most of your questions searunner can be answered by browsing this site.it all depends what your fishing for?-sounds like you would be happy with anything….strip fishy baits for Kahawai..crab for rig etc…re baits and rigging them…browse the site…also clear water is good -happy fishing..and remember to read your input before you submit it..ie qoute-“is it best fishing in clear water or in clear water like i was”-unquote..we find it extremely difficult to answer things like that .. ..Im off down the beach now..cheers Ian

Fished at Kaikoura beach this morning 9.30am to about 5pm. Was pretty good conditions but started fishing to late in the day and by the afternoon the strong offshore wind picked up along with the swell and lots of weed in the water so moved over to the wharf for an hour caught a few mullet for bait then came home. Managed to land a skate, two congers and lost a few others. Tried the spinner a couple times but just no kahawai around didn’t see anyone else getting any either.
Apparently the squid are back at the wharf so hoping to get some with the cast net when I go up at the end of the week ready for the competition, although the weather is looking bad with rain all next weekend.01/01/2011 at 11:03 am #16843MiliwolfParticipant
Fairly certain only line fishing is allowed from the Wharf Zac.
