They say the best accessory a person can have is their smile, here are our top 5 accessories that keep us smiling.
 The Viking Profish Reload Tackle Pod
A world first! How often do you hear that? Well if you are a kiwi you hear it quite a lot actually. We’re a pretty ingenuitive bunch of people that come up with some brilliant ideas and this is one of them.  A completely removable pod that houses your battery, sounder, transducer and a crazy amount of tackle. It’s so cool that you can prep all… more

Coromandel trip report with Coromandel trip report with "Milkey"

"Haku gets a new owner"
I sold my Profish 440 named “Haku” to my mate John from Hamilton. It took a long 6 months before we got the chance to get out and for him to catch his first fish off the kayak. So we headed to the Coromandel Peninsula and by mid-morning he had 2 pannies in the back and he was having a ball in the near glass like conditions.

We were having some technical difficulties with his fishfinder so decided to turn it off and use my Lowrance on my kayak to put him onto fish. And fish there… more

Landing fish on your kayak, Gaff, Glove, or Net? Landing fish on your kayak, Gaff, Glove, or Net?

(Destined for the table, a quick mouth/jaw shot will have this snapper under control and ready for de-hooking and stowing on ice. Using the appropriate technique will minimize any chance of comedy or tragedy when landing your catch.)
Gaff, Glove, or Net?
Fishing from kayaks has always created the potential for adventure, comedy, and drama. Aside from all the usual possibilities arising from paddling a skinny piece of plastic or composite (or a piece of canvas over a frame if you’re a traditionalist), the biggest… more

Shakedown cruise - too many snapper! Shakedown cruise - too many snapper!

Kayak fishing trip report from Stephen Tapp - Having spent a couple of evenings fitting out the “expedition” Tackle Pod for the Reload (I also have a “lightweight” Tackle Pod – more on this soon) it was time for a shakedown cruise. The idea was to spend some time on the water testing the compatibility of the new Simrad NSS7 evo2 and iCOM marine VHF mounted in close proximity. It would also be a great opportunity to target my first hapuku for the season.
The pre-dawn launch went without… more

Winter kayak fishing session at Army Bay Winter kayak fishing session at Army Bay

Guest trip report from -  In this kayak fishing trip I have fitted the Lowrance Elite 4 HDI to my Profish Tackle Pod and plan to use it to find a feed of snapper for the weekend. Rough plan, head out from Army Bay trolling a hard body bibbed lure over the shallows. Then target the shallows for big snapper living in the weed using a combination of strayline baits and casting soft plastics.

There is a lot of foul ground along this coastline which holds plenty of fish… more
