Howdy.
I've finally got myself a proper fishing kayak (OK 4.5 elite)
I've done a little kayak fishing up north with friends but finally bought my own. Went 2nd hand to start to see what I like/hate/want etc

Came from a 6m Haines hunter so trying to get used to the changes.

Softies and lures all the way.

Fishing out of Waihi beach and Whangamata areas.

Cheers👍

Hey mate. I do a bit of fishing out from Whangamata when I'm down that way. It's a good time of year right now, I picked up some fish on Saturday morning right in close to the rocks. It's really quiet round there at the moment too, have fun!

Did the same thing 7years back. Ramco sat around too long at times. Under the cover the solder joints in radio /sounder ect dried out over time causing problems. My yak gets more use than my boat ever did.. As you said boats do not like sitting around and major services are not cheap. :(
