    Made it out to Mainwarings yesterday, 4 x spineys for my effort :sad: , pulled the pin around 6pm as the swell and wind started to pick up, guessing it did not last long.

    Anytime, it all comes down to what you yourself can handle if you dont mind rain or wind well that helps as long as its not too rough of a sea it wont matter in kaikoura

    We spent the weekend at a holiday house in Kaikoura near the New World supermarket, so I walked down the back and went for a fish on Friday night. I brought back a 50cm flatfish – either a large sole or maybe a turbot or brill??

    I also lost what would’ve been 2 large rig – one either got off the hook or let go of the crab, the other bent the hook (must stop using mutsu hooks from the warehouse except for smaller fish). Lots of dogfish around plus the occasional red cod but the cod weren’t quite fat enough for my liking.

    Didn’t catch any dogfish (or red cod) once I switched to crab + cooked prawn, although I think the fishing was quietening down then anyway.

    Had a unsuccessful fish at Karaka point last night… Not much wind and overcast conditions, I hate boats….

    This was my first visit to Karaka at low tide… Was disappointed that there was no place for a rock spike, plus the beach is nearly impossible to push beach spikes into…. Would have thought such a popular spot would of had permanent rod holders installed… Suppose the guys who go to the effort to install rod holders normally make the effort to access less popular sites.

    Anyway, eventually found a half secure spot for my rock spike. Burley in water, cast after cast and could not catch a KY. Evenutally foul hooked a large garfish, which quickly died on me… Live bait attempt failed almost before it started. Was now getting dark so decided not to waste the trip and change to strayline rigs and targeted Snapper… not even a bite. Gave up around 9pm. There must be a better kingie point then Karaka, just need to find it.

    Well Arty Farty One, been chasing Rig by day and snapper by night. Lots of small snapper over here at the moment. Legals, Pannies but you need a small pan. :grin:
    Scored a few Rig in my daytime adventures, got a 4lb snapper last night, so I can take the big pan out. Had seven good Rig hits today, and not one hook up. The buggars were just mouthing and dropping, prawns came back in mangled. Got one about 12lb yesterday. A few Greyboys along the way. The sea is like a lake over here. Due to change Monday with a southerly coming through. Made up some exquisite Fish stock today, with my saved up snapper heads and wings and bits. (De-gilled) as that makes the stock bitter. Will make a great Fish Soup Base. Saw a bad sign today. Spotted a dead fish being cast up on the beach. Oh no, it was one of them, the Red Devils, the rest of the herd cant be far off and their little spikey mates. Last of the Summer Wine eh. So I am out everyday while good fish are around, the sea is flat, and it is a nice sunny day.

    Cheers Trev
