Anyone local to Dunedin, want to show me the ropes about salt water fishing?
Done a fair bit of fresh water fishing but not much in the salt….

try ya luck in the harbour for a salmon!!!!!!! or many of the jetties if your allowed to fish off im sure will produce thins such as red cod maybe gurnard01/09/2008 at 8:52 am #10891
Ta, I have heard about the salmon
but its a darn big harbor and I really dont have a clue about rigs and what line to use.01/09/2008 at 8:58 am #10892
im not too sure maybe a silver lure/spinner would work like you would in fresh water for salmon/ or a whole pilchard suspended under a float01/09/2008 at 9:05 am #10893
otherwise fishing in the harbour with maybe 30lb line 3 3/0 hooks of 4/0 hooks with something like shellfish pillie bonito squid or mullet for bait could pick up other various species off some wharves or something,01/09/2008 at 9:07 am #10894

In Dunedin’s Otago Harbour they catch most of the salmon on dead sprats fished from the wharves. You can catch the sprats (small fish see: https://fishingmag.co.nz/deepsea-sprat.htm) with a second lighter rod and small bait flies. You are allowed to use two rods in this instance. The locals also get the salmon with paravanes and lures trolled behind boats near the harbour entrance. During summer some of the boat guys get salmon up to 20 lbs nearly everytime they go out. Ask at Ellios in South Dunedin, or Hunting and Fishing. They will show you how to set up your gear to get a salmon. Yellowfin02/09/2008 at 7:29 am #10904

Hey AndyJD have you fished off that boulder bank at the mouth of the harbour? or even off that beach? Is it Aramoana? I had a look out there when I was last in Dunedin and I was fully hangin out to fish it.Looked nice and deep and looked pretty promising for blue cod and maybe Moki around the kelp.Maybe some good sharks to be had on that beach if you are into that14/09/2008 at 8:06 am #10973
Despite all the planning i’ve not managed to get out fishing yet, blinking work keeps getting in the way
