Your general area, but one ‘entrance’ closer to the pier then you I suspect. I basically drove to the beach at the start of the small sand road north.
I have had several big strikes then drops at seaview one day, they occurred mid winter and during the day. I was using fairly large hooks at the time, personally put them down to KY. The ‘Tennyson inlet’ setnet experiment indicated they feed close to shore around the new moon.

Went down to Seaview today, got there around 10:30am and the sea was calm for the area. The first fish of the day was a small doggie, followed by a weakly fighting KY and then a red cod. Over peak tide I got several powerful strikes but none got hooked.
bait: Pilchard, Bonito, Piper
edit: Also went for a troll in the wairau/opawa yesterday afternnon, water was quite dirty. Caught nothing but found the Sealion body which was in the news. Looked like DOC took the head.02/11/2008 at 7:09 pm #11541
Cheers for the know, i know the track that runs to the beach, yip thats a little along from where i was, that spot is where i caught my first ever rig and first ever beach fish using the left overs from a cray my mother had cooked up. Of the rig iv caught down there 90% have been caught in that general area. May well be i good area to keep trying for the elusive elephant too.02/11/2008 at 7:56 pm #11542MiliwolfParticipant
There is just so many spots down that way, hard to get a good feel for one area. Then 20 meters down the beach there could be a slight hole or reef which could bring a entirely different results.
Was going to head down to seaview for a fish this morning but the weather stations are already shown gusts up to 20knts. Plus I sleeped in03/11/2008 at 1:44 am #11545SevengillzParticipant

Hey Aaron see that you said you were at the pier on sunday night was it? i was down there on that night and got 2 rig what time where you down there?04/11/2008 at 10:05 am #11581Jones Jr.Participant
Me and Steve (Shark_Tale) got there about 7.30pm I spose and stayed till about 9pm. The northeasterly was a bit cool and the fishing seemed slow so we left.
We were fishing on the right hand side if you were going to walk towards the end of the pier. Probably about 20m back from the end on the right, sort’ve where there is a bench seat. Where were you?
I’d like to go on this forum trip up to Kaikoura but maybe we could have a small gathering at the Pier one evening and try catch some rig? Or anything else? There is Booger (Danny), PierMaster (name? Sorry, lol), tracknz (sorry can’t remember name ), Shark_Tale (Steve), me (Aaron), Firy Ginga (Greg), perhaps also Zac and Leigh (vip_yo) and others could come if they want? We could share techniques etc etc, would be fairly easy for most to go to as it’s not like you have to travel out of town. This coming weekend is looking no good weather wise, the 15th and 16th are looking good for an evening tide. Same goes for the 29th and 30th, probably the 29th and 30th would be good to aim for as it gives most time to plan one of those evenings in advance. Besides the Maori fishing calendar says the 29th and 30th are excellent fishing days! LOL.
What do people think?

Did you still end up going for a fish at the pier, tracknz?
