Cool to hear about the Elephant fish being caught, especially on a prawn! lol. A good Tuatua bait wrapped in some of that elastic cotton would hopefully do the trick to I would think.

tried to go to amberley beach today although looked to rough with breakers starting31/03/2007 at 5:43 pm #7811
Went to Lyttleton again today, this time fished around by the fishing platform they have there.
Literally about 1 minute after my first cast I got one of those smallish Kaiwhai (not big but not tiny).
However that was it, got quite a few dogfish and that was it.
So have 3 herrings, two Kaiwhai and a spottie for cod bait next weekend. Will the cod show however not being winter yet??

what size cod you get and what condition was it is? any worms?31/03/2007 at 10:32 pm #7822
The cod wasn’t very big so i decided to throw it back. It was a legal size so i could have kept it. It was in excellant conditon, probably one of the most healthiest looking01/04/2007 at 5:29 pm #7825
out at the mouth of the mak again today got maybe a dozen kaiwhai but all really small the largest being maybe01/04/2007 at 6:10 pm #7826
Had a go for some mullet where all the big boats are tied up on the Kaiapoi river next to the main bridge. Got a few nibles but nothing, spent around an hour there. Was using a standar ledger rig with two small hooks and trevaly for bait, but nothing.
Went to the mouth of the mak to try our luck, got a few bites but didn’t get anything. Did you see a black VW Golf on the side of the road HEAD? That was us.
But yeah, nothing….
It’s a hard road finding the perfect mullet fishing hole, where fore art tho mullet….
