Well whatever I hooked last time I was up there, my tackle wasn’t up for it even if the swivel didn’t snap I don’t know if I would have landed it or even stopped it before it ran out past the rocks and out to sea. It’s like the fish people catch off the New Brightton Pier, a featureless sandy beach and only 3 or 4 meters deep but people have caught threshers and blue sharks. People have claimed kingfish off the Pier but I’d have to see that to believe it.

The reason I doubt a mako hanging around the kaikoura wharf is I’ve never heard of one off the Pier so possibly they keep to deeper water along with great whites but I guess anything is possible.
