    Thanks Duckman, yes might try again, passed by Napenape about 3 weeks ago and had a cast early one morning, but nothing. Had a good take but didn’t hook up. Are longer casts better rather than just past the breakers?

    i don’t think it really matters, i’m a shocker and go for big casts, but just think if the fish are there they will find the bait hopefully before the doggies and crabs

    looks like its shaping up to be a good season ffp,they took a long time to come on the boil last year.went up to kaikoura for the weekend to target the kahawai..fished the beach friday night,a sevengiller a bunch of skate and carpet sharks and a kahawai was the result.spent sat and sunday spinning got about a hundred kahawai between me and a mate on lite trout gear and 6lb braid..super fun,managed a salmon aswel only went 4lb but i wont be complaining when i eat it.my mate also hooked and dropped a salmon around the 11lb mark and i dropped one aswel.

    Managed my first ele and a small rig the other night at Taumutu on whole cooked prawn. What bait do you all use for eles?
    Baits were on a 5/0 mutsu sabiki rig.

    i tried yesterday eve aswel beemer..had a good hit just before dusk but it didnt stick..my rod buckled hard over and sprung back up.might try again this eve..it definitely didnt help that a dirty fukin trawler went past about 800 mdters off the beach just as we were setting up..headed toward the rakaia.took photos and footage of the kunt so i can report it.couldnt see a name or ntmber on the boat tho.anyone know if there regs have changed?i thought it was a 3km sanction and they have a so called self imposed 5km limit.
