Just got back from 5 days fishing in Kaikoura – managed to catch a Pacific Pomfret, just wondering if anyone has caught many of these and what other unusual species have been caught? If was good eating.09/01/2011 at 5:53 am #17044

yellow cod from kaikoura,15/01/2011 at 7:13 pm #17144fishforpotParticipant
Ive caught a few yellow cod , was years ago ….they have a very distinctive feature , was around the gill area from memory …..
That doesnt appear to be a yellow cod , maybe a baby blue cod ? …..I could be wrong ……15/01/2011 at 8:10 pm #17146HookLineSinkerParticipant

Hi, I was on my way back to Chch from the North Island where I picked up a new boat.. kind of an impulse purchase… and decided to stop off at Kaikoura to try it out… my parents met me up there for a quick fish.. anyway, my mother hooked up something heavy that she couldn’t bring up so I took over and pulled up 2 of these puppies… nice one mom!… I understood these were Pacific Pomfret as my brother caught one of these a couple of years back also in Kaikoura and I sent the pic into the Fishing Mag to get a name of the species as I had no idea… I think they still have the article online. Here is a pic of the two just caught.. Man they are good eating!
Anyway, anyone here fishes the 22 nm reef of Lyttleton.. I was hoping my new boat is big enough to take it there, but still not sure. Any comments welcome.
Cheers.21/01/2011 at 8:21 pm #17216
ur boat looks big enough, its just a matter of finding it, we have fished there a few times in the past only getting on the reef once or twice, if we cant find the reef, we just troll for barracuta or kahawai, cut them up and try to bring in a shark21/01/2011 at 9:49 pm #17217bluehunterParticipant
Thanks for the answer… Sharks are always fun to catch.
The boat came with a Navman Tracker 5500 I’ll be getting the c-map for South Island for it… would that not have the co-ordinates for the reef on it? Cheers.
