    Hey stuart to be honest theres no real secret to surf fishing for salmon all really comes down to using correct ticer weight and the speed you retrieve it..for more info just google kaikoura salmon.. yes sw is a good wind for whale watch beach,but if you have no luck there then follow beach road through kaikoura heading north and just on the outskirts of town you will see the road branchs off and changes to hapuku road follow that road down a couple of k and you will see beach access just across the railway line (sawdust pit) its a great beach for surf casting and spinning off and the bonus is its not far from kaikoura. Good luck

    Hi All,

    been doing a bit of surfcasting this year so thought i would join up and see what others are up to.

    Did catch a salmon in kk a few weeks ago which was exciting as it was on my sons small rod.

    went over to birdlings last weekend and caught a small cod.

    with the reports of KK will have to look at going up there this weeknd and see whats happening.

    most were on lure, only lobbing them about 20m and they got smashed as soon as you started to wind, we pretty much got a kahawai every cast land one release it cast and hook up straight away, every cast there were loads of fish chasing the lure and boiling on the water, never seen anything like it befire, well to that extreme at least

    i used to live up kaikoura way for ten years of my childhood,my first shore based fishing experiences were chasing the kahawai schools..back then the kahawai schools were like this years run time 5.the water would be black from the shore to 200 meters out and the schools would be half a k wide..then purse seiners came along and wiped them out..since the ban they have come back and this years run is the best for a long time..its really good to see.

    Not much to report from the outing. Caught 1 small perch. Got busted off after a good smash but went straight through the line as well so no joy. 1 chap down the beach had some goodsize kahawai. Bit more practice required

    kaikoura was pretty rough today..got heaps of kahawai south of the kowai..they are a cool fish hls its a shame so manz people are ignorant to there qualities..went to my salmon spot..hooked one after 6 casts got it right in close in a big wave then it sucked out and i tried to walk towards it trying to minimise the tension but the hook pulled..it was about 6lb was pretty gutted but thats fishing! gave up after that..to rough.
