Re: Jones Bay and two kings

Lovely spot that. I wish I had been into kayak fishing years ago when I lived in Auckland as I went up there surfing quite a bit at Takatu pt and once land based fishing off the end. Thanks for sharing. It sounds like it was a fun outing. Cheers

Re: NN 27/02 - Finally!

Good work! Or no work in your case... I smoked up a Trevally recently and had it in fish cakes- very tasty indeed. Good in Sashimi too I heard if you're that way inclined.

Burley making by numbers

For those of us who still use burley and stink bait... I've been saving up fish frames, old Pilchards, guts n gills etc for a while in the bait freezer for the purpose of making burley. A guy from another fishing forum (Dan Musson) inspired me once when I watched a you tube video of him making burle...

Re: 26/1 Orere

Great stuff. Looks like magic conditions. Kayaking fishing is such a blast. Imo it's the most exciting and productive form of fishing having surfcasted and boat fished for years. Kayak fishing wins hands down. Thanks for posting and keep the TRs coming as you continue to head out [emoji5] Sent from ...

Puk Bay firing again. 25-01-19

I drove past Pukerua Bay twice on Friday before actually making it down for a fish at 6pm. Stunning conditions all day with boats and kayaks everywhere. I was fizzing to get out there and into it. Met a friend out there in his rubber ducky and waited for another mate Mike in his kayak. So the three ...

Re: Berleying and anchoring - how to and what not to...

Hi Gavmania. For me I have always anchored, bait and burleyed so I can't comment on softbaiting / drifting. I fish predominantly over sand in around 12-13m of water so I rely on the burley to attract fish to me so for me it's a must. I purchase 2 burley bombs (sometimes make my own with a mulcher) a...

Pukerua Bay Dec 27, Jan 12

Dec 27. Hit Pukerua Bay at 6:30am (slept in Doh!) and the conditions were near perfect 9/10 so wasn't expecting much as from previous experience the nice conditions don't produce that good at all where I fish (12-13m over sand). Once anchored up and pumping burley rod bent over big time and after a ...

Pukerua Bay 11-12-18

I had called all my fishing buddies, people I meet out there on occasion and even people interested in trying kayak fishing but no one was able to make it! Oh well a solo mission it was. Forecast was good but it didn't look that flash at home (Levin) when I left. Got to Puk Bay at around 5pm and the...

New to Horowhenua Coast

Howdy. I have recently moved from Upper Hutt to Levin. Normally fish in the summer / autumn months a bit further down the coast at Pukerua Bay. I'm looking at heading out at our local beaches once we settle in and water gets warmer. Are there any folk who head out at Hokio beach, Waikawa or Waitarer...
