Hey all. The boys at the local sports shop were telling me this arvo there were a couple of eles caught ofthe point at south brighton and a rig taken at north shore earlier this week. So its out of the freezer with some pipis and crabs and off down the pier on saturday evening to start stocking up the freezer.15/10/2008 at 8:27 pm #11229ciliarisParticipant
That’s like a starting gun to me!! Whoop whoop!17/10/2008 at 10:50 am #11241
Just spent from 6pm to 11pm at the saltworks, used prawn for bait. Conditions were nice, moon rise was just after 11pm (large moon). Caught zero fish.
A bunch of guys on the pier caught a large skate and plenty of KY between 6pm and nightfall.
Had a crab pot off the pier for a while, ended up getting it stuck. So if anyone wants to try and pull it free it is connected to a orange/yellow/green rope tied near the end of the wharf. I could not get it to move
The rig must turn up sooner or later, I had good feelings about tonight.17/10/2008 at 8:29 pm #11245
I was going to go out today, but the weather is crap as forecasted.19/10/2008 at 1:06 am #11254
Went up to Kaikoura on friday for the night with Aaron. Fished the wharf with little succes, caught mostly spotties during the daylight then on evening and into the early night we were catching red cod. Aaron caught one moki, although undersized and I hooked up on one that fought pretty well and took my line under the wharf were it busted off. Definitly the most fight Ive had from a moki. The one disapointing thing with the wharf is the fact that the light at the end of it is no longer working, and it looks like the crane on the wharf is no longer operational, which makes me think that there no longer going to keep up with maintanince or there is going to be some major work done on it.
With out the light there I think fishing till the small wee hours wont be the same. Probably only be able to fish for a couple hours after sunset.
Also went for a surfcast on the main railway station beach, had a few bites but nothing really to get the heart racing!19/10/2008 at 1:32 am #11255
They going to build a enitely new wharf.19/10/2008 at 5:20 am #11257

Second or third time I tried the pot. I basically tried it along the entire length of the pier until it got stuck.
Just gotten back from a hour or two at the cloudy bay pine trees, caught a small shark.21/10/2008 at 4:26 am #11282
