Gotten back from my Kaikoura trip.
Got there around 5pm Saturday night, wind was strong sending a series of large chops under the new wharf.. After a hour or so I had enough and moved to the Old Wharf which was calm. After a while at the old wharf the wind changed direction and I retreated back to the New Wharf which was now calm.
I quickly landed two big red cod, and a while later a small one. The water was dirty…. Watched 20 mins of the rugby then went back to the wharf until 11pm for nothing. Then went over to the marina wharf where the water was clean but caught nothing. Stopped fishing at mid-night.
I think we need a incoming tide at night for Moki.
(Sunday was a very calm day but did no land based fishing).
