Re: Fishing in Akaroa


I used to do alot of fishing off the wharf in akaroa. We only really ever caught red cod, rays, skate, mullet, dogfish etc Night was always better and you’d get occasional baracouta under the lights. we got a few salmon as well on lures. But last time I went there we didnt even get a bite.

I think I know that Wainui Spot. Me and some mates went there once. We walked across to an island at low tide and fished the incoming. Were plagued by wrasse, mate got a nice blue cod. There was a nice deep drop off right where we were. Would try there again sometime.
