Still reckon it is a touch short.21/01/2010 at 7:33 am #14756rdeejayParticipant
Went there for a nosey yesterday while checking out the area, what a poxy little wharf.22/01/2010 at 1:40 am #14760
I don’t think the length really matters, still the same fish around. Seen moki and blue cod right under the wharf along with big schools of small terakihi, mullet and other fish during the day, and very active at night with squid and barracouta. It’s awesome being able to see the bottom and even the fish taking your hook. Would be a problem if it ever got so busy that there was no room but I don’t think that is likely.22/01/2010 at 1:51 am #14761rdeejayParticipant
Yeah i’m sure the fish don’t care about the length lol, just made the comment in comparison to other wharves. Was quiet the day i had a look with nothing being caught.17/02/2010 at 4:59 am #14922
Does anyone have a great idea on a good way to hold rods while fishing from the wharf??
All of the rot holes are now gone17/02/2010 at 5:43 am #14923
I just lie them down on the wharf and set drag nearly freespool. Otherwise you could get something heavy to put some pvc pipe on like a large brick or something wooden that would secure under the wood at the end.17/02/2010 at 5:58 am #14925
i put my rods inbetween the chains and the pylon.
it sits in there well17/02/2010 at 6:43 am #14926
just hold onto em with ur hands man should be so many fish round ya wont have time to put em down17/02/2010 at 8:35 am #14927
Bit hard to hold one rod while reeling in another. Hoping to fish three rods, two for Moki and a third with a squid jig
Think I might bring a couple of buckets with me, then head down to the boat launching beach around from the old wharf which I beleive is sandy. Then full the buckets with sand with a piece of pipe sticking out. Should work as a mobile rod holder. Hoping to fish there Saturday night and Sunday morning17/02/2010 at 8:46 am #14928
You can put your rods in between the chains on the side of the wharf like Sam said. Otherwise you could get a bucket and put a couple bits of pvc pipe in then fill with Concrete, but probably easier to just use the chains on the side of the wharf or just leave them lying down like I did, I never had any problems. I’d also suggest just dropping your line straight down otherwise you’ll most certainly get snagged. Be interesting to see how you get on with the squid jig, last time I was there I only saw a couple small schools, not enough to catch any on the jig. The time before that though there was massive schools of them so maybe they’re only around at a certain time of the year?17/02/2010 at 8:54 am #14929
I have never seen squid there before, so hopefully they are around. Would check out the chains. Never been a fan of lying rods down with not much drag, can just imagine forgetting to undo the drag then watching the rod disappear over the side.17/02/2010 at 9:00 am #14930
It can actually be hard to see they’re squid unless you take a good look. First time I saw them swimming around being chased by barracouta then saw then jumping out of the water so thought they were kahawai or something then realised they were squid. The small schools I’ve seen are usually 3 – 5 and sometimes you’ll see them swimming around by themselves.
