PostSubject: The Auckland boat show   Fri May 19, 2017 6:56 am

Took myself to the Auckland off the water boat show, (there is an on the water one for launches and yatchts) It is held at Aucklands racecourse and showgrounds just south of Auckland central. The show is held in 5 large halls and 2 multy tent complexes plus outside stands over 4 days. Entry $20 (10 quid)
A couple of photos would not load




This is the gate prize for some lucky B









A few bargains, but I overheard a tackle store owner say that his stand was costing him $20.000 for the 4 days. I only bought a few small items as no one stocked the reel I wanted

For Stevo and others.
Apart from trout and salmon there is not much coarse fishing done in NZ, we have rudd, tench, perch, koi, small catfish and some carp. They are all labeled noxiouse and it is illegal to move them, and are supposed to be killed if caught. They were all introduced before there were controlls in place, as were rabbits, hares, possums, stoats, hedgehogs, 5 types of deer, thar, wallabies 3 types of rat, mice, humans and probably a few more. Just about all of these have become expensive problems for natural NZ.
Before the first humans (Polynesians) arrived here about 700 years ago, the largest mammal was a small bat, birds and insects ruled.
The rudd I have caught here are vibrant red and silver with near black backs. The koi carp are in plague numbers and up to 15KG in the rivers and swamps just south of Auckland.

What about "Kilroy" he was 'ere,was he there? lol! lol!

Sounds like the catch and release policy we have here is just the opposite in NZ.
I know they took Rabbits to OZ initially to feed the new settlers,I've been out in the bush in South Australia
at night with a spotlight,the rabbits were like a carpet in places.
Saw a paddock(field) full of trapdoor spiders,they looked like broken brown glass.
I said to the two Aussies I was with,why have they dumped broken glass out here in the bush?
They took me over for a closer look.
When it was breeding season for the big Bluey crabs (big red crabs)as the waves broke on the beach
there were crabs with their claws sticking upwards for as far as the eye could see.Not a good time for a swim,
too risky for tackle losses. lol!
