    Went out to birdlings flat again last night(15th) and fished from 3-8pm got out there. It was pretty windy so had to cast bout 20m along the beach so that the line would be out in front of my rod stand. :P
    2nd cast hooked a well over 8ft+ seven gill shark was bigger than i was!! had it about 4m away from me and that was the closest i got it. Came very close to spooling me, i was down to the last few turns to my reel which is 300m+ out but managed to wrench most of it back in. But after an epic battle of 1 and a half hours! and about 150m away from my mate and other fishing rods it bit me off maybe 30m from shore just behind the breakers, F***! Was pretty screwed after that so i just lay on the beach for a good half hour lol :P but did get to see the shark plenty of times in just behind the breakers and splashing around pretty far out so was all good fun :)
    then caught a decent rig abit later on
    lots of dogfish tho

    Not Surfcasting, but caught my first Snapper of the Summer :) It took a gulp crab in the QC sounds which was drifting behind my kayak. It is a day earlier then my first Snapper last summer. Took it just after high tide probably around 7:30pm, the sea breeze was still strong.

    Simon, You would have to head a couple of hours north or south and try for a few of the big sharks which roam the surf zone during the summer.

    Why would he have to head a few hours north or south? There’s beaches closer to Christchurch and even the Pier you can catch sharks at. Birdlings flat isn’t that far.

    will do. i’ll be in aussie in january, and will hopefully hook on to something decent. even bought a 24 kg standup outfit on trademe here the other day, and the largest hook i could find in fisherman’s loft haha. will probably have to rent a kayak or something to deploy the bait, or take it out with a baloon in offshore wind…. I know i’m not swimming it out haha. couple of k’s smelly tuna under the arm a few hundred meters from shore during summer time :grin: will mostly use my regular surfcasting outfit ofcourse :) anyone know when shark season from shore ends in canterbury? when the water is getting cooler again or?

    I’ve always been keen on swimming a big bait out. Would have to choose the beach wisely tho.

    What sharks would be around?? Sevengillers, rig etc obviously?? but any other species in canterbury waters??

    Hey Simon i was chatting with you the other evening i see you have sorted the logging on thing out now, man that was some big bait you were launching out half a fish and a hook the size a butcher would hang a pig from :lol:

    We should take you out on our kayak mission but you can catch the big sharks on your own i’m not into kayak skiing behind a mako :dude:

    have a merry xmas
