Re: A great morning out

What's that funky coloured fish called? Is it the softbait in his mouth or does he have feelers coming out of his mouth? Good on you for letting the big one's go. Anything over 60 cm I let go too. Its a goat fish, reef dwellers and the brightest one i've ever caught...phot doesnt quite do it justic...

Re: Barracuda fishing kayaks? Any other NZ-made yaks?

Peace on here ( and the North Shore Kayak Fishing Club) has two? I think Gordon at Barracuda did him a favour for the last one.

Re: Bixpys and Kayak Fishing Comps

And yeh the Stealth is amazing if your choice is to have a yak which is fantastic to simply paddle But have you tried a Bixpy on your Stealth? Has anyone? I mean, given how slippery the Stealths are already, imagine how wide you could get with a Bixpy on it? Not to mention punching into a headwind ...

Re: Cheapest good polarised sunnies - got any good sources please?

Have you ditched the Stealth for a Hobie, or was the kayak make always saying that? If you did, can I ask why? I have only heard good things about Stealth so keen to learn. Yeah, had to sell the Stealth after falling from a ladder and needing surgery to pay off some of my gst bill. Been using a bor...

Re: Cheapest good polarised sunnies - got any good sources please?

Bought some CDX With the magnifying inserts at the bottom of the lenses. Awesome for me when switching out jigs with clips or tying knots, threading line through guides etc. Not the cheapest but damn good.

Re: Spur of the moment to Tiritiri Island

And Rabbit - I also had the ego issues a few years ago but over it now. A photo of a clearly living, dark red kelpie is way better to show mates than a faded dead old donkey... I hardly ever keep more than 3 snapper either. I'm with you on that...i still struggle some times with the old ego wanting...

Re: Beaut micro jigs

At Coromandel last weekend the little GAN jig I bought from Rob Fort nailed two dozen snapper before I broke the leader after it caught on the paddle blade. Definitely the right time for them! Watch out for the hooks on the cheap ones, better to make your own assist rigs or buy a name brand replacem...

Re: Bounty Hunter Day Trip

Cheers mate. Always good value on BH. Some nice kings caught. Stevie created a bit of initial interest but because it is made of a plastic derivative the guys immediately found it heavy, ponderous, lacking in responsiveness, hard to steer, sub-optimal layout and if you tried to use it too fast it s...
