The only reason I would argue against the introduction of a size limit is that they make excellent live baits. Probably would be happy with a bag limit of 6, would certainly slow down the slaughter of small fish,07/01/2010 at 5:07 am #14607Fishy BishyParticipant

Didn’t know there was a limit on Yellow Eyed Mullet07/01/2010 at 5:15 am #14610fishforpotParticipant
I heard talk of a size limit being imposed exclusivly for the Pier ………Im not sure how they’d get on saying you are talking livies lol …..you put em back live lol
For KAHAWAI …..not mullet07/01/2010 at 5:17 am #14611
Usually when I go up to the pier I just get as many kahawai and herring as I can of any size, saves going up all the time to get bait when I can just get them all in one day.
Anyone know if there’s a limit on conger eels?07/01/2010 at 6:39 am #14615
Fairly certain they are covered by generic eel so 607/01/2010 at 6:40 am #14616fishforpotParticipant
Ive caught the odd brat kahawai up the Avon over the years , but thats about it ……
The numbers Ive seen caught off the Pier astounded me ….and I do wonder what damage is being done to kahawai stocks as a result ……07/01/2010 at 6:56 am #14617
Was just wondering what would happen if you caught more than one seven giller at a competition the second one being bigger than the first what would you do since you’re only allowed one?07/01/2010 at 7:08 am #14618
There is no limit on Sevengillers up in challenger
If you caught two in a comp, you would have to release the second one. Have to hope that they allow weigh and release which really should be standard practice for comps.07/01/2010 at 11:38 am #14621
hi all just join the site
went out to black point taylors last monday with a few mates caught a 7pound kawhai not a bad sized grey boy gave it to the asain that was there.had a cuda on but lost it the rocks not a bad effort for the first time there with new gear10/01/2010 at 8:23 am #14655
Went up to Kaikoura on friday. Was to windy to fish the beach on friday so went right to the wharf, caught a few herring, small terakihi and spotties. After dark got around 20 squid using my cast net. Was some massive schools even saw the squid and barracouta jumping. Used one of the squid to catch a stingray Saturday morning, dropped it right down on the bottom and watched the stingray come sit on top of it. Fished the beach for a couple hours and only ended up with a conger and two cod before going back to the wharf. Caught a few small moki and other undersized stuff before dark then got a few more squid. Only got one skate and a doggie at the comp but still won a prize.10/01/2010 at 8:40 am #14657
Were the squid of decent size? Might have to make another trip down there just to target them.
Caught a average Skate at the comp today. From the reports I heard the north end of the beach was fishing better. Weather was good…11/01/2010 at 1:26 am #14662
went up to kaikoura on sat
had a fish on wharf for a bit nothing so went to south bay but nothing again so we went to beach and only caught a mullet then went to wharf for the rest of day and got an undersize moki.
quite good to see the squid off the wharf
aparently they wer in bigger schools the night before but zac styl got a few
comp on sunday first cast small skate. took bait as soon as it hit bottom pretty much but nothing else. still got a prize though11/01/2010 at 1:34 am #14663
oh also fished southshore spit on friday at end of rockinghorse road
fished exactly opposite shag rock
did a baitfish for a bit caught quite a few mullet then we cast out the whole mullet
one of my mates hooked and landed a small stingray and hooked 2 more small ones but they busted off
then ma other mate landed a small stingray
and on ma last cast i hooked and landed one too and it took me about 600 meters down the beach to land it. it would of been close to 110 pounds. it was a mission getting the hook out of its mouth and even harder to get the thing back in water
it was amazing because none of the stingrays we landed were the same ones
i have a picture but dont know how to post it?12/01/2010 at 12:10 am #14670
Here’s a picture of the squid and the conger I got on saturday. the fiery ginger has the picture of the stingray.
