I thought it is time to allow a little more communication and interaction on fishingreminder.
I have been getting a lot of great feedback from you guys and fishingreminder has become a useful tool for many anglers.
To make all feedback, suggestions and frequently asked questions more visible to everyone I decided to set up a forum.
I hope this way we all get to know each other a little better.
To get things rolling, please start a new thread in this forum category and tell us a little bit about yourself.
My friend Jen and I have been fishing twice a week for the last 12 years or so and absolutely love it, can't get enough. The cold weather doesn't stop us from fishing, in fact its better fishing in the cold as you can rug up rather than in the hot sun, very invigorating. My best catch to date is a 4.8kg snapper in Westernport and a 2.075kg Aust salmon off Gunnamatta surf beach. Surf fishing isn't my forte, but now I've learned heaps and so enjoy fishing there.
This dull and wet weather is very depressing but Spring is just around the corner, I take this opportunity to fix up rigs/rods, go on fishing forums etc ready for the big catch later on.
Hi to all the club members at the Southern Peninsula Angling Club, tomorrow night 16th Aug is AGM night, hope to see you all there. New members more than welcome. Lovely bunch of people with lots of knowledge.
ciao to all,
Welcome to the forum. Great to hear from you and the really awesome picture you uploaded to the gallery. Hope you'll catch some big ones when the weather turns better. I'm waiting for spring too
Im steve and im an alcoholic,oops thats right this is the fishing site lol,well i live north of auckland (New Zealand)and fish for snapper,trevs,cod,kingfish and such like from the rocks mostly,always keen on a reason to get out there so if in the area drop us a line :laugh:
Welcome to the Fishingreminder Forum. Maybe we could go out together one day.
I'm normally fishing from a Kayak but really want to learn more about rock fishing.
Maybe you could show me a few tricks sometime
If you have the sort of addiction that I think you have you would be familiar with the WHITE Horse Inn somewhere in Auckland ....near Papakura ? ? ? not sure. Apparently the place is true to label. A bar tend quoted that the Elephant Beer which I was hooking into (reminded me of Keg RESCH"s) it was somewhat of a strong brew .....but I am a big boy ... however I think I must have missed something (in trying to translate, I am familiar with 'FESH & CHEPS' but there must be more to the Kiwi language that that) did he tell me ?
He apparently witnessed my regular disposal of quite a few tipples, .... must admit in the ensuing haze that developed I do remember (I think) the words so eloquently spoken by him.
.....to quote: "as I said if you drink enough of Elephant Beer you will feel as though the whole f-----g herd has trampled on you.
Why did someone not tell me ? I would tell them about Cardiff Black Beer and what it can launch if we were in NSW.
Antidote: Found to be early to the cot, bottle cold water near the bed, three or four Dispirin, pull shutters down, DO NOT DISTURB on the door. And KIP>
Hey, my name's Alf. I grew up fishing in Manitoba, Canada. After not picking up a fishing rod for over 25 years, my wife and I took up fishing this year. We bought a canoe and rigged it up for "comfort". we love it! We haven't caught anything large, nor have we caught many, since fishing in our lakes wasn't the greatest this season. Nevertheless, there is a lot to be said for being on a calm lake in a canoe all day....whether you're catching fish or not. It's awesome!! Cheers!
Hi Alf. I absolutely agree. Being out there in a canoe or kayak is just fantastic.
I love the calmness and peace. Hope fishingreminder will be useful for planning your adventures.
By the way - you got some stunning pictures. Thanks for sharing them.
Would like to go to Singapore again No plans for the near future though.
But will let you know when I get a chance to come over and we can go out together. I like shore fishing but I'm not very good at it.
Perhaps you could show me some tricks.
I'm mainly kayak fishing with soft baits.
Sorry for taking so long to approve your posts.
I was on a short holiday without internet access. Thats why it took a bit longer.
All forums are moderated to avoid spam postings (which I'm getting a lot of)
I'll add a new feature soon that will make it easier for seasoned members to post.
Thanks for you patience.
By the way I'm looking for people who would be interested in helping me to moderate the forums. Let me know if anyone is interested in helping out a bit.
gidday everyone i'm from sunny napier on the east coast of new zealand. just got back into fishing and am hooked .lol pun intended. i am a surfcaster and quite enjoy hitting the beaches and rocks for a bit of nature and some solitude, oh and the fish. hope to get to know everyone on here and give and recieve some good advice
Welcome to the forum. Good to hear you'r back into fishing
Napier is the place to be I love it down there - too bad my current job binds me to Auckland.
I guess its great for Kayak fishing down there as well.
hey markt yeah its a wonderfull part of the country i have seen a few kayaks heading out to pania and offshore so i imagine it would be the fishing hasnt been too great lately but is on the increase managing a kawahai each time but planing on hunting me a snap or three. in regards to kayak fishing is iot expensive to get into?
yeah can get a bit expensive - but only if you want to get a fully rigged fishing kayak like an ocean prowler.
You could always start with a cheap 500$ kayak and improvise with rod holders, etc.
And then upgrade to a better kayak later if you like it.
Good thing is that you have no fuel cost and at the same time you get fit
