Not fishing related, but staying at a friends place on the water in Howick, and they have a couple of kayaks. Took the kids for a paddle, an adult on each yak. My 5yo asked to have a go on his own. I let him have a go, not sure he'd get it, but gave him a couple of tips on paddling, and he nailed it. Couldn't quite believe he was so confident and competent. Might have a budding young kayak fisho in a few years (he LOVES all things fishing).

If you have kids, give them a go, and don't doubt them, and see what they can do. So encouraged and pumped for the young fella.

Nice samtayl,

I'm just about ready to take my 10yo on his first kayak fishing trip. He LOVES fishing, but the Mrs is pretty scared of anything water related and I certainly won't take him too far, but should be good just anchoring up somewhere close to the shore.

Thanks team! Get into it FOM. Find somewhere sheltered and just get him used to being in the kayak and fishing.

Thanks for the encouragement. Hopefully you'll see more of him in the not to distant future.

Now, off to Otamure Bay (whananaki) for a week and to target some kingfish.

Went for a fish there once. Were leather jackets in their thousands. Death on gulp bait. Not bad eating tho when you foul hook the bastards.
