Sn6 Ep6: Offshore Reefs

The boys are on a tour through the Bay of Plenty – and there’s fish life everywhere they go.

Milan and Nathan are fishing the offshore reefs in the Bay of Plenty. Wherever they go, they find that the reefs are packed full of hungry fish and there are bend rods on deck from morning till night. Some fish come to the boat easily, but there are also big and angry ones down there that have no interest in ending up as dinner.

EQUIPMENT

Launching the 701 Tristram Offshore is made easy with the Enduro trailer. No shortcuts or weak points can be found on these trailers built by perfectionist. Coupled with a Balex automatic boat loader and life is complete.

Simrad makes sure Milan and Nathan are fishing where the fish are and they always have a 100% clear image of what’s underneath.

Epirp distress beacons are best for boats while PLB distress beacons can be used for paddling or other small water craft, but they need to be able to float and operate in water.
