Hi all,

Thought I'd better introduce myself (or reintroduce, I apparently signed up ages ago!), I'm Mat, currently living in Cambridge/working in Paeroa, so I imagine I'll be fishing around the Coro/west coast harbours predominantly.

My wife just bought me a 3.1m fishing yak for our anniversary :inlove: . It's nothing too fancy, a "Winner Ambush" from Wave Passion in Albany, but it'll be perfect to get me out there after YEARS of trying to save up and get one with life inevitably intervening and scuttling my plans.

Really looking forward to getting out and about exploring around the Whangamata area over New Years and trying my luck. I've got a lot to learn, but can't wait to get stuck in.

Anyway that's me, hope to meet some of you out there and learn a bit off you.

Welcome (back) aboard. I'm pretty new around here myself. Live near Pirongia, but tend to fish out of the Mount or Coromandel mainly. Have had a couple of lashes out in the Kawhia and Aotea harbours. Still trying to figure out how to fish them a bit smarter, and Raglan needs a bit more of my attention too. Good luck, I might bump into you somewhere! Cheers.

Hey Mat,

How are you finding the Ambush? Thinking of getting one myself :)
