Re: Surfcasting In Timaru


Went out to Rangitata again last night, and till about 10am today. Caught loads of Dogfish last night. Was a lot of bird activity and some massive work ups from around 8AM onwards, thousands of birds working massive schools of big kahawai, all down the beach at one stage. There were so many some were beaching themselves. I casted out a small spinner and caught 5 overall, all really good size. Hooked one massive one, took loads of line and I could hardly stop it, then lost it as it was getting closer into the waves. Note this was a really light, really old spoon type lure with rusty hooks, was lucky to cast it 10 meters. Gotta buy some proper lures and try for some more kahawai next time.
