Can anyone give me some info on where to fish in Nelson. Taking the surfcaster up there at New Year and need a spot that is productive and child friendly. Would love to hook a snapper for the first time. Any help would be great cheers.
Cable bay, Rabbit Island, Tahunanui back beach are all possibilities for a snapper. I think one of the warves is open to the public for fishing and there is a platform on Rocks road that is pretty much opposite the cut that you can fish from.
Hi mate. Havnt been down the pier for a couple of weeks but prior to that I was catching plenty of rig and eles but most of them were too small to justify keeping. Will be trying again over the next couple of weeks then I am off to nelson for a week as well, so hope to get into a kingi and snapper or three myself.
