Does that include Claverley? (north of the river mouth?)19/10/2009 at 5:03 am #13730
I don’t think it should19/10/2009 at 6:32 am #13731
I agree… Would just spread everyone out to much. If someone wants to put the effort in to walk to the rivermouth that should be allowed.
I do not think it is possible to drive there, maybe 4wd down the riverbed.19/10/2009 at 6:37 am #13732
I’ll just fish the beach in front of where I park, can’t see any point in walking down the beach.19/10/2009 at 6:43 am #13733
From memory the beach is long and uniform looking…. My memory is not the best so there might be a few reefs which could break things up a bit. I know there is one at Claverley. I to would be fishing close to my truck.
Rivermouth could concentrate Kahawai.19/10/2009 at 6:47 am #13734
Yeah but kahawai aint gonna win longest or heaviest fish. I’d say conger and skate would be longest/heaviest if any are caught.19/10/2009 at 7:07 am #13735
Fishing can be very slow during the day on these beaches. A kahawai might be the only fish caught.
A Tope / Sevengiller of decent size could take one or both categories.19/10/2009 at 7:45 am #13736St_PaulParticipant
no major reefs off that beach. fishing is difficult on anything other than nor west.
Stock up on chicken hearts for congers and prawns for rig. Either of those species should put you in the running.19/10/2009 at 8:24 am #13737151Participant
Yes your right conway can be abit hard to fish during the day,shame your starting comp so late, but its one of the few beachs in canterbury that you can put out a fish bait for greyboy etc & not get hammered by doggies,Some real nice greyboys there & rig,I have only caught rig there on crayfish(dawn,dusk) no luck at all with crab etc. Also if you carry on round the road to claverly drive to the end wheres theres a cockys entrance park there walk over to beach(reef) beaut spot for moki of the beach, have had alot of luck here, also possible chance of crays there19/10/2009 at 8:40 am #13738PierMasterParticipant
Should we just have it off kaikoura whale watch? not often that u dont catch fish off there
conway can be hard fishing at times19/10/2009 at 9:41 am #13739
I never had much luck fishing off whale watch beach, so not a favourite spot of mine. Over the years think I have caught a few Kahawai, small dogfish and and a wrasse. I like the idea of Conway because I have never fished it before, it is also slightly closer for Zac to travel to.20/10/2009 at 12:47 am #13742
Where’s whale watch? If we were going to change it maybe in front of the railway station? Kaikoura is only an extra half an hour so I would travel further if the comp was there. But should we be changing it so late? I can’t see many people going anyway, maybe 5? Weather is also looking a lot better in Christchurch than in Kaikoura so maybe Conway will be better?20/10/2009 at 4:08 am #13743PierMasterParticipant

So who can confirm if they’re going or not, just to get an idea of how many people will be there.21/10/2009 at 6:33 am #13746
I intend on going if the current forecast holds.
On the previous forum fishing trip to Kaikoura we got about 6 to turn up, hopefully we could match if not beat it this time.
