Hi

Just a thought guys. What about some type of contact list for those with smaller boats or no boat that would like to go for a fish in a bigger boat. I have the odd spot on occasion as I am sure others do. I was looking at some old photos last night which included several very dodgy looking boats I used to fish in. Leaky tinnys starting at 8 ft long. So I know what is like.

Maybe just nicknames and locations then we can send PM's to people in the same area.

Just a thought.

Dino

Hey Kerren , could you set up a listserv that would suit. You already have the email address's of all members so anybody with a spare slot could email to the listserve for distribution and still maintain privacy.

There would have to be some rules to this particular game though. No plying for profit. BYO everthing , donation for fuel etc.

Dino, sounds like a great idea. As you know I don't have a boat but am always keen to go for a boat fish.

An old work mate told me he gets pissed off with all his mates ringing and saying "Take me for a fish dude!" and that's why I don't like to go around asking people to take me out for a fish.

I am always keen to put money towards gas and bait and am keen to help with all the clean up afterwards.

Rockhopper....I think you are on the money there mate, I will investigate and contact the powers that be to find out what would be involved.

I am meeting with Real Developments this evening, so will get it sorted soon as!

i think thats a great idea. i would be in as another also very willing to pay my way and help clean up etc.

also some rules if you were fishing in a competition regarding prizes might need to be looked at i.e all prizes with the person who took you out as it can sometimes cause issues.

I think most skippers would agree that from time to time your crew won't be available when you really want to go fishing( some guy's other halfs actually expect them to spend time with them on the good fishing day's! How sad is that!), so it would be great to have  a pool of fisher people to call on. I am more than happy to take keen fisher's out in my boat. If you get this off the ground you can count me in !!!!!!

I agree with Dio's comment about the regular crew not always being able to go out all the time. I'd be very greatful to be used as a fill in if anybody's short on a crew member. It is on very rare occassions that I don't have the time to go for a fish.

Dino's on to it guys.  Count me in. 

I did a few solo efforts last year when my crew ran out on me and I didn't really enjoy them.  Tryig to anchor in front of that big rock in a swell just doesn't do it for me.

We just need to work out the mechanics of inviting people/advertising spaces and it should be all go.  The other benefit is seeing some new areas with someone who knows them.  This sharing thing is just way to good to let go.

The listserve I mentioned earlier works something like this.

Kerren has email address's of all registered users held on the server. This list could be used as an email distribution list. Basically it works something like this. Somebody sends a message to the server , the server then forwards that message onto everybody on the list. It does it in a BCC so emails address's are kept private. The server also maintains a list of people who can use its services so any old Joe can't send messages to the user comunity.

A couple of thoughts though.

"Isn't someone going to get the hump if they think they might lose buisness" ..er no not really. Anybody running a comercial operation could use the facilty and reach several hundred people in one shot.

What if someone abuses the privelidge.

If anybody upsets their hosts in such a way as to be offensive then their names could be removed from the listserve. They would never know that XYZ had sent out an email because they would never get it.

Rockhopper, your ideas are good. Wouldn't it just be easier to be able to see the list and then pm people.

Also, I was going along with the idea that it's not a profit scheme, just a share of costs and cleaning up etc. I suppose if a commercial outfit approached you, it would be your decision whether to go or not.

Happy to take someone out - I mostly spearfish , particiularly in Summer/Autumn but in winter when it is cold or spring when I can't see anything (algal bloom) I do a fair bit of sport fishing.

Even when freediving . the person I take out will have the boat to themselves for up to two hours at a time. Also they have a chance to see what us spearo nutters get up to.

Word of warning - my boat is only 14ft 6 long but on a good forecast (rare these days ) I am regularly plying the Hauraki gulf to Kawau , Tiri , Hen & Chicks , Little Barrier.

Hi Folks, Another wonderful forum!, I, like many others are not in the realms of boat owners ( have to by my wife a house first) although I am an enthusiastic deckie. I consider myself reasonably proficient at boat handling, anchoring, turning up on time, sharing costs and the clean up, and as a bonus, I catch my share of fish and don't borrow tackle. I work shiftwork and am often off during the week and always keen for a new experience. I always bring enough bait and burley for two trips. Anyone keen for a hand drop me a line.

What days is it possible to come along on a charter as a solo angler to make up numbers on the boat? Most my fishing buddies are sorted with their own boats or are too tight to hand over cash for a good days fishing, so it's hard for me to get a group together. It was the best 50 odd bucks I ever spent.

perhaps we could also have a list for people who are trying to put a group together to book a charter?  or anyone who has a boat booked and need one or two more. i know from experience its damn near impossible to find a boat with one spot open when you have some time off.

top idea top forum, notch one up to you guys again, we used to have a Ramco 570, hull and trailor only and unless we had rob waddell on board dont tink we were heading anywhere...
Yet theres no reason why a group of four or five boaties couldnt load up there vessels hit the same spot, have bait, gas, clean up and barbq afterwards supplied by crew and post some digital shots to this very web site for all to enjoy without anyone seeking a profit.... perhaps there is scope for a mix n match type comp where the objective is to get out with guys n gals never before met as opposed to winning prizes... just a thought

well barrie, how about next weekend, the 17-18th, to white island? cost, between $160-200 depending on number of fishers. talked to cova rosa and they are available and trying to put it together. they had a guy call with 5 and the boat can handle up to 10 overnight. so if we can get three its a go at 200 and with five 160. itchy spool thumb?

Why don't boat owners post a week or a few days before they intend going out and advise how many they need, time leaving , time (approx) returning etc.

There could be a thread set up with this info on?

barrie, long time to get back to you i know, but does "i was fishing" count as an excuse? i just looked at the pic in the back of NZ fishing news and can't tell by the advert or pic if cova rosa are a divable boat. its big, 16.5 m, but a bit high in the rear to get in and out from unless there is a small platform back there i cannot see. i am keen to get into some snorkelling if we could manage to get some people together and book the boat. so far in my communications with them they are more then helpful, would love to plan a trip with them, maybe an overnighter of fishing and diving in BOP, what you think? i am gonna be calling them soon anyway and will ask about dive facilities. i take it if they had a compressor they would say so in their ad. cheers john

I have been out on Cova Rose twice. First was in September 2001, we got the usual Hapuka and stuff. I got wasted by a monster king on 24kg ..... well it felt pretty big.... at the Volkners. Scott Hollis Johns was the deckie, he is a legend! But he got a real job.  The second trip was in March ....round about then of this year. We spent the first night trying to catch livies with no luck in trhe shelter of White Island. There were gale force winds of around 60 kn... We were trying to catch livies but all we could get were flying fish (netted) sharks and kingies. I stayed up most of the night catching them ... mainly only around 10 kg on light gear. The bigger ones would get eaten by sharks. Plenty of bluenose, hapuka, gemfish caught the next day. Got a few skippies and an albacore, nothing real big but it was great. You get really well looked after on that boat. The skipper was a canadian guy filling in for Lance.

Would you recommend buying the puka rigs of them or making your own ledger type rig? If you recommend making my own can you tell me what the rigs consist of eg. hook size, nylon strength etc .

$200 per head with food , hope its good food . I'm sure it is.

Hi there, I'm just putting my feelers out to see if anyone is interested.

I have a section at Wellington's bay (tutukaka), there is a old 20ft caravan on the site, it's abit rough but is a good base for a fishing hoiliday. It has power, water (hot and cold), a shower etc.

I used to spend alot of time there myself but with getting married and our frist on the way time is not on my side. So the place gets alittle run down with nobody there.

What I would like is if anyone is interested please e-mail me at mailto:[email protected]">[email protected] .

Sorry about that guys. I only want to rent it.

Ialandi you hit the nail on the head, renting and sprucing up. It's not like some flash caravan park but would suit some fishermen fishing the toot area or pasting through. there's off road parking and a turn around area for a boat. Heaps of room. But the grass is long and needs a good clean up.

Excellent Forum  !!

I have a slightly bigger boat and normally always have some spare room. Also really need at least 2 people to manage it and it gets very frustrating when I desperately want to go for a fish or a dive and can't find anyone who wants to come along.

I know this is an old forum but, if anyone is managing it and sees this, please add me to the PM list or whatever you use (I have only just found this site so not familiar with how it works yet).

Also keen to do some mid week trips esp. over summer. Anyone keen on fishing and/or diving and maybe some overnight trips as well. Split costs of fuel, bait, etc.

Thanks

I'm sure your still sore from the ass whipping you got from being out fished by me at the Furuno...

In answer to Q's.

Normally fish for Snapper, Kingfish etc. anywhere in the Waitemata / Hauraki area as boat is Moored down at OBC. Basically anywhere from Sandspit to Gt Barrier to Coromandel peninsula depending on if it is an overnight trip or day trip.

Also into scuba diving and try to fit one of these in with the daily fishing when possible. Been fishing these areas for many years and have some regular spots ( X ) for diving and fishing. I believe in splitting the catch as fairly as possible so everyone takes something home with them (including the crayfish) so as an example if 4 guys go out and catch 4 crayfish and 12 snapper, they each take home a crayfish and 3 snapper. In saying that though - I also believe in splitting all the costs fairly as Fishing is can be expensive.

Looking for people to share petrol and bait costs and also help clean up afterwards.

I'd be keen on an outing sometime D. Sharing costs, cleaning etc is all good by me. Sharing catch is a good way IMO I don't do any diving so can't contribute cray wise but love chasing snapper and kingies and all the usual species.

Absolutely !! I could just keep em all for myself but that would be greedy... Besides, people who aren't willing to contribute aren't true fishos (the kind who's hook you have to bait for them) and should stick to charter boats where the captain gets paid to look after them.

I have also organised a couple of West Coast (Raglan) trips during November and December (Mon 24th Nov. and Sat 13th Dec) which may have a few spots left (24th definetely does) so anyone who can take a Monday off and has this date free ? $100 per person incl. bait.

Would also be keen to get some other boats callsigns who are out and about so we can share info. on the day as to how different spots are going.

Hi  I would be into this idea as well. I have a Stabi 490 which I get out in as much as I can but it is usually by myself as I don't know that many fishers here. Parnell. Also it would be good to get out in the outer gulf in a bigger boat as the other half  is not keen on me going that far out by myself in mine. Count me in. It goes without saying that I would meet my share of costs.

Hi Richard..... you don't wont to go fishing up here mate unless you like driving down Queen st with the road ripped up and bumps of around one meter to drive over and trying to find a parking in the middle of it plus guys driving at speed passed and around you makes for hard fishing...... thats why i head out to the open sea at least 20miles before even thinking of looking back..... i spend 3hrs just traveling.... 1 1/2 hrs on the road and 1 1/2hrs in the boat to get away from it........ you have it all mate im telling you stick to the peace and quite of your coast.... it may-ham here in the big smoke.....

Thanks for everything you did for us Eric. may you rest in peace, You were one of the real legends of NZ recreational fishing

Good day all,

Quite the little community you got here and a great site.  Way to go to the organizers and participants.

Here's the scoop.  I'm a Canadian traveling to New Zealand April through June.  I can stumble around trying my luck (if it wan't for the bad I'd have none at all)...  or one of you fine folks might volunteer to help me out a bit.  I'm willing to help out with funds but can't afford the guiding costs.  Most importantly though, I have good contacts on the Vancouver Island (super salmon fishery), Saskatchewan (I don't suppose you have walley or pike there?) and best of all - I live on the Coast of the Arctic Ocean!!  Fishing for grayling, monster lake trout and even arctic char under a midnight sun anyone?

Ethanchuk,

If a 1/2 - 1 days inshore sea fishing appeals let me know.  There is some good snapper (bream?) fishing at that time not far from Auckland. Small boat (15') stuff. Could organise something once you know your plans/movements. 

Central North Island river fishing can be good then, mostly rainbow's some browns. 4lb - 5lb typical. Not my scene but try a post on the fresh water thread as from what I've read here mostly salt water chat on this thread. I'm sure I could con a cousin of mine into a day off work in Taupo/Tongariro if it expanded his network of possible fishing adventures to include the beasties you've mentioned. Come to think of it, go there first, trout makes great bait.

Cheers,F.T.

Hi Ethanchuk,

tou'll find most freshwater stuff on that forum, but if you want a hand with some trophy trout in the Rotorua region PM me and I'll put you into the areas expert. No it won't cost you.

Cheers

PICK ME! PICK ME! Going out with folk who can fish, would be a real bonus.

If "Diversion" partook Maraitai comp he can verify they gave out a prize http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb001">IMG alt=Yeah Baby src= http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/4/4_17_12.gif"> for "Persistance"every comp & finally got to put in a weigher (1.25kg ).

 Do'nt even snigger! I was so bloody proud to have finally caught one.

I tend to sleep in carparks & run into Cardinal Bouys in the dark so figure it might be a smart thing to see how it should be done.

wicked thanx to the guy who put me onto this web site .i recently put a message on trademe community notice board stating that i need people to come fishing with me from time to time and had very little reply apart from being advised to come here. next thing i know i find im not the only one with this problem i need contact numbers for people in the north shore or west auckland area who would be keen to come fishin sometimes at short notice due to mates cancelling or primo weather conditions . i would also like to be contacted if people need  more crew .is there some way of meeting applicants first to ensure compatibility etc  .FISHING OR DIVING BUDDIES NEEDED contact me .maybe could set up a list of available crew and a list of available boats ..... please keep me informed tight lines ski

Welcome Ski.

It wont take you long to get to know us here, I have been out fishing with lots of the others from here, never been a problem.

Ski, I'm one West Aucklander that manages to go out fishing, snorkling or sometimes just boating. I have room for four on board and often go out during the week. If you PM me your e-mail and ph no. then I'd be happy to get togeather for a fish/dive with you!

I sometimes make last minute decisions to go out, usually the weather helps make it easier, but then again we do have some fun.

Ski,

Welcome, I'm always above the water. Like most here, I love to fish. If you want to meet a sample of the folks abounding here keep your eyes posted for a catch up such as the odd meeting we have had at Swashbucklers for a quick beer and some slow lies.  Cheers F.T.

Ski,

Be careful that Fishful type character doesn't lure you into his devilish ways of drinking and leching on shapely women. I fell for it and look where it's got me.

Bent One,

Ginger was signing up a new recruit last night. He was writing her Swashies name on her hand so she wouldn't forget. MUF she now is. He then went on to ask my diner companion about her level of sexual activity whole traveling overseas. Ahh, some things never change, particularly that PIR8. Cheers, F.T.
