I Fished east of Temuka today hoping for few red cod for Tea, ended up catching heaps of Dogfish and nothing else07/06/2013 at 6:05 am #23459
Fished browns beach this afternoon, Heaps of dogfish around as soon as the bait hit the water it was hooked up. Got about 80 between me and a mate before giving up. Might give it few weeks and then the Red cod might start showing up.07/06/2013 at 9:32 am #23461

Been a long time since I posted on here so thought I might post a report.
Wet a few baits at Clifford bay this arvo. Sea was dirty but relatively calm , slight nor – nor west breeze. Fishing was slow and the results were two good tope between 4 to 5 ft which were in very good nick and a welcome surprise for this time of year. Both released.
Nothing for the next two hours or so then after a small run an average size skate was beached,also released.
No Red Cod , small Tope or Spiky dogs making an appearance yet.
I was hoping for some Red Cod fillets for the bait bin but must be still a bit early for them here yet.18/06/2013 at 6:38 am #23488elmo22Participant

you don’t need a chilly bin for your fish just leave in the wind and that will freeze them lol21/06/2013 at 6:31 am #23493shark slayerParticipant

Fished for an hour or so at Caroline bay this afternoon, Pretty quite with just dogfish around Heap of weed and debris on the sea floor from the last southerly storm..11/07/2013 at 10:32 pm #23542
I had that problem not long ago surfcasting at Kina Beach near Nelson. The water was clear but every time I wound in the sinker and hooks where covered in heaps of sea lettuce. Very annoying and impossible to fish really.
