    Went fishing at the lake grassmere intake… there was a bunch of guys fishing on the pier when I got there. They had around half a dozen skates and a red cod.

    I went a bit further down the beach and fished for a couple of hours but caught nothing.

    Hi i fish this area often myself and find it amazing how people are attracted to the pier, i find though that the best place here is just to the south past the small tower and down to where there is a slight gut in the beach. Here i have caught fish everytime ive been there, species being Rig, Skate, Red cod, School sharks and spinys, and all of the times have not been that ideal in fishing terms ie usually has been during the day. Hope this helps mili.

    Would check it out. I believe someone was fishing at the spot you mention when I was there.

    After leaving the peir, I followed a ‘sand road’ heading to the north and it ended at same cliffs. Thought that it looked much better then the pier for fishing. A more varied sea bed for starters. Have you tried that spot?

    Yea tried it once but there was a big swell running and cross wind so didnt last long but otherwise i would say yip its a good spot for sure and ur right about the sea bed variation it looks good at low tide sometimes the waves almost apear to dance as they sweep over the number of small sand bars so would be good fishing. Id say a west or west nor west aind and this particular spot would be supreme eveing place to fish.

    One other thing to when the wind is more northerly it tends to swing through the cook strait and blow right in here and is very hard to fish just a word of advice if you were not already aware.

    Went down to timaru today. It looks like the fishing is picking up there. First thing I caught was a reasonable sized carpet shark (pics below). Didn’t catch much after that, but I saw a few mullet following my bait up, so I decided to try catch a few. Ended up only getting two good sized ones. Just as I was packing up, I hooked up to a big Red Cod, so I will probably be going back next weekend to try catch some more.

    Not sure of the exact size, and yes It was caught off the wharf. It didnt look very healthy but I removed the hook and threw it back.

    Looks like some other fish has tried to eat it at some point.

    I’ve caught two carpet sharks, 85cm and 90cm. They’re fatter than the other small sharks, but still not that heavy. The two I got both had eggs inside them.

    The fishing at the pier is still pretty average, it’s a long time between bites most days. In the last few weeks I’ve seen red cod, barracouta,

    If there are a lot of barracouta around at the pier I might go up and try get a few. Do you know if there are many Kahawai and Mullet around there?

    I haven’t seen anything caught in good numbers at the pier lately.
