During salmon season lots of jokers use either prawn or pillies under a float in the kaiapoi and seem to do quite well.20/09/2007 at 6:25 pm #9013

I am not a fan of eaten any trout. I release 90% of the ones I catch.
Typically if it is a good condition sea run or is living in a clean river they should be decent eaten. I would avoid keeping trout from smaller rivers ect mainly because the population is generally low.
When I use to spin fish. My favourite trout lures were
Black and Gold Toby
Blue and Gold Spin-blade
Orange and Gold Spin-blade
I like these ones but I am certain others would work.

If the water is clear then I would fish with a minnow imitation. Soft plastics can work well but the ‘non scented’ selection is quite small. Had good results on Rapala lures but they are quite hard to cast a long distance.21/09/2007 at 7:16 pm #9034
I will be going up to fish at the pier for most of tomorow. I will probably go up early before 12 and stay as long as I am catching anything. Hopefully I will be able to get one of these big Kahawai that I have heard about from a few people that fished there last weekend.21/09/2007 at 7:27 pm #9035
I was at the pier last saturday, there was a group of about 6 asian guys that were catching most of the kahawai, looked like they were using bonito or something similar looking, on 6 hook ‘flashy’ ledger rigs. As soon as they turned up my baits were ignored by the fish (6 guys x 2 rods each x 6 baits each = 72 baits to compete with).21/09/2007 at 7:33 pm #9036
I will probably take two rods but only use one at a time. Maybe one 7 foot one for the kahawai and one 12 foot one for anything else, not that I think there will be anything other than small School sharks, dogfish and kahwai around. Hopefully there might be some Yellow Eyed Mullet arround21/09/2007 at 8:15 pm #9037
