    Was it just after daybreak ? We had one cruise past at Baileys …..maybe a saturday morning ? heading nor-east and was close enough to spit at .

    I remember one afternoon maybe 18yrs ago at Baileys when there was literally 10’s of thousands of basking sharks ….as far as the eye could see in all directions ….was an incredible sight

    all the basking sharks were killed off for their livers….

    on the plus side apparently huge schools of Kahawai down the kaikoura coast over the past week.

    anyone know the deal with water around christchurch after earthquakes etc? I assume Sumner/Taylors Mistake would be no good due to sewer water etc but birdlings flat etc would be fine? Im too keen to get out there and go fishing, i might even head out somewhere tommorow (weather permitting)

    Taylors is ok to eat fish I think …..went over there Friday ..

    The walk down is a tad hairy , the last of the soiled part of the walk has actually split in 2 ….and all sorts of erosion

    The council has closed the walking track , but you just climb over it , DO NOT go there Mon-Mon coming ….they are pushing bolders down the hill into the sea …..all the batches along the right of the bay and the cliff are red stickered …..and they say they will erect nets to protect them …..I’m picturing some yaahooing going on when they smash those batches into the sea from the hilltop …been trying to get rid of them for years ..

    how does birdlings flat look like for a fish later today? What’s it like for low tide (incoming tide), i see high is around 7.30pmish but i was wanting to head out there maybe 3. I was looking at swellmap and it said waves etc around 1.4m or so

    Should be fishable , low tide is around 2pm or just before .. , but Ive found that while its still calming down after being rough it’ll be dogfish city , especially

    A mate just called in , he’s been on the pier this morning and saw 5 large kahawai caught …..this along with whitebait showing up in the Kaiapoi tells me the Waimac mouth could be a go this afternoon ….. so that’s where I’m heading …
    Might have a drag for whitebait while my mate watches the rods chasing kahawai and flounders
