    Kaikoura surfcasting comp,Jan 13th 9am-3pm $15 entry and its held off beach road apparently you turn left at Henrys liqour store and head to end of the street.

    Now this is all the info I could get from the lions secretary so im wondering just how well organised it is.

    As for the $15 entry,they couldnt tell me wether that was per adult,spectator,child or what have you nor how many rods you can fish.

    Theres no further info on the lions website nor the Kaikoura info or any public notices in the paper so who knows.

    I did find the contact details for the president (or something) of the Kaikouria Lion club but never got around to contacting him.

    My new rod turned up today, So I am fully armed again. Hope that using two rods at a time is allowed.

    It’s a shame that the competition is fishing the outgoing tide and there’s no information on it. I think I’ll give it a miss this year, but will

    Everyone would be fishing the outgoing tide so it is a fairly equal playing field in that regards.

    Hopefully a few interesting fish would be caught. Have not decided on my bait selection, thinking of trying more ‘exotic baits’ which hopefully would not be widely used.

    The wind and wave height look to be decent tomorrow. I wonder how many people would enter.

    I don’t have my boys tomorrow so I’ll go to Kaikoura anyway, might see you there. I’ll probably head home about 10pm if the fishing is good enough.

    Was it a fairly strong nor-east?

    That mite explain why it was so rough up here today considering it was near a nor-east swell.It was blowin nor-west here all day which normally works in our favour.Obviously had a good blow about the sea area Cook the last cupla days and 1 days nor-west wasnt enough to settle it……….maybe,thats my theory :?

    Just got back from the comp.

    It was hot and the fishing was very slow. I believe the winning fish was a shark and a couple of eels also rated highly. I caught a small mullet which got used for bait and a wrasse.
