Default My Fishing Gear

So i can plan ahead, i was wondering whether i'd be allowed to bring my sea fishing gear with me or not. Anybody know? It's not a lot of gear, so if i have to pay for it to be de contaminated, it might not be worth it. Anyway, anybody know?

Should be fine if it's clean and dry.

Simon - I'm hoping to buy a motor/fishing boat when I come over in September to fish off Auckland so personally I think the fishing is great (compared to Bridlington ).

Here's last weeks report:

""The snapper arrived late and are staying late. And on Wednesday this week a boat trolling for skipjack in relatively shallow water close-in behind Whale Island near Whakatane hooked a 114kg striped marlin.
Normally the school snapper, the schools of surface-feeding kahawai and the anchovies they feed on have gone to deeper waters by the end of April but this year the snapper fishing remains hot in the inner harbour right up as far as Greenhithe and in shallow areas of the Firth of Thames.

John Moran was lucky enough to spend a few days off Great Barrier in the good weather this week, nailing snapper from three to seven kilograms when drift-fishing just off Tryphena Harbour. His group took a wide variety of species, all falling to plastics fished on braid.
The lure must be on or very near the bottom and movement is crucial - but not too much as it gets unrealistic. Short pumps of the rod tip, movement of 10-40cm, is sufficient. Rest and repeat.

Both de Bruyn and TV fishing guru Geoff Thomas worked the back of The Noises during the week, finding fat snapper generally in the 3kg range - perfect eating.

The Rangitoto Channel has slowed, possibly due to fishing pressure and boat traffic. The Motuihe and Sergeant Channels are holding school snapper and kingfish are being taken on live baits around Crusoe Rock.
De Bruyn nailed two marlin close off the Poor Knights in water still at 19.5C earlier in the week and is surprised more people are not fishing what has remained a hot-spot for the past three months. The Whangarei Deep Sea Anglers' Club will record its best season yet.
But farther north the gamefishing has been very patchy, with lots of small marlin and many of them playing with lures then dropping them without striking.
Far North gamefishing this year - you will only do well if you fluke upon a patch of warmer water holding fish and there is no consistency or regular current trails.
On the Manukau, fish are well up the harbour in the Papakura Channel rather than out near the mouth and the Huia Bank.
Snapper in the 30-35cm range are prolific. Some gurnard are being taken as the nights cool but a few more weeks of cold weather should see the snapper move out and the gurnard come in force. Several anglers report tussles with big trevally. These tough scrappers must be played gently or the hook pulls through their soft mouths.""

Sounds good ?

Hi,
hubby uses dead bait...squid seems to get him results but used to fishing ponds in the UK so still keeps throwing them back....DOH! Although I wouldn't know how to prepare one if he bought it home! He goes see fishing and bought his rods with him no problems with customs.
