Fished kaikoura over the weekend. Decent amount of kahawai around got a few on the spinner when the schools came down the beach. Fished mostly at the railway station beach, caught skate, red cod, conger, carpet sharks and dogfish so still the winter species around. Did hear there was a few seven gillers caught though. Probably give it another month for the fishing to really improve, the wharf seemed dead and the light that usually lights up the water at night is broken.
