    I have a 14 foot Jarvis walker revenge. Not that sure what the line on it is. Whatever the whacked on there in the shop. My knots arenít amazing but Iím getting there and Iím targeting basically anything thatíll bite so far! Iíve tried a few spots so far with not a lot of luck. Took the kids out to wainui beach but the swells were pretty big and I couldnít cast over them. Iím basically looking to get a few tips from someone who knows what theyíre doing and hopefully meet some good folk on the way

    build yourself an air cannon .use 50mm pressure pipe for the pressure tank with a 50mm ball valve with reducer down to 25mm pressure pipe as the barrel. mine is a j shape with the main part of the pressure chamber at the bottom and comes up and around then the valve .fancy ones have a rod holder as well so the rod points in the same direction as the barrel. it has a air valve same as a car tyre in the cap end to pump it up I use either a 12v compressor or a large bike pump that can pump up to 110psi I just stick a bit of paper down the barrel then lower the baited hook and sinker onto this then just aim and open valve as fast as possible.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
