Hi Everyone

Going up to the Kaipara this weekend with some mates. Thinking of taking my kayak up for a fish. Has anyone fished the Kaipara and what sort of soft bait set up did you use? How much jig head weight due to the swift running tide ect............

Cheers Murdoch

Where bouts are you launching from?

Fishing across the top / bottom of the tides is the best and safest....

There is quite a few guys that launch from around Tinopai but just about all anchor up and use bait simply due to,the fact of the currents which are strong and the murkiness of,the water
