Re: Fishing in Timaru – Does anyone recommend the place?


Thanks for that guys, I guess I will need to learn to love sharks, always seen them as a nuisance up north, are dogfish, rig etc. good eating?

Do you reckon it’s too early to bother just yet? Everyone says the fishing is best october-march but I’m keen to have a go now the weather is warming a bit.

At some stage I think I might try my luck for some Moki around the breakwater, maybe Patiti point, that reef system looks promising. Can’t afford a license or much fuel at the moment otherwise I would probably be chasing trout. So the closer to town the better.

I’m used to boat fishing for snapper north of Auckland, so I’m looking forward to learning a completely different fishery.
