I think that the Abu 7000 would be the most used in the South Island since a lot of people use it for salmon fishing. [color=black]Daiwa &02/09/2007 at 11:25 am #8595

Thought I’d post this here to as a latest catches article, comments can go in the Kaikoura surfcasting trip thread.
This was a great trip and a first for me in terms of getting a decent fish surfcasting! I’ve caught the odd doggie before surfcasting and that’s what put me off it for a little while there. But Kaikoura produced the goods and according to Greg (HEAD) and his dad the fishing was only moderate and better days can be had. The Salmon caught by Booger was certainly cool though!
First went to South Bay and started fishing around 11:45am, left there about 1pm or maybe 1:30pm after no fish had been caught. Not even any bites! Mind you the tide was very low only just coming back in, with these steeply shelved beaches one would think it might not matter as much but yeah……. Grabbed some lunch and went to the old railway station and fished there.08/09/2007 at 5:25 pm #8769
went for a fish n the kaiapoi and the waimak mouth08/09/2007 at 7:54 pm #8770HookLineSinkerParticipant
Went for a stroll down to the beach this avo, with the partner and daughter to tag along. Anyway had some pleasing results for this time of year. Caught two good sized skates 4kg and 6kg a couple of small school sharks and most pleasing of all a nice fat rig to take home; so members this might be a indicator that there is fish out there to be caught go out there and find!!!08/09/2007 at 10:17 pm #8772Jones Jr.Participant
Good catches there HookLineSinker! Hopefully the fish are coming back from the winter cold.
Me and Greg had a good time visiting the mouth of the Waimak and the Kaiapoi river today catching mullet. I didn’t really believe this catching mullet on 2/0 hooks etc, and these huge mullet. However, I think I’ve changed my mind after todays trip. When I first arrived at the Waimak what do I see but Greg pulling in a nice sized mullet and he caught it on a 3/0 hook intended for Kaiwhai! LOL. Who would’ve thought eh! I didn’t get anything at the mouth of the Waimak so we went to the Kaiapoi.
I got 3 nice big mullet, heaps enough for bait. Got my biggest mullet to date to! It wasn’t a 1kg monster but it was big! Will enter it in the mullet chanps to kick things off. One of the mullet I caught was on a 2/0 black magic hook! LOL.
And as Greg said he got a fresh water cray surprisingly, tucked inside a bottle his hook got caught into when he was winding his line in.
Nice mullet caught on 2/0 black magic hook, it hooked onto the fish exactly as you see here.
My big mullet! Next to a 600ml Coke Bottle. I caught this one on a smaller more typical sprat sized hook.
Greg’s freshwater cray on top of a bucket lid. Greg also got alot of mullet today.
I always seem to make an essay out of each fishing trip, oh well. Something to do eh? LOL
