In this guest blog post from Paddle Guy we take a look at a different perspective on mothership kayak fishing.
Exploring the concept of kayak fishing using a trailer boat as a mothership

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

With limited time available to get out on the lake I headed out early on day 1 and stayed… more

This kayak fishing video trip report comes from North Shore local Lee Kennedy.. Lee captured this awesome footage while fishing out of his Profish 400 on Sunday "up North" ;-) Winter snapper fishing seems to be firing over many regions and this trip was no exception!

After an early start to catch the change of light action, Lee lands a nice feed of snapper for the table. Slow jigs orange seem to be doing the biz & zman softbaits, Lee is using Quantum cabo reel and okuma xfactor rod. 

On the jig again… more
