    Tried fishing at Saltwater creek by the rowing club this morning Rig_slasher. No sign of any fish.water was really low though so maybe that had something to do with the lack of fish.

    Went down to Kaikoura this morning, drifted through the work ups and caught plenty of large Kahawai and two Rat Kingfish. Deep down was quite a few snakes also. A school of 7-8 Rats chased a lure right to my kayak where I saw one grab the lure and the rest zoomed off underneath. Was fun until the southerly hit.

    Have speared them before, but first caught on a rod. They would of been around 50cm, so a bit smaller then the typical Kahawai I was also catching. Try and wind in your lure as quickly as possible, try and out speed the Kahawai and it should give the Rats a chance to grab the lure.

    well done on the milestone then mili a first kingi of any size is a big acheivement especialy in the south..im gonna head up next good weather break and chuck out livies…i had a feeling i should have last week there was just something about the workups that seemed different than usual..just way more intense and i saw a few kahawai leap out of the water as if being chased that was a few days before you guys were dowm there tho..kingis and thresher sharks haunt my dreams haha would be nice to cross one off the list. :grin:

    The snakes could make short work of any live baits you send out.
