The Lateral Line: EP#32
After an epic trip last time round, all the boys want to do is go back out wide and repeat the process. This time around, Andrei is keen-as to catch a big king and tags along. An epic day's fishing was had.
Catch 'Double Trouble' Jig Review
Say you were having a nightmare where you could only have one jig to use for the rest of your days (Heaven forbid!) After waking up in a cold sweat, you might just get to thinking if that really WAS the case, what lure would I choose? Based on the results I’ve seen over the last few years. It would be hard to go past the Catch Double Trouble as the most effective and versatile jig out there. This initially angular looking pattern comes in a pretty wide variety of sizes from 100 grams to 300 grams, and I have personally used, and watched it in action, catching darn near everything out there that hits a lure.
NEW Abu Garcia rod review. VERITAS 4.0
VERITAS = VERI TASTY! There are just some products that I know I’m going to buy the moment I see them. As a massive soft bait and lure fishing fan, I love catching decent fish on relatively light weight spinning gear, and when the opportunity arises to upgrade or replace broken gear, it’s a no brainer.
The Lateral Line: EP#31
The cuffs have come off. The weather is perfect and the top water fishing season has just kicked off in New Zealand. The plan is to head wide to an off shore island that is surround by big fish habitat. Wash rocks, step drop offs and tonnes of current. Big stick baiting rods and reels are rig and ready to do tangle with the the Yellow Tail King Fish.
Salty Bay Salt Guard
When you are fishing or boating, there’s one thing that is for sure. Salt is going to get into your gear and cause havoc to expensive fishing rods, reels, boat engines, fittings, trailers, you name it. Here’s a great new product to the NZ market, developed and formulated here in New Zealand by Campbell Banks and Sam Johnston.
The Lateral Line: EP #29
The boys are on a 4 day fishing mission in a harbour they were land based fishing a month or so back. Milan managed to land a nice Trevally from the beach so the boys reckon they should have a tonne of fun fishing the harbour in the boat. The fishing was harder then expected so Milan comes up with a crazy idea to catch something different and ends up stuck in the mud.
The Lateral Line: EP #28
The boys are fishing in an area they have both heavily fished in years gone by. Both Nathan and Milan haven’t fished the area in over 2 years. This particular part of the Bay Of Plenty is about to become a marine reserve and the boys are super keen to fish it just one more time before it’s locked down to fishing. The dream being to land one last jumbo King Fish for old times sake. Excitement levels start peaking as multiple schools of Kahawai come to the surface to feed late in the afternoon. Top water lures are cast around the schools of feeding Kahawai trying to provoke a bite from New Zealand’s yellow tail King Fish.
