out deep into 200m plus..they also make migrations up the coast..they dont spawn in deep water all there spawning is done in shallow coastal waters were food is more abundant for there pups and the survival rate is better.15/07/2014 at 10:20 pm #25080smells like fishParticipant
so rig and trout fuck off during winter at least the blue cod still hang around.Its probably a bit different down on the south coast than it is up you ways.Do moki leave as well?Im pretty sure gurnard stay put too.15/07/2014 at 11:23 pm #25081shark slayerParticipant
most of the adult spawning population of moki head up north over winter..however school size moki(2kg) and the odd big moocher are still around over winter but they stop feeding close to shore and are generaly found in 10m plus of water around reefs..gurnard leave the shore around the east coast of the north canterbury area..over winter..do you get gurnard off the beach down your way?15/07/2014 at 11:56 pm #25082smells like fishParticipant
na have not caught a gurnard off the beaches down here.Im off on a fishing trip to frazer island off the coast of north queensland on Friday for a couple of weeks so I will get my fair share of string pullers soon.Went there last year and was hooking up almost everycast with different species coming in .Esp liked catching a fish called tailer which fight better than ky.
Looking forward to the sea run trout down here mid august onwards too.20/08/2014 at 8:02 am #25136AnonymousInactive
