    elmo , Ive fished Spencer park a heap over the last 10-15yrs …….if you can get yourself 4km down towards the river mouth you will do a lot better …….

    Ive also found , as well as crab , squid and tuatua , strip baits of fresh mullet work well on the elephants there ….BUT , all those baits will get horribly outfished by chunks of paua meat ….
    Ive fished it dozens of times next to a local who uses paua , he always caught 3 to my one on average …unless I had paua …..
    I think its about on par for attractiveness to the ele’s ………but nothing else really touches it , so it gets left for the eles …and the crabs take way way longer to pick at it

Fished the gravel pits on the outgoing tide on Thursday 1 Large schoolie and about 10 small kahawai. Suspect it’ll go off after acouple of norwest days. Does anyone know when the lions comp is this year?

    Yes elmo ……poor Lindsay has lost his house from what I hear …..

    Oh , and I wont fish the Lions comp at Kaiks again ….I mentioned some time back about the year the daughter won it , only to have some magic shark appear , or not appear , just the figures in the score book ……
    I heard from a mate who was talking to a guy fishing next to the “winner” , and the bloke will never go back …..the 7 giller the guy was meant to have caught was non existant

    Something similar happened the year before when I know for a fact I won it …magic fish again ……..

    Sad to say its rigged , but it sure was those 2 years ……the only 2 Ive fished it ……..even the guy who used to run a local sports store told me it’s always won by locals , end of story ……

    Went up to Kaikoura on thursday night. Andrew(PierMaster) was already at the wharf so went there first and put the sabiki trace down with no bait and caught three small kahawai at once. Packed up and went over to the beach and fished for a few hours. Lots of carpet sharks around and a few dogfish but I got a seven giller later on that was pretty much a dead weight, got it to the beach before someone decided to grab the shockleader instead of the tail and it snapped leaving it to swim off with my good trace in it’s mouth. Fished at the beach again the next morning, caught carpet sharks, red cod and kahawai between us. Big schools of kahawai but they were all really small ones got about 20 between the three of us on lures, we were hooking up literally a couple meters out. Went for a look over at the wharf again and saw some big schools of mullet and kahawai going past. Only managed one kahawai on the lure though. Went back to the beach again after that but not much happening being the middle of the day with no swell and clear as water although saw a good sized stingray cruising a couple meters out. Andrew caught a frostfish out of the breakers by hand that was sick as but still alive so took it for bait. Swell picked up a lot later on so went back to the wharf got a few barracouta saw some small schools of squid and a few piper swimming around. Earlier in the day we also saw a pretty big squid swimming around that was totally different to the normal ones I’ve seen there before.
