Reply To: Surfcasting at Kaikoura


Think I would go down to the wharf next weekend (if the weather is decent) and throw in heaps of of burley and try to get a real feeding frenzy going.

During the day, I might even get my surfcasters out and try for a shark from the beach. The water is always so tempting looking down there so I put on my wetsuit and jump in to hunt butterfish. But going for a swim is also a good chance to collect a range of shellfish to use for bait.

If the tide is right I might even walk out to the end of the ‘reef’ in limestone bay. At low tide you can get a good distance out there. Once there I would start using my burley. There are heaps of Butterfish and Moki around the rocks in this area.
