    I use 20cm of 80lb wire trace, the teeth marks are obvious after each fight. The only time I use nylon trace when fishing the east coast is when targeting Rig (prawn).

    Still need to find the Snapper spot and Elephant spot along the coast. A Moki spot would also be great.

    Popped down to the beach after work for a few hours yesterday, caught some fish. A big spiny two red cod some small tope some bigger tope and a good 8kg tope which put on a good fight and was a matter of tiring it out before i was able to land it. Even the smaller ones (2-4kg) had a lot of fight in them more so than iv had before even had one jumping out of the water trying to throw the hook. So was a good afternoon fishing considering it was just three hours from leaving home and getting back again.
    High tide 4.50pm
    Fishing time 4.30 – 6pm most the fish caught between 4.40 and 5.30
    Strong gale force norwester had been blowing all day, luckily the spot i was at was flat and sheltered so little wind on the beach.
    Bait: Red cod – squid/spottie
    Spiny – pilchard
    Tope – pilcahard/squid/spottie , red cod(8kg specimen)
    Heres some pics of yesterdays sojournes,
    Heres what greeted me a muddy looking sea the effect of the mud flowing from the awatere river, luckily the water was realitively claen right on the beach.

    And heres one of the moderate sized fish that put on a good fight for its size

    And heres the 8kg fish, it swirled to the surface as soon as i put pressure on it once it had finished pulling string about 100 metres off the beach, then it came in quite easily intil it reach the breakers and then it took about 10minutes to wear down and eventually allow it to be washed onto the beach and by which time ended up about 200 metres down the beach from my gear.

    Has to be Seaview?

    Must of been a extra energetic tope for the size to take that amount of line. The one I took maybe 25-50m of line and was on the gravel in less then 5 minutes. But my one swam straight into the breakers once hooked which probably shorten the fight.

    Hey Rob and others

    High tide is at 6.50pm, what would be best? Arrive 1 hour before high tide (at 5.50pm)? Or do people think an hour before the change of light is more important (Which would be 7.30pm on an outgoing tide).

    Cheers

    On the topic of school sharks. I caught a couple at Wakanui beach the other week, and one put up a REALLY strong fight and took a bit to get in. It wasn’t all THAT big, but it was hooked sort of on the top fin which explains why it put up so much of a fight.
