    Fished coopers lagoon this evening, no good at all,prawn baits getting stripped no bites at all,very sad.

    saw a longline out but even they did no good another chap called by for a yarn and he had been down to the salmon farm area,also with no joy:(…..may give Amberly tomorrow evening weather permitting.
    Great to see some of you doing very well,the shallow beaches seem to be fishing well,I may have to give that a try.,Hipp

    Went for a fish at Spencer park, got my limit of 5 elephant fish, there seems to be a lot of good spots for catching them at the moment. I ran into a guy there called Paul from up North who was four times NZ surfcasting champion or something.

    good one booger! I have never fished spencer although I have heard many good things about it! Is there any particular wind or anything to avoid there? I went there once but the surf was far too intense to fish. I’m new to the game so any advise would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    It was the first time I’ve fished there but I would say a westerly wind would be good as this would be an offshore wind, flattening the waves a bit and helping your casts go further.
    Use http://www.swellmap.com to see what the surf is going to be like, if New Brighton and Kairaki are OK then it should be OK too. I usually go by the face height/set wave face and look for a beach where it will be 1.5m or less.

    Drove down to pegasus yesterday to see if I could see any channels to fish in along the beach there, unfortunately it was near high tide… They’ve got a carpark right down to the beach now, so its easy access if their is a channel or 2 along that stretch, I figure if amberley, spencers and pines is fishing ok then woodend/ashley/pegasus should be much the same.
