same family of fish as the spottie!!!10/01/2008 at 5:18 pm #9886MiliwolfParticipant
If you ever go for a dive, I suspect you would find, atleast on the eastcoast rocky shoreline that Banded Wrasse would be the most common ‘large’ fish in the shallows. They are very plentiful.12/01/2008 at 12:18 pm #9902
I guess The Banded Wrasse would mistakenly be called a spotty quite alot. Heading out for a surfcast this evevning, taking gf for the first time. Although she calls it a picnic!12/01/2008 at 11:30 pm #9907

Jeez now thats a mixed bag! Sounds like you fella’s had a good run down there.What did you catch the moki on mate?13/01/2008 at 12:04 am #9910

ha the ol shellfish seducer! No wonder. Havnt been to that wharf since August or there abouts,must make a trip down there if its goin off.
Prawns,mussels and cray I can manage but the scallops would be goin in my mouth not the moki’s13/01/2008 at 12:18 am #9914Jones Jr.Participant
Bought a cray to see how wonderful this bait would be, got one smallish moki on it so had to put back. Got no other moki on it. Scallops…..I’d say put them in your mouth to, they worked for greg with a nice moki off the beach (mind you combined with a bit of prawn on the same hook!). So yeah….
That narrows it down to mussel and prawn as the best bait for moki . Will post more on this cool trip tomorrow with a few pics.

Went down to Timaru wharf today. Got about 50 mullet overall, and came back with 48 minus the ones I used for bait. Some massive schools of good size mullet were around some of the boats that came in. Other than the mullet, just got a few baby red cod. No carpet sharks this time.13/01/2008 at 12:35 am #9920

What size hooks and bait did you catch the butterfish on?13/01/2008 at 7:53 am #9927HookLineSinkerParticipant
Went to the beach with the partner on friday evening and there wasnt alot happening in fact i only managed a small spiny and a skate it was strangely quiet for an evening incoming tide. But my partner had some better luck she managed to get a redcod and then a good school shark all 13kg’s of it, this gave the cheap xmas rod (a kilwell import fiberglass)13/01/2008 at 1:57 pm #9929
