http://www.metservice.com/marine/surf/birdlings-flat … haha nice little weather info for birdlings flat02/12/2011 at 12:55 am #19593
The swellmap/metservice forecast for birdlings flat is munted.. can’t possibly be almost exactly the same wave size for the next 6 days or so.. (4m+). Was thinking of going for a fish there tomorrow night seeing north of Christchurch isn’t as good an option with a decent NE wind.02/12/2011 at 3:29 am #19594
Was thinking the same thing..Ian can you give us the good oil on conditions out there please?02/12/2011 at 6:21 am #19595151Participant

I have just started doing some surf casting for fishing relief when the rivers are dirty. Had a crack at birdlings last night without success – unless you call being relieved of your bait almost instantly every cast success (crabs????)
Can anyone let me know:
What is more important – tide or time of day?
How far you you need to cast – just behind the breakers of longer the better?
Do you need to be right on ‘spot x’ or can you have a reasonable crack anywhere along the beach?
Cheers in advance.

Hey Ian , that drum looks like a set net drum on the boat and a metal guide thingy on the stern to set the net.I recon that the bastards are coming in close to shore and using their fish finder to see if schools of eles or rig are about.They probably sneak back in the dark to rape and pilage.If they turn off their boat lights you wouldnt even know they were there.Or am I being paranoid.
Bugger it.Lets bring out the rocket launchers and nuke em anyway.The beach seems very quiet at the moment .(apart from mizz lips).09/12/2011 at 10:36 pm #19712
side on you can see its a set net drum(winch)why is the material draped over it?–one guess to hide it!Now I could find a good use for longline torpedos off the beach full of semtex..lol or rocket launchers..jeez they are flaunting it–hey socky I can remember switching the nav lights to stealth mode too lol
to answer Rabbit Welcome to the bullshit files
just beyond the breakers is fine
most fish are fairly close in
tua tuas or shrimp down by the cliff is firing for Blue moki at the mo
squid/crabs/shrimp/strip baits anywhere is a good guess..
shrimp and crab bait for eles/rig/-fishy baits for greyboy
pylons down the right of birdlings works well
straight out the carpark for kahawai etc..low light eve and early morning fishes well
tides mean bugger all to me..its an access thing here
watch out for the sharp end of sharks and hooks happy fishing10/12/2011 at 6:06 am #19719
Kereru Fishing has 3 boats listed on the govt food & safety website.. looks like a family business, owned by the Skene family.10/12/2011 at 8:18 am #19721RabbitParticipant
Thanks Birdlingsflat. Always up for a bit of BS. Can’t wait to catch a few fish and photoshop them to twice the size before posting here
