Well done the comp and I caught sweet F-A. it starte at 9am which as it fell was out going/deadlow tide. for about 3 hrs the biggest fish(as it was going by length) was a herring at 40ish centimetres.08/01/2008 at 9:36 am #9821St_PaulParticipant
I had a crack too got nothing worth measuring (1 tiny doggie that was foul hooked)
Hey Ninj@ did you notice they hads been berleying the beach with animal fat? it was all left on the beach as the tide emptied out in the morning and then sat in the sun going rancid until the tide came back up. I reckon thats why the fishing was such crap.
Note to anyone running a fishing contest: don’t use fat as berley, buy some sacks of salmon feed from a stock food supplier or get the buggres to donate it!08/01/2008 at 3:31 pm #9834
Hey NiNj@, had any other luck with the salmon so far? I’ve tried a couple of times at mackintoshes but no luck so far.08/01/2008 at 3:41 pm #9836MiliwolfParticipant

Kahawai on bait or spinning? Me and a mate keen to catch something vaguely edible. Tried trolling along in my kayak down the kaiapoi and towards kairaki, got a couple of small kahawai but nothing to write home about…08/01/2008 at 10:44 pm #9861
