Hey Head did you go out last night? If you did, did you catch much? I’m thinking about going for a fish tonight.12/08/2007 at 1:59 pm #8409

I went down to the Wairau Bar this afternoon. Fished from around 2pm-5:30pm.
Caught 1 red cod, did not see any other fish caught. In the general area there must of been about 20-25 people fishing.
On the coast about 1km from the mouth I did a bit of surfcasting. After about 15 minutes a Seal turned up so attempted to feed it, but it was scared. Left the beach and returned to the bay.
Tried Berkley maggots and worms with no luck.12/08/2007 at 8:08 pm #8411
Ha ha oh well. I’ve decided I’ll give the fishing a miss tonight, not feeling very well.12/08/2007 at 8:47 pm #8412

what were u using for bait booger?14/08/2007 at 7:33 pm #8418
Got the blue cod on a small strip of squid body, and the dogfish on anchovies (not that they’re picky). I wasn’t 100% sure what the cod was at the time as it was a greenish colour, or if it was a legal size, but it was hooked in an organ and was oozing yellow fluid so I decided to keep it.
After watching that Coastwatch program on TV I’m thinking it’s probably worthwhile taking a measuring tape and one of those free brochures you get from fishing shops that list legal sizes –14/08/2007 at 8:52 pm #8419

Went to Birdlings last night and fished a few hours after dark with a couple friends. We caught a spiny dog every throw but no red cod (or blue cod) unfortunately.15/08/2007 at 5:06 pm #8421

Fished at Timaru Wharf on Saturday night for a couple hours with Jones Jr. Caught 7 cod all up. All of and above legal size although we did put them all back. Noticed a seal swimming just meters off the wharf at one stage, so may have affected the fishing, im not sure.
