    Hi Zac, Kaiwhai at the pier today were of a nice big size. Not huge but a good sized kaiwhai. Perhaps the same or slightly smaller than my kaiwhai from Kaikoura.

    There were no mullet about, although I suspect I got “mulletesh” type bites at one point but that’s it. Surprisingly not one dogfish seen.

    Hey Wiz, the kaiapoi river seems to be a mullet hot spot. Or the mouth of the Waimak river. Just fish the Kaiapoi anywhere south of the main bridge that goes through town, try find a quite spot and chuck your line in. Closer to Chch I’ve seen good catches of nice sized mullet in the Avon river between say where Wainoni Rd and the Pages Rd bridges are. I haven’t fished there in a while tho.

    Cheers

    Hey Wiz,

    birdlings flat and baileys beach are worth a crack. Take the road to akaroa and turn off at the signpost (about 30 mins drive). Have caught seven gill sharks, school sharks, rig, elephant fish, kahawai, red cod, skate and electric rays here. You can buy a map with canterbury surfcasting locations from rebel sport that has a few more options too. They are called spot x maps.

    Nice to hear the Kahawai are about off the pier, usually means they will be about off the southern beaches too. Might have to have a crack out at baileys beach next weekend depending on weather and tides.

    Baileys beach is the beach at the end of the kaitoreti spit road, instead of going around the left to birdlings you go over the cattle stops and continue on down the gravel road to the car park. the beach is accessible by 4wd or a short walk.

    Somtimes it is quite busy. If you go later at night there arn’t usually as many people and all the asian people have usually left. I havn’t really fished in that many places north of Christchurch so I don’t really know any other places you could try.
