    Not a bad effort Rig_slasher, You’ve got more in a few weeks than Ive got in the last 3 years, never really done that well Surfcasting but always keep going back in hope of catching some.

    Ive never heard of elephants around the breakwater, I might have to try there at some stage and target some Moki too. I got an Elephant off the rocks around Caroline bay a couple of years ago but some guy told me that they arnt normally caught there.

    thought you had been a bit quite beameer..4 13lbers..damn! hope you put a couple back..i got carried away last year and kept 20 for the season wich is pretty disgusting..mainly because i had the previous season off due to injury and i gwnt a bit carried away..this year i will limit myself and wont target them as much..apart from the fact that you shouldnt take many because of there spawning cycle i also hate killing them because they are just so damn cool and radical looking! i get guilt trips everytime i take one haha maybe im soft..anyway went out last night..just on dark i got hit but no hookup..uh oh its gonna be another one of those nights..but then a short while later i got smashed and the line went slaak..quickly wound it up fast and then felt the weght come on.. fuck yea! then my mates rod went over and we were both hooked up..i had an epic battle probably the best ele fight i have ever had..mine went 15lb my mates was 13..i tried to release mine as i hate taking big cows but she was to far gone after the big fight and had to be kept..we had a few more hits and my mate landed another around 9lb wich was released before calling it a night.

    Sounds like both the Kaikoura and Amberly fishing comps are on the same day this time around , with the tide being outgoing ..

    These guys really need to sort their shit out if they expect good turn outs …

    I never really understand why they make the two competitions clash so often. I suppose they are trying to get them in during the holiday period but they could still be a week apart.
