Re: Kohi - Monday 6th Feb

Very clinical indeed. 60cms! Well done. I'm still awaiting mine from over there. I ended up keeping 4 snaps @ 34, 41, 47 and one I didn't measure that I gave to Mark. Would have been about 38 I reckon. He ended up with just the one. Interesting that the bite seemed to come on over the slack tide! W...

It has been way too long. Things should calm down a bit after the World Master games in April.

Did they last fish have a brush with a shark? Looks like tooth marks on the flank....
The males get those during the mating season.

Kohi - Monday 6th Feb

It has been a very long time since my last confession. Today however I had a free day without rowing training and with a perfect weather forecast I decided to have a morning trip to Rangi. Trini and friend joined. Conditions were perfect. Ended up being a good fishing morning which was a relief beca...

Re: Kohi Thu Sep 22

Good to see you back out there. Looks like you still remember what to do :) Have your experiences made you more interested in a slimmer fishing kayak? Just like riding a bike :) No sure about getting a sleek kayak. I have just bought a rowing double so may need to wait a while before my next purcha...

Kohi Thu Sep 22

It has been a very very long time since I got to go kayak fishing. I have been learning to row and now do it competitively. Training has been 6 days a week and I just haven't had the time or energy to get out fishing ;( Last weekend was the New Zealand National Masters Rowing Championships at Lake K...

Re: Most users EVER!

I think that the perceived drop off in activity can be purely attributed to the fact that Destin has taken up rowing...... Oh no what have I done :) DSC_2461-001.JPG While I'm learning to row my kayak fishing will be reduced. The lack of fish in close hasn't helped but the past few weeks it seems t...

Kohi Sat Mar 26

A fairly late start this morning. Launched at 7:30 on a very packed Kohi beach with the New Zealand Optimist Nationals being held this week. By the way if you ever want to see what the conditions are like on the beach there is a new webcam that should help. http://www.windsurf.co.nz/webcams/kohi_lg....
