Might have a browse on the net and see what other people do with salmon. Not sure how much of that 4.5kg will be meat,02/09/2007 at 8:58 pm #8691
im sure alot will be meat02/09/2007 at 9:00 pm #8692
I don’t know if it was already posted, but what sort of gear was the salmon caught on? Like size hooks, bait etc02/09/2007 at 9:06 pm #8693
A 42g hex ticer. I thought it would be worth a try after Aaron caught the kahawai.02/09/2007 at 9:09 pm #8694
I thought it might have just been on bait or something. Was the Kahawai that Aaron caught the only one?02/09/2007 at 9:09 pm #8695
Ok, here we go again. Third attempt at this, should get it done now.
This was a great trip and a first for me in terms of getting a decent fish surfcasting! I’ve caught the odd doggie before surfcasting and that’s what put me off it for a little while there. But Kaikoura produced the goods and according to Greg (HEAD) and his dad the fishing was only moderate and better days can be had. The Salmon caught by Booger was certainly cool though!
First went to South Bay and started fishing around 11:45am, left there about 1pm or maybe 1:30pm after no fish had been caught. Not even any bites! Mind you the tide was very low only just coming back in, with these steeply shelved beaches one would think it might not matter as much but yeah……. Grabbed some lunch and went to the old railway station and fished there.02/09/2007 at 9:19 pm #8696
That’s a good report there Jones Jr.
