Seen an Orca at Taumutu once a couple years back, neat sight.11/09/2011 at 3:21 am #18591
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 sight11/09/2011 at 4:48 am #18592
Now your lucky to see one basking shark anywhere13/09/2011 at 8:53 am #18606St_PaulParticipant
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.13/09/2011 at 10:56 am #18607HIPPParticipant

I wonder if eles will take a peanut bait………17/09/2011 at 9:19 am #18618
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)17/09/2011 at 10:06 am #18619BirdlingsflatParticipant
heres what it was like on friday http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LztzhtDvMEM sea lumpy here today..might be calm tomorrow google- chch weather to find safe quality of water in chch invirons-they include a map..(its all on the net)-17/09/2011 at 7:51 pm #18620
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 ..17/09/2011 at 10:44 pm #18622
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 so17/09/2011 at 10:55 pm #18623
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
