Hello all. Had a few posts and thought I should put some key facts about me.

Name: James
Yak fishing experience: about a year now
Fishing experience: 30 years (I started at 3 off the wharf and have never looked back)
Yaks: Started with the Cobra fish n dive, I've still got it and use it when I go land based fishing with mates - you can store every thing including the kitchen sink and 8 rods with reels through the main hatch. Now graduated to the new Prowler elite (ruddered) and just pimping it now. I'm naming this one and am just about settled for "SILENT ASSASSIN".
Pimping additions on her (now and in the next few weeks)
- scotty triple
- eagle fisheasy sounder
- custom made insulated and sealed fish bag (photo's to come)
- fitted with cobra delux seat (nice strong full plastic back)
- ruddered
- Rods and reels used- Shimmy 6500 baitrunner with 12kg line on kilwell spin jig line tip rod, abu muscle tip with tica baitrunner spooled with fireline and floro (for sp's), pen jig master with 15kg sufix on shimmy taipan rod - yes you may think over kill but I've busted off a heap and I set my drags by scales - I'm luck enough to live in jurasic park (AKA NZ).

goals for the year - 20lb snapper -anyhow anywhere, 1m+ kingfish off the yak.

If you fullas or fullasese are over in NZ I've a spare yak and mates who want to fish.
regards JB

Welcome to the boards JB,

Good luck on those fish aspirations for the year ahead, from what I have seen of NZ fishing you will do it.

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish. If you are desperate for the old content of this particular post, it is available below base64 encoded and bzip2 compressed.

Welcome JB. I don't think you will have too much trouble satisfying your wish list given the fishing paradise where you live. Keep up the reports and be nice to the sheep and our rugby team.

Catch ya Scott

I agree, JB - very generous offer. Haven't made it out of the country myself yet but if I find myself in NZ, I'll try & look you up. :wink:

Occy, the coromandel is fishing mecca. Its the place where yellow tail king fish take your livie and you end up in Agrentina 8) Theirs a few places up that way on the right day that are stuff you'd tell your grand kids about. Its also snapper central most times. Even if you don;t get to go yak fishing the coromandel is great for land based game.
regards
