Everytime I checked the mouth of the bar and diversion there has been KY caught, more at the bar then the diversion. Large ones, not the fry which turn up during the summer months. Might even go for a Surfcast myself shortly (but not at the bar/diversion), this is the time of year they start to return.20/08/2011 at 9:56 pm #18510
Getting itchy feet, cant wait for the elephants to arrive!!20/08/2011 at 11:34 pm #18511
Its only 9 or so days until September which is when the pannies start to return to the Sounds , Whitebait season has begun so the Kahawai numbers should be on the increase. Little over a month before the trout season begins. The spring norwesters must be due to arrive soon which would calm the Kaikoura coast allow for good spear and yak fishing. Winter would be over before we know it.
Of course, you guys in Canterbury have several more months before the sea starts to produce lemons and elephants.23/08/2011 at 11:36 am #18518BirdlingsflatParticipant

Have you added a special holder for the nitrolingual?
Keen to hear how its fishing down there, have a mate who’s hanging out for a kahawai or 424/08/2011 at 10:51 pm #18528
Got a club fishing thing on Saturday at wakanui so expecting to get a few doggies. Shouldn’t be too long before the rig and eles show up. Might have another trip up to kaikoura in October.25/08/2011 at 2:42 am #18529
Just been out to the beach but about 4 meter swells so couldn’t fish. Decided just to have a bit of casting practice and try attempt pendulum casting. Was using a 5oz sinker with my okuma solaris and kilwell 222 with axeon reel and my Poseidon rod with daiwa sl50sh. Think I was getting the best distance with the poseidon even though the sl50 isn’t really a distance casting reel. Would be good to have a forum casting day somewhere so we can measure distances and get someone who knows what they’re doing to teach us.25/08/2011 at 4:28 am #18530
My casting would be embarrassing..
Thinking of hitting Kaikoura this weekend, swellmap is showing swells less then a meter and not much wind. Kayak, Moki fish the night then go for a spear Sunday morning.25/08/2011 at 5:48 am #18531
Mines a tad rusty, used to be able to get about 150m with a 5 oz sinker and clip down rig. Have been concentrating on fly lately.
Fished Kaikoura last night, lots of good sized banded wrasse but bugger all else. Still fairly murky close in, reckon that by the weekend it might be good. Large flocks of birds working up to 1/2 a KM out25/08/2011 at 6:11 am #18532
Are the big kahawai schools around kaikoura ways yet?25/08/2011 at 9:32 am #18534
Birds were working way out at various points down the coast so they’ll be about. unfortunately not close to shore at this stage.30/08/2011 at 1:43 am #18544BirdlingsflatParticipant
