    Ok so what would be your guys pick of baits for targeting ele’s, and more importantly are they being caught casting to the horizon or in very close ie very short casts? Is there anything special that you guys do to target them or is it pretty much if they are there they will take a bait? Am trying to work out some options for targeting them here in Marlborough.

    I reckon if they’re around, you’ll catch em HLS. Same techniques used for rig work well: crabs, prawns, squid, tuatua all work. Went out Thursday afternoon/evening to Bayleys, eles were practically jumping on the hook. Caught twelve big females, all released except one tail wrapped. Guy next to me also caught a few. Went out last night, same place, same time, and blanked. Mind you only had a couple of hours last night. As for distance I don’t think it matters too much: on the steep shingle beaches I normally cast as far as I can, but I’m just a gentle flicker, none of this running up style that some of them do, using 30lb braid on a 13ftr. If night fishing the shallow sandy beaches north of chch small casts into the gutters/channels at night on a low tide works well. Hve been told a rather expensive black creature works primo, but fk that I say!

    Fished down the spit hard from 6am-1pm and managed 1 ele … it was freshly scarred from mating , so it’s quite likely they were out there but busy .
    I also foul hooked a fresh egg casing …a first for me …

    We got a few bites during the day , likely kahawai as schools passed us by …caught one
