Back from a week in Waikawa, fishing was poor. Karaka point …lost gear, and a few big somethings that took me and mates into the foul, nothing landed up there. Saw a carpet shark landed by someone else. A couple of small snapper from Waikawa wharf, and some KY, but only towards the end of the week, I think maybe the amount of rain the week before upset the fishing. Lost more gear at the wharf, probs Coutta. Dissapointing on the whole…thats fishing!30/01/2011 at 8:17 pm #17362fisherman24Participant

Fished Karaka point tonight, and not much to show for my effort. Was quite windy but I was sheltered enough by the cliffs. Quickly caught a KY on my spinner for a live bait and sent it out. Nothing touched it, I released it for next time around 9:30pm. Struggled to find sites suitable for my rock or beach spikes… Eventually got my beach spike in. KY was swimming around quite a bit so decided against Straylining for snapper at the same time. Think I would check it out over low tide next time.
There must be better shore based spots then Karaka for kingfish, just need to find them.01/02/2011 at 3:49 am #17395HookLineSinkerParticipant
Im guessing somewhere in the port underwood could be worth a crack.01/02/2011 at 8:21 pm #17398
I did some night-time fishing while on holiday last week, the main catches were snapper from the old wharf in Motueka (mostly 25-30cm), and conger eels at Little Kaiteriteri beach.02/02/2011 at 1:30 am #17401
The wind at Birdlings was about 100km and stones and shingle gave me a right flailing.But the fishing was great.Lost four large rig in the last 20 feet of water.
Two are in the chilly bin and several more took bait ( crab) and did searing,blistering, runs before getting off.Discovered that two of my hooks were straightening
out a bit, but springing back to shape so it took a while to cotton on to the problem.Off to see proctologist to get gravel and shingle removed from butt.Bite time
lasted more than three hours.Best morning ever.02/02/2011 at 3:09 am #17404HIPPParticipant
