Wefaknis,

Hi I'm Wefaknis, Ive been sober now for 2 hours. I'm 28 years old, 2.5 children, I live In South Auckland (watch your wallet), Been fishing ever since I can remember, I'm a small boat fisherman so it's the inner harbour for me. If I'm not boating, i'm dirtbiking, so Ive got two black holes to pour any last money into. I must say its fishing that comsumes my small mind.

Oh yeah I'm not in the 20lb club yet, close but not yet.

I must say this fourm has improved my fishing greatly over the years cause of people like yourselves who share all this info.

Cheers

Wefaknis

my doc told me its tackle addiction syndrome and spreads rapidly in those who spend time near/on the sea.  i told him my addiction was gettin stronger by the day and that i think i have a bad case of it, so anyway the doc recommended  i buy the new Shimano Calcutta 400TE and a TLD30 2 speed.............i am starting to feel a little better now, maybe well enough to go fishing, hehehe...............
Cheers

Marc

T.A.S (TACKLE ADDICTION SYNDROME)

my doctor told me its tackle addiction syndrome and that the symptons although gradual can rapidly spread in those who spend time on or near the sea.........after diagnosing me with TAS he prescribed me with a script for some good medicine..................2 days later and i am starting to feel like i am making some progress............the new shimano calcutta 400TE was the perfect prescription for my illness......infact i am starting to feel so much better i am ready to go fishing....hehehe

Cheers

Marc

Howdy all.
.this thread looked like the best place to put my 1st post so here I go....
.I`m from Golden Bay and am known as Squid.
Was actively involved in the inshore fishing industry until 2 years ago when an accident put me on shore on a permanent basis.
I now design and make the HAPPY HOOKER range of lures for the commercial tuna fleet.Two years ago there were only 30 lures in use, now there are over 500 in use this season, with requests for more.The beauty of it is, it keeps me involved in the industry and lets me catch up on old friends.
I have three sons who also are active on the water.
My main interests are fishing , fishing, and fishing ,in that order.
Looking forward to getting to know you all.
Cheers
A.

Likewise, welcome Albatross. You should have a lot of fun on this site.

Seems like we have a bit in common & probably know a few mutual fishing mates.

Will look forward to your reports.

Cheers.

Nobody cares, but:

Hi I am Marc. I'm an American from da great state of Kaliforania. I am 28 and happily married to a hot little Kiwi chick who was crafty enough to drag me down here. (Yes my wife does fish too.) I wasnt too keen on this place at first but it's growing on me. Once I get past driving on the wrong side of the road, your thing for Marmite, and the rain, you Kiwi's are alright.

We don't have any kids yet which enables me to get out and fish more frequently than most, so be jealous, BE VERY JEALOUS!

My homie "Master Limitless" has been teaching me how to fish from a Kayak this last year and every time I/we pull up to the beach or ramp, people look at us funny and say "You must be keen bro! Arent you worried about sharks?"

I'm more afraid of larger boats near me and yes sharks do scare me. In fact the first fish from the Kayak was an 8ft bronze whaler.

I am a grease monkey by trade so if you busted up your ride and cant get a WOF don't ask me cause I just might overcharge you for the information.

Haven't contributed much lately due to a busy season thanks to some great weather patterns. I'm Jeremy 35 married to Tash for the last 4 or so years and work play and sleep fishing. I'm the Auck / Nthlnd rep for Black Magic and am lucky enough to fish a few times a week.....no kids obviously. Been with BM for 1 and a half years and can safely say that I love my job and enjoy learning every day.

Have owned a 14ft Ramco for 6 years and had a V13 for 5 before that. Will probably never go bigger than my current boat as living in Auckland don't really see the need. We're in Bucklands Beach so able to get boat in the water in 20 mins for those spur of the moment trips.

I'm pretty much into all types of fishing and travel a bit obviously with the job to some pretty interesting spots. Very occassionally get large fish but the buzz to me is just being out there doing it.

Enjoy this forum and its reports - Kerren and co do a great job.

Pet hates - boats in the burley trail, immigrant ignorance, Half Moon ramp on Anniversary day, Auck motorway congestion and any form of fishing with a net - bar a landing net for livies or squid.

HellFish, marmite's a good thing aslong as you don't smear it on like jam.

My ex pat kiwi cousins living in yankee land came over for a holiday years ago and they smeared it on in big dollops... no wonder they screwed their faces up.

It also makes a good sunblock, you should try it sometime!
