considering all things have decided after swell maps and when Im available to settle on Sunday as above…start as early in the morning as you like..hopefully waves will go down and if they dont we will have a lot fewer fish fish caught and a good hard comp cheers13/01/2011 at 3:16 am #17113
you have considered everything ? , how have you considered the intentions of other fishermen ??
I wish anyone all the best …..but I will also be giving it a miss this weekend……….unless the forcast changes of course13/01/2011 at 4:03 am #17114
I think the biggest consideration was trying to call it with enough time for people to arrange their weekends sorry the future swell looks too big for you Graham…13/01/2011 at 9:47 am #17118
I am struggling with the swell forecast, 4-5 hours is a long trip for such conditions. Would see how things look in the morning before making up my mind. Might hit Kaikoura Friday night….
Birdlings flat seems to be the roughest spot along the entire coast on swellmap13/01/2011 at 11:09 am #17120elmo22Participant
hard call to c what the next few days will bring ………..they did not see the big rains in aussie poor buggers so north wester here this weekend MAY b clam on sunday i see tuesday is flat so lets hope 4 the best all the best to those who turn up but not 2 much luck as me and the wife will b out there also see you all at prize giving(story telling)13/01/2011 at 12:54 pm #17121
there was a biggish swell out here today but a lone fisher managed to pull a kahawai and a small greyboy out of it..like I said hard conditions so what..we just have to work a little harder..sunday doesnt look half as bad though..even if its a coupla hours before the finish..ya never know..I think it might be nice to have a more social event than a downright sea harvest..at the end of the day..I hope everyone walks away with a smile and possibly some new friends.There is less than a third of the fish around than when I was a young fella and a big part of the 2nd biggest participation..sport in NZ (fishing)is getting out in the elements and fresh air and having ago!And we all know lawn bowls is the biggest participation sport in NZ..but somehow I dont fancy that..Thanks Guys for the support..The event will be as good as the people who come to it..Please ph 329 0002 for any enquires..Cheers Ian

Sorry guys looks unlikely now that I would make it. Number of reasons including gear failure (6500b cuts lines (old issue) and my emblem just started to ‘vibrate’ when winding. So down to one working Surf Reel). Also the forecast is looking poor for fly fishing on Saturday. If I do get there would not be able to attend the evening gathering and would have to be on the road by around 6pm. So its a long drive for me, and one I can not get the best out of.
Also need to search for this little fellow, 18 years old and she wandered off tuesday night. The search is probably in vain, but would like to give her a proper burial. Hence why these been no fishing reports this week.

Forcast is looking a lot better ….might have to venture out myself afterall ..
I could lend ya a good surf reel milly ? youd have to swap the handle around cause as I recall your all backwards and upside down and shit lmao
I dont like this idea of rego’ing beforehand , I’d wanna be fishing by 5am …..have to wake sleepy man up14/01/2011 at 4:58 am #17128
good luck with the dog milly..
