    Same thing happens at all the club comps and the dogfish just keep coming all day must be millions of them out there just wish species like rig and elephant outnumbered dogfish. Comercial fishing is only going to continue and probably going to be more demand for fish in future years. 40 or 50 years is in my lifetime I just hope the fishing isn’t so bad by then that land based fishing and surfcasting isn’t even worth the time.

    A lot of surfcasting trips turn out to be a waste of time already.. it’s so frustrating when the conditions are great for catching fish, but there just don’t seem to be any fish around or sea lice are stripping your baits quickly.

    No such thing as a wasted trip, time spent wetting bait helps to build knowledge, and knowledge is what catches fish consistently.

    Spent a couple of hours targeting Rig at Rarangi last night, wind was from behind but with extremely powerful gusts at times. Sea was quite calm. Only caught a single skate, forgot my headlamp so did not stay for long after dusk.

    Managed to catch a lice ridden Perch on friday in Kaikoura, aswell as break my umbrella and lose a rod handle overboard… Should have waited until Saturday

    If weathers all good might go up to Kaikoura on Saturday. Anyone heard much about the kahawai? Heard there has been some massive schools offshore, are they coming in close to the beaches?

    Yup I have between Birdlings and the rakaia to fish every day if I wish..(terrible life)Its a tad horrible if you consider I grew up in the north chasing snapper and kingis every week..I fished just 1km south of Bayles last night with squid wrapped with mussel and tied..wishing I was near Kaikoura for the Kahawai…cheers

    Birdlings , you ever fish between baileys and tuamutu ? maybe closer to tuamutu side ? …the water is a lot deeper along there for some reason ….just where the sandhills go from really high to a bit lower again …heading south I mean ….

    A hell of a lot of sharks there tho …but more of everything
