kai’s usually 15 per rod06/01/2010 at 6:47 am #14589
I suspect same competitors only pay the single fee then fish multiple rods. I never been checked while fishing there.06/01/2010 at 6:55 am #14590fishforpotParticipant
Just while I think of it , the 1 rule some comps gave that I DO NOT agree with , it trout or salmon ……if you aint got a licence you cant weigh it in ……which is crap …..if your outside acclimatised waters its open slather ………06/01/2010 at 7:26 am #14591Fishy BishyParticipant
It used to be 500m from a fresh water outlet or beyond was OK if open sea caught Salmon.
Some areas like Tentburn were less as I recall and may still be in other areas too.
Have a copy of the Fisheries regs in your pocket to back yourself up, but then again what the organisers say….goes usually.
The daily limit was still two for Salmon, unsure for sea caught Trout.
Unlikely to get a Trout that far away from fresh water anyway I would have thought???06/01/2010 at 7:42 am #14592
I know one estuary in golden bay where sea runs are easy to catch 500m from the river mouth. Also large chunks of the Wairau lagoons because that is technically the sea.08/01/2010 at 4:28 am #14624
Anyone know the time for the Kaikoura comp?
I think last year it was
Registration starts at 8am
Fishing Starts at 9am
Fishing Ends at 3:00pm
Prize giving at 3:30pm08/01/2010 at 6:42 pm #14632HookLineSinkerParticipant
good luck fishing the comp id love to make it this year as the tides and weather look good but unfortunately my dollars dont strecth that far these days. I see no reason why the times would be any different to last year.08/01/2010 at 8:03 pm #14633fishforpotParticipant
The weather forcast looks a lot better for Kaikoura than Amberly……
Id prefer Amberly tho , at least they have rules that are enforced …..
Kaikoura when I asked at signin , how many hooks ? what time can we start ?
I was told , as many as you want , and whenever you get on the beach – this was at 8.10am
I cant see prizegiving at 3.30 ….you have 15-30 min to land a fish hooked before 3.00 , that gotta get it back , weigh it and collate the results etc ….
Past years it was just a smidge past 4pm …….08/01/2010 at 8:16 pm #14634Fishy BishyParticipant
Sounds like it is geared toward getting holidaymakers and visitors onto the beach in a semi-structured activity.
In the long term, it would expose the visitors to the potential Kaikoura offers and any time on the water is time well spent.
I have fished Amberley in all conditions even in a stinking southerly in a comp.
Easy beach to fish in the right conditions but I feel Kaikoura may offer more species to those whose lines are wet.
I agree about dollars and believe it is near impossible to afford all the comps in the season.
Today for example, I could be at Porongahau east of Waipukurau and Dannevirke on the Wairarapa/Hawkes Bay coast.
Tomorrow there’s a comp on our local beach ten minutes from here.
Porongahau a good 2 plus hours drive on a road like the one into Motunau Beach, entry $25 per rod, 4wd essential or walk a hell of a distance………Waitarere Beach, 15 minutes drive incl beach driving, $10 per rod, beach like New Brighton, hard sand and flat and 2wd is OK for about 6kms or as far as the eye can see north and south.
The latter gets my vote if the nor wester is elsewhere tomorrow.08/01/2010 at 9:04 pm #14635
There is a real lack of surf-casting comps around Blenheim.
These a couple of fishing comps in the sounds but they are spread across a massive area over several days. There is a couple on the westcoast but they are a 5hr drive and are typically spread over a week. Only good for people staying over there. There is the Blind river competition but that does not occur often. The fishing club might have one but I am not involved with them.
So we only have the Kaikoura contest. Nape Nape is another option but quite a long drive. I also think there might be a little ‘localised’ Goose Bay contest.
If the Kaikoura and Amberly contest was on Saturday/Sunday I would probably fish both but they make them clash .08/01/2010 at 10:06 pm #14636elmo22Participant
Hi,can someone tell me the hrs of the amberly contest08/01/2010 at 10:33 pm #14637Captain HookParticipant
Wondered when you would be back. Brian M sent me the results and I see you and the good lady picked up a prize each.
Watched the conditions closely through a couple of websites and a close by webcam, must have been hard work.
Would loved to have been there but these things happen.09/01/2010 at 3:20 am #14638elmo22Participant
