It’s wintertime at Great Barrier Island and the shallows are full of snapper.
Milan and Nathan have taken their kayaks onboard the mothership Savoy, and are all setup to nail some good fish.
Both end up hooking into to some big steam trains and soon finds themselves being towed around by big fish.

Viking Kayaks is the choice for serious kayak fishermen. They are setup to perfection and can be modified in seconds to the style of fishing you are doing.
Milan and Nathan both run Shimano 4000 Stradic’s on Energy Concept rods for their lure fishing for snapper, and Shimano Tranx 300 reel on a Shadow X Nano rod for big kings out of the kayak.
The lifejackets are on when fishing in the kayaks and both guys carry PLB distress beacons that float and work even in water. Milan and Nathan also carry fully charged cellphones in drybags. Safety never ruined a day out on the water.
