Re: Newbie - auckland - what helped when starting out?

Best help when starting out? Join a club if possible. Even just join a in on a club outing. Ask questions. Look at what works for others. Online forums, Facebook etc often have guys posting about planned trips, join them. Leash everything except your gaff. Foam on the handle so it floats is better t...

Re: Dredging the Rangitoto Channel

Regularly gets dredged. Maybe it’ll help remove the invasive carpet mussels introduced in contaminated ballast water .

Re: Kayak wheels - Scupper type

Avoid them. Most scuppers cannot handle the stresses put on them from these, especially with tiny hard wheels. It is very hard to repair splits in the scupper areas . Hobie has factory fitted reinforcements to handle their own wheels for a reason. Beach Wheels Wheeleez are the ultimate, cost a bit m...

Re: Deep diving lures

Savage Gear Manic Prey Diver work well , . Still, it's not a magic bullet, you can drag Dr Evil or anything else, but when they won't bite....they just won't bite.Then you wonder why you bothered. A lot of extra effort for diddly squat in return 😣

Re: Paddle Shopping Auckland

Fergs kayaks in Orakei, Auckland. Sometimes have some decent specials. There is a canoe and kayak store in the Tron?
Also Viking do a nice carbon paddle, Hunting and Fishing Botany could hook you up.
Stealth kayaks have an Angler edition wing blade that looks good.

Re: Hi from Cambridge area with a with Kayak Dilemma.

Ditto, absolutely the best paddling fishing weapon on the water. I’m looking forward to get my next Stealth, you won’t regret trying one if you can.

Re: NN 27/10

Definitely well done England. And you have no idea how much it hurts to admit that! Great coaching, and a physical,thinking, athletic team, absolutely superior performance.
I’ve stayed off the water at the wife’s “ request” , digging bloody gardens is a damn sight harder than paddling!

Re: NN 20-10

To avoid the Marathon road chaos I went out at Murray’s Bay, no idea as I hadn’t been off the beach there before. Came home empty handed. I bow to you sir, you have conquered all before you once again. :)

I still have the moulds for the ute box, wonder what they would go for.
Did your composite fishing kayak get any momentum? I’ve fished from a Stealth now and can understand the attraction. :)

Sunday morning fishing will be determined by the All Blacks. If results go the wrong way I may just drown my sorrows and be unfit to drive. :(

Dedant, don't make the same mistake as one of my other novice pupil's, namely Doc Profit, did last year.
It's The Marathon and NN is a no go area all morning.
Obviously as Mayor I'll be cutting the starting tape and am also afforded privileged Mayoral parking.
Ok thanks for the heads up. :y:

Re: Bixpy

The fishing advantages can be had with a PDL or Hobie Mirage 180 as well . I have an irrational fear of electrckery and gadgets myself. It’s a wonder if I’ll ever catch a fish with a paddle and primitive people power only non battery kayak ever again ? :(
