Hey guys,
After fishing off rocks for so many years without much success I thought i would invest in getting a yak to get out that bit further and hopefully catch something decent for once :y:
Only had it for a week and already been out 3 times in it, and if I aint in it I'm thinkin of where I'll go out in it next, hooked already i think!
Always keen for a paddle/fish (when i aint working or chasing round after the kids :whew: ), so will surely see some of you guys out in the water at some stage.

Welcome Kris,

Im sure you well have much better luck fishing out of your yak than off the rocks see you on the water sometime :y:
Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

Will have to give it a go then if the weather holds this weekend. Looks like the park will be closed from 1st July till mid Dec though, they doing a bait drop to get rid of the pests in the park.

Well done on the new yak. Lots of fish to be had aound here. I must say I still love fishing the rocks - caught a nice 2kiloer on wednesday at Duncansby. But yes, the yak does produce the goods more consistantly. Little Manly proved good for winter fishing last year and there are KY on the northern side of the penisular at the mo.

stay safe

Good stuff :y: , you dont hear many people catching anything decent off duncansby these days. I know a guy who goes off little manly in his yak alot and recently caught a 10lb snap there. Gotta love fishing the coast :rock:

i've caught a few decent snapper at duncansby this year and some good kingies were taken there this summer too. i fish the low tide reef, not the ledge - but this talk is probably for a different forum! but the kayak does open up the options
