Reply To: Otago Fishing


Hi Terry, the surfcasting around nth otago is only much good around xmas time, about a month and a half either side, we target elephant fish but have caught grey boy’s, rig, kahwai, seven gillers & skate along the way. This year has been ordinary although we had a good night at waianakarua last evening.I use my surfcaster for all my saltwater landbased fishing including the moeraki lighthouse.I use a 13.5 ft rod with a large eggbeater which i have spooled with 50lb braid, i normally use about 60lb trace and size 6/0 hooks with a breakaway sinker.
