fishing of the pier do you use surfcasters or boat rods with strong line thanks19/11/2011 at 6:12 am #19390
This pic was in the New Zealand fishing news, it was featured in an article about hot spots on surf beaches. As I have said before, the water between the outer sand bar and the beach is a deep channel/gutter that runs along most of the beach’s length, these areas are fish highways after dark and are full of pipi and tuatua…I catch pretty much all my surf caught fish from this type of water “>

Thanks Kev. Elmo it doesn’t matter too much IMO unless you want to cast far off the end, and it pays to have a very long leader so you don’t lose a big fish when lifting it up to the pier.19/11/2011 at 11:41 pm #19395oldgreyboyParticipant

Went fishing with Greg last night at Amberley Beach, each of us got a nice rig around 12 to 13lb perhaps, didn’t have scales. Here’s my one.
Had two other hook ups but lost them behind the breakers, one felt resonable whereas the other felt like an averagely sized fish.

Fished Pines Beach, yesterday morning and end of afternoon as well as this morning. Caught nothing but a few crabs. Hooks were being cleaned by them so I decided to add a float to my rig. Stopped getting crabs but go nothing else either.
Was using Prawns, the crabs I caught and some shellfish found there. People around me didn’t seem to be catching anything either and I talked to some blokes who were fishing closer to the mouth who caught nothing either.
Beautiful day though, specially yesterday.20/11/2011 at 4:34 am #19403elmo22Participant
your are one very lucky fisherman fishforpot. you have the touch lol20/11/2011 at 5:30 am #19405fishforpotParticipant
I wouldnt call 3/4 “three quarters” of a lb for 5 hrs baiting as lucky …… unless you read it 3-4 lb lol ……
As for the fishing , luck doesnt play much of a part , reading the beach , bait presentation and selection are fairly important …
Oh , I did throw a second bait in this morning , inside the gut , the crabs were feeding in there something shocking ….the fish were caught in open water …
Having gear balanced for a very long cast helps on the shallow beaches , expecially during the day …..ele at 9.45am , rig at 3.30-4ish pm
Was a cracky day down the beach today for sure ……20/11/2011 at 5:36 am #19406
Went to Pines beach last night with my brother, nothing for the first hour then within half an hour I pulled in an Elephant Fish, a rig then another Ele. My very first Elephant fish and Rig ever caught!!

Good one Boomslangnz, had the rig but still waiting on the ele..!20/11/2011 at 5:57 am #19408MiliwolfParticipant
Took the Sim card out of the Iphone I found and its a T-Mobile, so its a tourist Iphone. Sadly I do not think these anything worth savaging from it…. might attach a hook and use it as a jig one day
