Jake here, 25 and live in hastings
Not new to fishing but new to kayak fishing
Not long purchased a profish 400
Been to a few lakes on it so far and it's done me very well with some nice fish to blood it
About to get into a bit of sea fishing once i fit it out a bit as it's only how it come from the factory (well set up I must admit)
I fish the lakes in taupo and rotorua and have family in the mount
and will be heading up there fishing a lot in the near future.
Always keen to met like minded people that enjoy th outdoors like I do...
