Bender......... that bouy had better hold up in a current mate or else you may have to wait till the tide slackens off some what, before you can find it..... it sometimes takes two like you often see on a cray pot to at least keep one afloat..... just trying to help out in case it all go's under.....

Barrie..... i will see you in the shop mate Saturday.....

 

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

A dozen Haagens yesterday, I've finished them now. As soon as I get some money I'm going to buy a decent 3-4kg rod, and some light lures to go with it.

Geeez Strawberry, you always gets the nicest toys.

What did I just get? I just ordered off Demon Jigs 3 of his bibless minnows, 3 or 4 of his Searock jigs and a couple of his baby squid. That ispretty much what he gave me totake to W.A. with me, but we got so badly mauled over there I lost pretty much everything! Ay caramba!

Having used jigs with the swinging hook tied to the top eye of the jig, I must admit, they are indeed very effective.

cheers, Stu.

It is only my overwhelming natural humility that mars my perfection.

Some 50lb Suffix trace.  Am sick of the Blakc Magic as after one nick it seems to let go, tried maxima but found it too hard to tie effectively so no. 3 here I come.  Also some Beers to reproduce life on a charter while trying to tie traces.

   Cheers

The factory made swing hooks or assist hooks use either kevlar or spectra trace.  Worked for me today with a 25lb Kingie in Cook strait plus a couple Puka.  Those assist hooks worked really well!  Was really surprised to get hit by a kingie, must have been lost  LOL!
give it death!

ahh the beauty of internet shopping... even when its raining, you can buy a new toy without going out and getting wet.

What i bought today? - wait for it - an Alvey direct wind reel - can you believe it? I was forced to boldly go where very few in nz have gone before because the old calcutta lost me the only decent fish on our trip out yesterday - that was the last straw - it has to be binned.

Drasitic measures some have suggested, but i think it could prove to be a good reel - very easy for casting, heaps of grunt for pulling the big fish out(gears, what gears?), good basic construction, hyouge line capacity (try a kilometre of 6kg) - and hey even an idiot like myself would have trouble abusing it.

Only downside is what rod to bolt it to - might have to go give the friendly chaps a composite developments a ring...
