    Elmo and I fished it .maybe others I didnt recognise ….
    Oh , there was 1 member present , in the form of a photo in a magazine laying on a table as a giveaway …

    An ugly little fella named Greg with a rig taken at Bayleys ..lol

    The beach was barron for most of the day ….a mate of mine led the comp for near 4 hrs with a crab FFS …

    I caught maybe 15 crabs ….not a single bite …my mate caught a bloody spotty …and only just missed a prize ..

    A skate won it ….same with the juniors ….
    A doggy 2nd
    A 330ish mm rig “probably a schoolie seeing the limited knowledge of the measurers” 3rd
    Mullet took 4-8th ….
    Juniors – 2-7th were mullet …a crab 8th

    I’d hazard to guess that less than 20 fish were caught for the day for 216 fisherman …

    I’d be mega impressed with a single gurnard off that beach ….let alone 20 odd …
    Conceivable they were taken trawling many miles off the coast …

    the gurnard at bayleys had been filleted not dumped..whoever did the dumping near timaru should be shot..wankers..they need to bring in jail sentences for that shit..instead of the slap on the hand they get at the moment..the laws governing fisherys in this country are a joke….honestly.sweet hipp..how long are you up in the sounds for??and what part of it??i want to go up next week but will keep an eye on the weather reports..also have to fix the window on my car..and need to satisfy my moki addiction first haha hopefully i can get a few before next week then i will be satisfied to move on to another species..went out this morning at 4am..nothing for a while then a red cod..next cast got a big ass wrasse..thought it was a moki untill i got it into the breakers..then the moki came on the bite at 6am..stole my baits for a while then managed to hook one..just a wee one of 40cm but scrappy as..then the wind came up hard and fast and essentialy ended the fishing..bit of a shame but i guess its better than amberly crab fishing competitions haha..will post pick later..pan fried red cod and moki for lunch..yumyum
