    Spent yesterday down the Kaikoura wharf.It was a long day and in the end I come away with 2 45cm Blue Moki’s,several different members of the wrasse family and a bastard red cod(not the typical red cod we see)
    There was alot of baby Tarakihi being caught all under 10cm.
    The wrasse were 2 banded,1 green and a couple of spotties and there were all fairlie big so they went into the bait bin and hopefully will be going into a sharks mouth tomorrow if the weather isnt too bad.
    It was quite funny fishing amongst the foreigners because some of the fish caused quite a stir! When the Banded wrasse turned up I was being told they were Moki! A Green Wrasse I pulled up had a couple of people buzzing because they were determined it was a butterfish! In the end I gave up arguing. :grin:
    There was a slight sou-east breeze that didnt let up at all and the water was pretty dirty.So hopefully there will be a few more Moki next time.

    Hey TFG, those moki you and Jones jr got in Kaikoura,where you casting from the wharf or just dropping? The two I got came from between the piles on the end of the wharf under that light.

    casting about 2 m off the wharf so pretty much straight down you no doubt would have seen the thousands of small fish swimming on the surface???? they are all baby tarakihi

    Nah mate thats what suprised me.There wasnt alot of activity at all just a few shoals of small herring.There were alot of small Tarakihi getting caught but they seem to be coming from close to the bottom.I went down there a few times in the winter and after dark when that light come on then the water seemed to be teeming witrh life.I remember seing Mullet,Garfish,Cudas,Tarakihi and the odd moki.Im guessing it was the conditions at the time.

    I went for a fish at the Timaru Wharf today. Mainly to get more mullet for surfcasting bait. Only ended getting 5, but I also caught a baby salmon around the same size as the mullet I was getting. Saw a few big red cod getting caught as well.

    zac grab some crabs for dorie great for rig and a majic bait if they are there one bait for rig and one bait for other fish. 5 herring will be plenty that way. well zac you are a very keen fishermen and i can see you will hook maui at the contest on sunday cant wait . i caught all my schoolies on squid today my herring was to old and mushy

    at timaru i heard there are big salmon been caught do you see people with floats with pilles on them it works wonders for salmon .

    All the wind has been is northeasterlies it seems. I think the sea has been calming down a bit over night though. But there has been basicly no westerlies for ages now.
