I went down to the Wairau Bar this afternoon. Fished from around 2pm-5:30pm.
Caught 1 red cod, did not see any other fish caught. In the general area there must of been about 20-25 people fishing.
On the coast about 1km from the mouth I did a bit of surfcasting. After about 15 minutes a Seal turned up so attempted to feed it, but it was scared. Left the beach and returned to the bay.
Tried Berkley maggots and worms with no luck.
