    we used to catch alot of those little fish off the akaroa wharf. They’ve got rainbow coloured swcales that come off really easily. Never found out what their proper name was. We just caled them rainbow fish.

    No elmo , my bad ….I should have pointed out that we took an array of bait …

    Had we only taken mullet for bait , we’d have caught hundreds of dogs …. they were taking bare hooks …..insane numbers …..

    A tui to the blokes in the pics BF posted who rid the sea of numerous specimens of this pest

    Beach had a fair amount of krill on it too ……….

    The sprats in the photo , are not meant to venture north of Banks Peninsula ….tho years ago we struck them at Nape Nape , the kahawai were chasing them onto the beach

    KY werent interested in taking anything other than sprats , so we just threw a hook in them , and cast into the sea ….Boom …

    yes elmo there was chasing but no hitting the surface one assumes something other than kahawai..a few dolphins were jumping and cavorting further out-different baitfish have different actions once chased..

    Warm humid night so decided to go for a surf fish, low on crabs so went to my crab spot to restock.

    One rod baited with mussel the other with half a paddle crab I found in the freezer. Threw pot out hoping to catch more, I cleverly left my rod stands at , first time I done that. Luckily my Kilwell has a spike on the bottom so I pushed it into the sand and made a support out of drift wood for my other rod. Fishing was slow, checked pot to discover my bait had washed out and I had nothing to replace it with :sad:

    Evening something took my mussel rod and I soon had a decent size Moki of around 5lb on the beach, always thought that spot had Moki potential but never caught any there before. Birdlings success got me motivated to try again. A while later my crab rod bent over and pulled out of my drift wood stand, I saved it with time to spare and landed a normal size Rig. Headed for home just before 10.
