Re: No good Deed

Yep, I thought we were back to classic FOM. I needed a laugh with this shitty weather. LOL, it was quite believable, wasn't it? Some half-truths in everything... I was meant to go fishing with my son and had considered going on my own. And I have caught a shark before, just not from the kayak, so t...

Re: No good Deed

To add to your regrets and self-recrimination - that's an edible species. Hmm, probably should have researched the photo that I got from Google to get a more dangerous species :) It's just a joke, the pic of the shark is from Google, but the pic of the hole in my side is real. Just not a shark bite...

No good Deed

Thursday I was meant to go out with my son, but we had cancelled the day before due to the forecast. But the morning looked good and I was keen on some alone time, so I headed out to Orere Point on my own... Karma was going to make sure I regretted that decision as my son had been looking forward to...

Re: Gone - 9AH Battery

Worth every penny to hear Telecaster say that he didn't even recognize me when he collected it!
I've lost 20kgs since December!

Anyway, battery is taken.

Gone - 9AH Battery

I upgraded to a 12AH, so this 9AH is just lying around and taking effort to charge it every time I charge the other one. There are no promises, but I think it's in good condition. I just plugged it in to charge this morning and the charger LED when straight to blinking, which I believe means the bat...

Re: Man drowns near Whangarei after falling out of kayak

Wasn't there another kayaker in Whangarei just weeks ago who got stuck on a rock or something?

Andrew, what are you guys doing up there?

Sad this one though!!

Nicely done, glad it worked out well - in winter that can quickly go south.

Re: 8 Months Later

Thanks peeps, now I'm keen to get out more often.

If those fish look a little pale, it's only because they've been scaled. I like fillets with the skin on.

8 Months Later

Last time I went fishing was 15th of December, can't believe it... There was a time when I used to go fishing twice per week with only Destin and a few others fishing more often than me. What happened this year? Divorce (separation) and being sick. Anyway, I took the day off and this morning I final...

Re: Yummy/Awful uncommon fish

Old thread, but interesting none the less.

Not a fish, but as others have mentioned stuff other than fish, my all time favorite is Abalone (Pāua) and alikreukel (Giant Periwinkle, don't think you find them in NZ). Best meat on the planet in my opinion!!

Re: Introducing my new battleship old town PDL

Apparently the PDL beats even the MK with speed. Was happily cruising 7kph with no efforts. Pedaling at max speed took me up to 10kph!! It's quite a quiet prop too so stealth definitely a big plus! MK's got nothing on me!! Got up to 13kph with nowhere near to full throttle, but I don't feel very co...

Re: Introducing my new battleship old town PDL

I'm jealous!!

While I have basically the same kayak, just with a petrol motor on it (Predator XL), I think there's some major advantages of stealth and ease of moving short distances with the PDL. And seems like the PDL is a dolphin magnet!

Enjoy it mate.

Re: Thursday AHB

I feel your pain man, was always immune to cold water up until 10 years ago. Always got some stares from other divers because I scuba dived in shorts and a t-shirt (just to avoid nipple rash from the BCD) when others would complain about the cold in their 5mm websuits, most of them even wearing hood...

Man that looks delicious. I donno... I punch chefs who put that size helping on my table and expect me to pay for it! Looks good, but I don't eat with my eyes. And considering that I can sniff that size helping up without blinking, I don't eat with my nose either! Just kidding Esquire, it looks del...
