Hi Guys,

Anyone know if these are available in NZ? http://stealthkayaks.co.za/accessories/ ... t-torpedo/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; . Also interested in opinions as to pros and cons of these vs a live bait tank. Obviously a bit of drag when paddling but a lot less hassle than plumbing a tank. Having seen Dave_g land a couple kingis on the weekend with the assistance of one of these I'm keen to sort a live bait solution one way or another.

One thing I will say is my next livebait torpedo (I just make one from PVC pipe) will float on its own. Attached to the yak with 2 pieces of string it makes a lot of noise in a bit of wind or swells. My next plan will be one that floats by itself with a single piece to string so it drags somewhere behind the kayak.
