Re: 2012 surf catches Spring/summer


I had a great day with the kids fishing from the wharf at Lyttleton catching bait for our / my next big day out. I had forgotten the great fun that you can have with the water full of fish all feeding around the hook.

I brought the kids a small spin set each and they managed to get a couple each, with plenty of help.

I was surprised that with only one fishing point that there were so many fish to be had, and that after 12 odd years away from fishing the same tricks we used back then still worked.

Now I need to get away to Birdlings flat with my prawns and my mullet to see what I can catch. Any suggestions as to which part of the beach is more productive?
