    Interesting to hear. If I had a quad bike I would not of been fishing at the carpark, although would of been a social thing. I should get a bike so I can get up to the white bluffs.

    The main issue I have with fishing comps is that you often have to kill all the fish so you can use them for a comp. Normally I release large fish ASAP. I do keep the odd rig though.

    Just had a idea. I should get a fishfinder on my kayak and map the bottom terrain at blind river to locate a few depressions and other structure to hopefully give me a unfair advantage. But I suspect most of the fish swim quite close and parallel to the shore anyway.

    I went down to Timaru this morning and fished most of the day. I caught a few mullet when I got there, but seemed to have really bad luck with them for the rest of the day, when the person just down from me was catching them throughout the day. I caught a tiny Tarakihi later on in the day, and i’m sure I saw some medium sized Moki swimming around in the kelp. Other catches were just Warehou.

    On the big rod with the shark trace I had just made up I caught two big carpet sharks, both using Dogfish for bait as I had run out of mullet and had no other option. Someone else caught a Carpet shark earlier on in the day as well. I’ve caught five carpet sharks in the last month there out of about six trips, so there must be a lot around at the moment.

    I am thinking of having a fish at the beach across from the wharf next time, or trying off the break water casting north. I want to target seven gillers and just see if there are many around, and also another Stingray would be nice.

    Apart from big orange crabs I have never seen any while diving around Kaikouria. I suggest you capture a few at the pier before leaving. I have never tried this, but if you keep them in a cold wet towel they should survive for a couple of days.

    Sometimes big groups of asians come out in the early hours of the morning after midnight with massive crab catchers and get huge amounts of crabs. They know its illegal, otherwise they wouldn’t be coming so late.
