At 5.30 i headed over to gentle annie a good deep beach to surfcast off, i fished with two rods and the first hr was non stop,both rods getting hook ups and bites, i was running from one rod to the other then it went quite, i only landed 1 snapper and a xl ky in that hr, my mate cliff from westport arrived and started fishing next to me,about 8pm it was all on again lots of hook ups and lost fish, i got 1 more snapper and a few ky (released) and cliff got 2 snapper and an elephant fish the elephant are rare of the beach there…On sunday morning i was back there on daylight and the first hr i got 1 snapper then all of a sudden the next two hrs was all go with both rods catching snapper at the same time, i caught 10 snapper and release about 8 ky the snapper were only pannie size the biggest was 2lbs , sunday i fished the morning for a few hrs and got 1 snapper 3ky (released) and then packed up and headed back to chch… the sea was very clam and clean and the weather was cloudy but warm and no wind for the 3 days a great weekend of fishing i had………………..

Was a good night for rig at the Pier Friday night. Sea was still rough but I think between everyone was about 20 rig most over 10lb. Not much else caught apart from a seven giller a guy lost. Fished again Saturday night, the sea had calmed down quite a bit but still a decent amount of rig around, think there was at least 10 rig caught between everyone but a lot of smaller ones around. Also caught a small stingray and a few school sharks biggest around 8lb.14/02/2012 at 9:39 am #20394
Went for a Snapper fish last night, arrived at my spot in the Mahau sounds shortly after 7pm, just before low tide. Fished until 10:30, it was very calm but little action. Only caught a single pannie Snapper. Would have loved to fish later into the night but had work in the morning.14/02/2012 at 6:23 pm #20395

Went for a fish at Amberley, the sea lice made fishing almost impossible but I somehow managed to catch a rig of around 15lb on a piece of crab that had next to no meat on it.17/02/2012 at 11:53 pm #20414
Fished Pier last night saw Booger and rdeejay up there. Few rig caught between everyone not much else around.
