Nice, welcome aboard MW. Kayak looks good, though it's missing a few blood stains.

Look forward to reading those TRs.

I'm also new to kayak fishing, but experience boat fisherman. I also recommend the North Shore Kayak fishing club, they always seem to have meet ups(which I've missed all of them due to work) and they sounds like good bunch of people who are full of knowledge.

Good thing about the shore is we have easy access to fishing spots that are good for people like us starting out. I've been testing out the water at browns bay, it's easy to launch when there is no swell, has a few fish around the reef and you don't need to paddle far.

Are you a softbaiter or someone who likes to get their hands smelly with bait?

Thanks for the welcomes! :)

Thanks for the tips - have just signed up to North Shore Kayak Fishing Club :y:

jedijay, yeah lots of good spots to get out to around the Shore and it does sound like Browns Bay might be a good starting spot.

Thinking I might start out soft-baiting to start with, but don't mind getting my hands dirty (in the few fishing trips I have been on).

Jason, yip Andy looked after me :y:
