I went out tonight to Browns Beach near Timaru.
Very heavy surf but pretty clean, lost a little bit of gear due to gravel/wave action.
I ended up going to a 6oz breakaway and that wa able to put me past the breakers.
We caught a few tope and some dogfish. Not much was really happening. I wanted to catch a rig but I hear there are a few tricks to that and as a beginner I havent learnt them yet!
Great night out, cleaned up a bit of rubbish off the beach, a few broken bottles etc.
Better than sitting at home doing nothing!
Next time we go out ill take the camera for a few pictures.
