Re: A lot can happen in a weekend - advice needed on repair

That scratch looks like it's just through the paint ? Has it gone all the way through the fibreglass too?

Re: Will a Reload Sink?

I was actually wondering the exact same thing a while ago, want to take the reload out when the surf is mild to practice west coast launch and return. Would probably be ideal to have a kid pod to block it off, but might just end up removing my fish finder and using the reload pod.

Re: Most users EVER!

This season had a crap, wet, windy start to summer, might have damped down the early enthusiam a bit ? Also, I've spent a lot of 'fishing' days re-doing some of the concrete tile roof on our house, been a terrible summer for getting out! Don't worry, pretty soon Ill be asking for advice about winter...

Re: New rod sunday

I love the action of my 24T, also amazing how light they are for the line weight. What weight is that one Blair ?

Re: Anchor management

Anchor stowing was 60% of the reason I bought a Reload, those two 'live bait' hatches behind the seat work great for the anchor. Anchor + chain in one and the winder with rope in the other one.

Re: Pb in my Jackson kayak kraken

She's a beauty (the fish and the boat) - What weight gear were you using ? Probably a good string puller that one.

Re: Weekend spots in auckland area?

99% of your fishing there will be within 2 hours either side of change of tide, but you would still want to be anchored. I also use a 1.5kg anchor instead of the usual 0.7kg kayak anchor.

Re: Weekend spots in auckland area?

Will be launching from Shelly Beach this weekend, I'm not much of a paddler, so usually find a nice spot to anchor within about 15 minutes of launching. My average size has certainly gone up since I started fishing the Kaipara, if you head down towards the mouth the fish can get extreme, loads of bi...

Re: Weekend spots in auckland area?

I'm heading out on the Kaipara this Saturday, welcome to come along, but haven't been out for a fish in ages, so can't guarantee anything. Fishing might be a bit different to your usual, we usually anchor up due to the current and also commonly use 2-3Oz sinkers. Good chance there will be a few shar...

Saturday morning Kaipara fish

Hi there, Looking at heading out for a fish on the Kaipara Saturday morning if anyone is keen to come along. Haven't been out much so far this year, but the fishing is usually reasonably good and you certainly see a bit more variety in the species that you catch. Feel free to send me a pm for a bit ...

Re: Fish Finder on Marine Deals website

Yep, I had a little black and white Lowrance on my last kayak, 'upgraded' to a large color unit on my current kayak and I miss the daylight readability of the old unit. Lowrance are very good quality for a reasonable price.

Re: I now have a Kayak! Now for the softbaiting rod....

I've always found $200 to be the sweet spot between quality and price. Always been a big fan of Shimano gear. I have Baitrunner reels on all my rods now, they work great for stink-bait fishing.

Re: Chill Pod, Insulated Fish Bag, Insulated cover

I thought the chill pod was the next best thing after sliced and bagged bread, would be interested to know what aspect of it makes it worth considering the other two options ?
