Hi Guys,
been chasing the bait abit lately Rakaia has been terrible over the last month ,had a very long spell of large ground swell southerlys ,been out surfcasting from between Smith’s rd all the way to the lake cut ,the other night between 6 rods the guys only caught a few doggies and several small grey boys,the high lite a skate of about 5kg, I fished with premo crab bait …nothing ,have been using it the last four trips and haven’t had one bite.The only sign were several elle heads on the beach out from Maori Church.We later heard they were from the local kontiki boys.
The fishing this side is very poor all round and although I am not superstitious it hasn’t been any good since the recent tragedy at the mouth.
