    Yes mainly in the water though. Good size fish turing up and been caught this year. Again so far most of them have been caught in or near the water.

    Pink/White and silver/yellow 100 – 150gm jigs working best.

    Good luck…..

    Anyone know how long they’re likely to be around close to shore and this far south? I wouldn’t think they’d be around for much longer

    I would think they will stick around at least until end of March maybe longer.

    Leaves time for a few more trips to Kaikoura then, maybe there would be some around the wharf or further out. Could always send a balloon out off the wharf or beach in the right conditions with a live kahawai then I’ve got a chance at a kingfish or a blue or other shark. Still would like to catch a blue shark, thresher shark, kingfish, seven giller over 8 foot and a stingray over 150kg from land in the south island.
