    Nice one. I’m down Timaru way tomorrow so I might have a quick go, is this just off the beach near the harbour?

    Or I could go to the Rangitata mouth and try for salmon until it gets dark and then try for sharks after that.

    Nothing wrong with 6kg mate, any idea how big they get?, I’ve heard stories of 40lb cows but havnt seen anything close to that size myself.

    Things have been very quiet at Coopers Lagoon and Tamutu. Well for me anyway best catch in the past 2 weekends was a few doggies.

    Is anyone having any luck in these spots?

    If so what time of day and what baits? I have tried squid, crabs, soft-baits, mullets and not a lot happening :(

    Went to St Andrews last night and fished the incoming tide. Caught some crabs and small sharks early on. I used live clams, squid, and prawns for elephant fish but had no takers, so I decided to use one of my rods for shark catching.

    Ended up getting a 5kg skate.

    Yeah i was thinking the same. I haven’t seen any trawlers but there were a number of seals in the surf and a dead one on the beach.

    Is anyone having any luck around taylors mistake / boulder bay area / godley head area. I always wanted to try down by the old military installations (thru the tunnel) but its a long walk down if there are no fish :D

    I will try any bait as long as it catches fish. (I remember catching herrings and mullet many years ago on chesedale cheese.)

    Ok I will play dumb here but where is Baileys beach? I see you guys posting about it but i can’t see it on any of my maps. Does it go by any other names?

    It’s on Kaitorete spit, the land mass that separates lake ellesmere from the sea. I think it’s about a 10km drive from Birdlings flat.
