NN 27/10

A great victory for England!
Another predictable victory for the Mayor.
And a great morning on the water with a bunch of good blokes.
Everyone going home with enough for tea.
Come on England :beer:

Nice one, I avoided NN because of the Marathon. Launched from Rothesay but only managed a couple pannies.

What depth were you doing your drifts at Luke?
I'm not sure as I don't have a FF. My fishing involves a lot of luck. I was roughly half way between the green buoys and rough rock.

NN 20-10

After completing my Mayoral duties of firing the starting gun at the Auckland marathon I decided to go for a quick fish. The road closure was a bit of an inconvenience but having competed in La Marathon De Paris, for those that don't speak French roughly translates to "The Paris Marathon" in 2009, i...

Re: NN The Mayor returns.

Dedant, don't make the same mistake as one of my other novice pupil's, namely Doc Profit, did last year.
It's The Marathon and NN is a no go area all morning.
Obviously as Mayor I'll be cutting the starting tape and am also afforded privileged Mayoral parking.

NN The Mayor returns.

Permission was granted for a quick late morning fish. Paddled out towards rough rock with Steve and drifted back to Taka. Both of us caught plenty of fish along the way with the tried and trusted new penny and orange slider doing the damage. Not sure where my usual fishing companions were, probably ...

Narrowneck Annual Kahawai Classic

Plans were made and a 615am kick off was agreed by myself, Kermit, Eugenie and Baz for the above annual comp. Things didn't start off great for me. My wife had told me to be quiet when leaving so as not too wake the boys. Unfortunately I'd left my drink bottle on the stairs which I stepped on result...

Re: Fun Fishing with Ferry's

That's the downside of NN, so many boats and with all that sea it amazes me why they feel the need to get so close. Very frustrating and you can never really relaxe as your always looking out for the next idot trying to run you down. Notwithstanding this, it's still a great place to fish and you can...

Re: Narrow Neck 03/03

Nice haul. I was out there with Mitch (Kermit), mint morning. I managed 6. I left Mitch out there still waiting to get on the board, I think he must of been sleeping again. :lol: Sliders and new penny doing the business. Tried the flea but only got 1 keeper out of 15 fish, was getting hooked up on e...

Narrowneck 10.2

Very quiet morning at NN. Launched at 630 & only saw one other yakker. Mint conditions and finished at 10 with 7 in the bin. Biggest was a real dark coloured fish going 47cm and engulfing an orange slider. Caught fish on all methods, slider, atomic sunrise softies and micro jigs although got alot of...

Re: NN 26/01 On and Off.

As it was low tide I tried something different for a change. I paddled to Taka under the cliffs towing the pictured lure. Managed 5 snapps, in the 36 - 42cm range, not big but still good fun. Then drifted to rough rock and got another 2 on the slider. Bumped into Mitch and had a big paddle back home...

Re: Narrowneck 19.1

Well done - have not fished in ages. Three young kids is a killer... Out of interest, how did you fillet and cook that shark? I tried to skin it but must of done something wrong. It looked easy on utube. I gutted it straight away then chopped the fins and tail off. It was easy to fillet, just ran t...

Narrowneck 19.1

My parents are over from the UK so I headed out at 6 to get some fresh fish for tea. Mitch was busy building his new private empire and the other members of the team were nowhere to be found. With high tide at 7 I trolled a sub sonic lure towards rough rock but only got 3 throw backs. I then parked ...
