Went to Lyttleton again today, this time fished around by the fishing platform they have there.
Literally about 1 minute after my first cast I got one of those smallish Kaiwhai (not big but not tiny).
However that was it, got quite a few dogfish and that was it.
So have 3 herrings, two Kaiwhai and a spottie for cod bait next weekend. Will the cod show however not being winter yet??
