June 2014 Club Night – LegaSea

Come on down and listen to Scott Macindoe – the man behind LegaSea. His passion is to make certain that the Vision of ‘more fish in the water for future generations’ is not something that we just talk about – he wants it to become our REALITY. He is an active environmentalist, a good fisherman, a talented networker, a successful businessman, a green-fingered gardener & a loving family man. His mind is often miles ahead of the others in the room – it is his clarity, insightfulness and ability to think laterally that are his real diamonds. His energy is infectious and his passion is inspiring.

This is a night not to be missed!

May 2014 Club Night – Wave Dancer!!

May 2014 – Wave Dancer!!

Have you ever fished the Hauraki Gulf work-ups? It’s an amazing feeling being in the middle of a frenzy feeding of gannets, dolphins and whales as they smash the pilchard schools.
Right on the doorsteps of the Waikato region is the Hauraki Gulf – one of the best Snapper fisheries in the world. Join us at our May Club Night where the Wave Dancer team will introduce us to the action packed world of fishing for Snapper and Kingfish in the Hauraki Gulf on light but powerful softbait rods.

Come on down and listen to Grant Bittell (a ‘workup specialist, a Wave Dancer captain and a partner in Catch fishing tackle):
– Learn how Wave Dancer finds fish using birds, dolphins and other indictors.
– How to “read” a work up (they are not all created equal), and how to effectively fish them.
– The tackle that is used on Wave Dancer, including NZ’s hottest new lures, Catch BetaBug, and Catch Kabura. Learn the best way to fish these lures.
– Learn about the history of the Inchiku and Kabura lures, and what makes them so highly effective at catching almost all New Zealand fish species.

April 2014 Club Night – Ocean Angler

April 2014 – Ocean Angler

Join Paul Senior, Ocean Angler and Jason Clark, Top Catch Hamilton, for our April Club Night. Paul is the face behind the Ocean Angler range of products in New Zealand, and he is the leading exponent of soft bait fishing and Jitterbug Inchiku lures in Auckland.

Paul will talk to us about the Z-man range of soft baits, the new Light Bulb Jigheads with UV eyes, Jitterbugs Inchiku lures and the Ocean Angler Powerflex rods.
Learn how snapper feed and the techniques for catching them when they’re either in the channels or in mid-water work-ups. Paul will confess how his wife outguns him every time, ‘dragging for snapper’.

Get some practical tips on how to read your sounder. Find out where the big snapper are in relation to your boat. Understand the tides, the effect of the moon and wind direction.
So, if you’re after that XOS snapper, or want to take on a kingfish with light gear.

March 2014 Club Night – Shark Night!!

March 2014 – Shark Night!!

March Club Night – a night not to be missed! Join us at the Waikato Sport Fishing Club Rooms on Grantham St, Hamilton and listen to New Zealand’s very own Riley Elliott, a world renowned expert on sharks, and listen to him as he tells us about his adventures around the world.

Riley now runs the world’s largest blue shark tagging programme; he has led the charge with the NZ Shark Alliance, successfully achieving a ban on all shark finning in New Zealand by 2016. He has worked at, and later managed, the Oceans Research Great White Station in South Africa. Sharks are extremely vulnerable to overexploitation; Riley’s efforts are going a long way to ensuring 500 million years of shark evolution isn’t undone in one generation!
