Will be looking forward to the up coming white bait season at the mouth of the why-mac.. all the best to any one who goes out on these cold winter days that are coming…14/05/2011 at 7:08 am #18237
I been wanting to get out, but the weather, tides and sea conditions have not been favorable. At this of year I like everything to line up perfectly before giving things a go.14/05/2011 at 7:13 am #18238rayhunterParticipant

Made the most of the nice day so headed down to Seaview for a evening fish. Got there shortly after 5 and the sun was already behind the hills.. Sea was cleaner then I expected with meter swells breaking occasionally. A cold breeze made things a bit chilly after dark. For bait I had a packet of Vietnamese swimming crabs and a few raw prawns from Thailand. Thought these tropical delicacies might do the trick…. Only received one strike which was characteristic of Rig, the only other action was from sea lice. Headed for home just before 819/05/2011 at 4:01 am #18243BirdlingsflatParticipant

Is it worthwhile chasing Moki around the Cliffs over winter?20/05/2011 at 2:48 am #18245St_PaulParticipant
Had a bit of a crack of the beach behind new world in kaikoura on Wednesday night. 1 big fat red cod, 5 large dogfish sea was flat didn’t start getting any bites til right on dusk. Birds working 300-500 metres off shore.20/05/2011 at 5:57 am #18247

From the cliffs to Bayleys early evening is best..fish bait/squid/shellfish-they will swallow it..Red cod are not picky..
The Moki dissapear from the beach near the cliffs at this time of year and come back oct nov..but they stay around the wee rocky bays further on..24/05/2011 at 8:01 am #18267croozerParticipant
Just back from the Catlins…Once again great blue cod and lost a nice trumpeter at my feet, got me in the bull kelp. Now the snapper have finished. time to get cold down south, but well rewarded with great catches of Blues and Trumpeter..no such thing as off season, just got to be versatile…
