Hi Had seven days days in Kaikoura, tried fishing for Kahawai for 1st time, 1st time hooked 3 landerd 2 put them back ( put all back except one which we smoked and made into fish pie ) 2nd trip Hooked 4 landerd 3 plus 2 Barracouta, went out following morning with my wife we landerd between 11 and 15, useing trout rods with 8 ib braid, we didnt keep any as we where coming home next day.
I had heard hoe much fun they are to catch on light gear it was a blast.
Does anyone have any info on Kahawai fishing around CH CH and Kaikoura, also best ways to cook them.
Thanks OdinBoy
