    oh so you mean more in the lagoon on the south side by the river that goes into that? ive seen many more by the river that enters it by the car park onthe north side of the river cant think of the name of it. and i used to see alot of them close in my the bar but not anymore. i believe later on inthe year is a better time to go for flounder inthe mouth more winter isnt it?

    I’ve heard of people catching them at low tide, with minute hooks and the smallest crab you can find or a sea worm.
    This was near Dunedin out at Blue skin bay.

    Decided to give the avon river a go for some mullet, i live on the upper section of avonside drive opp porrit park so have the river at my driveway across the road but never bothered about trying for anything. Caught 3 good sized mullet in about 15 mins and a couple of good sized eels the eve before. Pretty good i suppose if i need some fresh bait for surfcasting then i can just head out the door and across the rd. I also smoked the eels and 1 of the largest mullets they were quite tasty.

    Fished over the low tide this afternoon, (Grabbed last weeks newspaper and thought I was fishing the incoming tide). Around dusk I caught a nice sized Snapper on squid, and a while later caught his friend on a gulp crab. Was a bit of a sea breeze when I first arrived but it died down. Fished from 4pm-8pm.

    Had a uneventful evening fishing the peak and outgoing tide in the grove arm. Caught nothing. Nice and calm.

    went out to the right of the island ,about middle of it and about 500 mts from it, but only driffed around did not anchor, might have to try again when weather is good, might have to get a mobil fish finder to see the botton and find some reefs
