Went to a salty location again yesterday and caught several school sharks, one keeper and to big red cod released. Hooked up on a big shark (rig,schoolshark? dontknow) that surfaced when it took the bait and the headed for wellington managed to turn it and gain some line but it was only on a nylon trace so couldnt put to much pressure on the result i thought it broke through but found the bugger managed to spit the hookv it was large when i seen it break the surface (id say it was easily over 10kgs and took a prawn bait). Then a while later had something pick up a spottie and alsmost take my rod withit, it drop it and then tookit again while i had my back turned, but managed break/bite off the leader line above my trace- bugger!
There were surprisingly no spinys caught for three hours fishing just schoolys and a few red cod. So i looks like the fishing is hot and should be from now through to mid march.06/01/2008 at 2:15 pm #9754

When I caught my large tope, the next cast on the same bait landed a baby school shark. But one fish does not make a trend. I was using 4/0 hooks.
I only have the motivation to spend 3 or 4 hours fishing, then I get bored or hungry. So do not have the time to notice different tides.06/01/2008 at 11:44 pm #9785
I’ve been saving the red cod I get in Timaru for shark bait, since I don’t really like eating them that much. At the moment i’ve got a wire trace set up with a 8/0 hook ready to target seven gillers. So far i’ve caught three Carpet sharks on it.

If your going to get hungry thats why you take food with you. I somehow don’t get bored while fishing, even if i’m not catching anything. Sometimes I go fishing at about 9 and stay till midnight, so I think the longest i’ve fished was only 15 hours, but I still don’t seem to get bored.07/01/2008 at 12:00 am #9788
