Took the The fiery ginga to a little spot I sometime fish in Tennyson inlet on Sunday, was a long day. Picked him up around 7:30, and started fishing shortly after 10am. The weather was mixed, warm morning which turned to rain, and after we were soaked it slowly cleared to a perfect evening. The fishing was rather slow, with only Kahawai, Mackerel, Barracouta, Mullet and a few Snapper being caught right on dark. I had live baits out most of the time, one got spooked quite badly by something which created a bow wave but that little else happened.
Think I would do a few shore based kingie missions while waiting to recover from my various health aliments which have been preventing me from kayaking.30/12/2013 at 6:54 pm #24377

South of timaru Pareora
Me n s.s were fishing there the other day in the nor wester and the freezing works guys dumped a big skip of sheep offal and skins in their paddock beside where we were fishing
Since wed had many beverages the night before the smell of the works was heaps better than what they dumped i saw the color drain from ss face and we were outta there.
Seems like the surf beaches blanked this w.e down here saw a salmon caught at the orari mouth but other than that a couple ky
And small mullet
Just now it started pissing down.
Time to get the salmon gear out
And put the surf casters away me thinks05/01/2014 at 5:09 am #24393
[i:dfwc8rsh]The first kahawai.[/i:dfwc8rsh]
This pesky bird wasted a lot of fishing time while I released it.
Two fish landed!
I was driving along the highway north of Kaikoura recently when I spotted a huge work-up right on the breaker-line just across the road. For once I had a rod close at hand. I stopped and grabbed the rod before running across the road to the beach, trying to thread the line up through the guides at the same time – more or less. There were birds everywhere. I haven’t seen such an enormous work-up right on the beach for years. The sea was almost flat calm.
First cast landed a good kahawai; second cast landed a dam bird. The ungrateful bugger kept trying to peck me as I untied and released him (or her).
Third cast; another kahawai. This one got off.
On the forth cast I landed a second kahawai.
The school was moving northwards up the coast at a good walking pace so that was it. Enormous fun!05/01/2014 at 5:31 am #24395

maori fishing calender said bad .Tides were coming in and weather was looking ok so went out anyway.When I arrived a guy was pulling in a 15 odd pounder shark so was looking hopeful.
Had a tail wind so could cast 80-90 m .First cast got a greyboy then 4 more then a small rig and a first while surfcasting got a flounder.
Kept 1 20 pound greyboy (skinned and frozen ) and the flounder ,breakfast today.
