I had a couple of short fishing sessions during my week working in Auckland, before getting driven away by very heavy rain, didn’t get anything, just small bites. I went to Orakei wharf and there were lots of guys there trying to catch squid. I went under the harbour bridge and found that the stuck up yacht clubs down there don’t allow fishing in their area, and just outside of the yacht clubs you can’t fish from 9:30pm-6am.28/07/2008 at 6:44 am #10789SevengillzParticipant
ha typical Maybe if you pulled up in a benz sporting an armani suit you wouldve been right29/07/2008 at 5:03 am #10791
I forget the exact reason why fishing was banned there, something regarding the safety of the public.20/08/2008 at 11:07 pm #10811

Welcome back Greg!
Heading out for a fish tomorow, round banks peninsula somewere. Bought a new rod and reel, a TICA TC2 Graphite rod and shimano Aernos XT loaded with braid. Really sensitive rod, light moki fishing setup. Weather tomorow doesnt look to bad, light winds evening high tide.22/08/2008 at 9:59 pm #10819
thanks steve. went for a fish to the waimak mouth last night got about 15 red cod. all too small to really bother about though so released them all24/08/2008 at 1:38 am #10821
Went down to Birdlings yesterday, weather wasnt to bad but the swell was a little to big so only chased out about 3 times!24/08/2008 at 3:24 am #10822
Still waiting for spring. Soon the doggies would leave and the lemons would return.24/08/2008 at 3:42 am #10824St_PaulParticipant
Yup, hangin out for the snaps to come back! went for a bit of a fish yesterday in picton harbour. bugger all about despite a healthy burley trail. Another fella nearby managed to foul hook a monkfish on a fly which was quite a surprise.24/08/2008 at 4:38 am #10825
I been hitting the river mouths hard with the fly rod but caught nothing so far…24/08/2008 at 5:55 am #10826
Just been looking at the sea temps on swellmap and cloudy bay appears to be around 15c, Have no idea how they collect the information but assuming the data is correct we might start getting more interesting species soon. Clifford bay is still around 14.3c and it is even colder further south.
edit: Just read a few reports from this time last year. The first rig was reported early september, then quite a few mullets and the odd KY being caught.
I believe that on the 1st of September last year we did our kaikoura trip and Booger caught his Salmon.25/08/2008 at 5:12 am #10829

with the weather the way it is at the moment looks as if the rivermouths will be a no go for a bit. Its absolutely teeming down in picton right now! The wairau looked too thick to drink and too thin to plough. will this rain never end!!
