Finally got out to the beach this morning. Got to wakanui just before 7am not long after hooked an ele but lost it in the breakers. Had a few more hits but just wasn’t hooking up. Got another ele before 8am had it right in the breakers when it decided to head back out to sea so I let it run for a while before the hook pulled. Fresh crab baits back out but after half an hour and the baits coming back the same as I casted them out I packed up. Lots of dolphin action just before they stopped biting don’t know if that had anything to do with it, was groups of them right in the breakers and ones jumping clear of the water further out. Not a good start to the season for me nearly the end of december and I’ve hardly been out, I think my last elephant fish and rig were October or early november..
Anyone heard dates for the kaikoura and amberly comps yet?
