    Went to timaru for a few hours this afternoon. Caught small terakihi, warehou, mullet and a small kahawai from the wharf on carolyne bay side that says private property. Never caught a kahawai at the other wharfs where the fishing boats go so seems they don’t enter there for some reason. Had a massive hit and hook bent out twice on my sabiki and I don’t know how many times that has happened while fishing there and I’ve always lost whatever it was. I suspect it to be either large terakihi, moki, or salmon but could be anything. Also Saw some big schools of dogfish swimming around on the surface like you would see mullet, never seen them like that before.

    Went to Wakanui late yesterday,with 2 friends.

    N/E wind ok but big southerly swell, and high tide made for interesting fishing,

    one grey boy (on prawn) and a small dogfish (on crab!!!)….though it was hooked in the “beak” so maybe he was just havin a wee sniff :

    and one larger fish lost in the surf from the shark family but not identified.

    lost a lot of gear, but better than working.

    Another friend got a Rig there the day before.

    I just cant seem to get onto them this year…any advice guys.

    Cheers, Hipp

    Check this website for swell conditions – http://swellmap.com/reg_forecasts.php?tag=BirdF#anchor Anything above 1 meter is usually a bit rough. Haven’t been to wakanui for a while but there should still be a good number of rig around so can’t really give any more advice to catching them.

    Here are some old pics of a ray I got at kaikoura only just got them from the fiery ginga.

    Hooked up

    Removing the hook at the steps. Was using a slide trace that’s meant to slide down your line after you cast out your sinker but since the ray was right at the wharf I just clipped it up to mainline and dropped it down.

    Ah ok i know where you mean and thats one place me and my bro as youngsters never flicked a line, back in those days you could fish every wharf there is, but a heck of a lot has changed since then(25 odd years +) we would fish sanfords wharf, the wharf which is used now by the roll on roll off nedloyd, number 2 but never 3 and of course number 1 extension.

    Fished new wharf at Kaikoura to sometime after midnight. Quite a calm sea.

    In total caught 3 or 4 moki and 2 Blue cod and a tara. All undersize. Others on the wharf caught Moki and Tara while I was there.

    Only one group of four squids swam past while I was there, they ignored my jig. Would wait until autumn before my next visit to the wharf.
