Hi all,
I just moved down to the Waikato (Cambridge to be exact) from the big smoke. I've been thinking about getting into Kayak fishing for a couple of years now and think this year might be the year I buy a 'yak at the cheap end of the spectrum and give it a crack in the harbours and estuaries around Whangamata where I go frequently to visit my folks.
I'm not planning on jumping in the deep end and spending a couple of grand on a 4 meter monster (more like a couple of hundred bucks if I can get away with it on something around the 3m mark - don't want to invest heaps and find I don't get out much), but I'm looking forward to getting a bit more access to fishing than I can get off fishing from the beach.
Looking forward to learning what I can and hopefully meet some likeminded people.
Cheers,
Mat
