing lures, maybe I paddle too slow :0 Thanks, man. If there's kahawai around, they'll always have a swipe. Picked up a fair few that way going from A to B over the years. Either bibbed or just the softbait you are using. I've had pretty inconsistent results on...

Whangaparaoa 14/04

Been hanging out to get out there all week with mint weather. This time the window was this morning with an early gap in the wind. Launched from Tindalls with the intention to stay out of the forecasted southerly and fish the area between there and Army bay. There’s anchovies galore being pushed int...

Okuma X Factor Top Section

Hey all.

Any chance someone has the top section of an Okuma X Factor 6-10kg softbait rod they're willing to part with?

Cheers.

Re: Battery box recommendation

Sistema plastic box with a cable gland drilled into the side. I cut a hole the shape of the box into a piece of rubber foam and glued it to the inside of the hull under the seat as a mount so it doesn't move around in there. You could also add foam to the inside of the sistema box to stop the batter...

Re: meola

Well done, man.

That’s a great fish. It’s just cool that you can get a good feed from that area still.

Look forward to the next report!

Narrow Neck 03/03

Another report from the country’s busiest channel. Paddled out to an emerging sunrise at about 615. Started with a quick drift past rough rock and picked up one snapper on a softbait. Headed to buoy 13 and began the drift with the outgoing, picking up 3 more in relatively quick succession, one on a ...
