Good question. My Humminbird 597 is hanging on despite a few close calls. Love that unit. If you find a model where the electrical connectors are integrated in to the mount, please share. I think Humminbird really missed a trick by scrapping that design.
Just to add to the discussion, this is my hook remover, it has an iki spike built in to the handle. I used to use the spike all the time, but I prefer a knife now. Better handle and the wider blade is more forgiving of a slightly inaccurate iki. As I said in my previous post, the hook remover is awe...
I carry a few things on/in my PFD: - Braid snips - Hook sharpener - Hook remover (great for barracouta and other undesirables) - Long nose pliers (no split ring thingie) - Safety knife It sounds like a lot of junk to carry, but it all gets tucked away and I wouldn't be without any of it.

Unless I'm mistaken, we fished together in Auckland quite a few years ago. Things have obviously changed for both of us since then. I've been in Northland since Auckland.

It might more properly be called soft plastic fishing, since most of the lures are made of synthetic materials. However, some brands e.g. Gulp! a...

Welcome. Assuming you're still looking and want a plastic, paddle kayak, you won't go far wrong with the popular Ocean Kayak (e.g. Prowler/Tridents) and Viking (Reload; Profish) models. After that, it's a question of personal preference. It would be good to try as many as possible before buying. Sec...

I love the Stradic Ci4s, but thinking your asking too much from it to to do the heavier end of jigging. Maybe look at the midsize Penn Slammers as an alternative. Well built and IPX rated.
