Off the wharf? Otherwise any popular fishing spots could be worth a try.29/08/2010 at 12:28 am #15909fishforpotParticipant
Been years since Ive bothered chasing “puss” cod as we used to call them ….
Id try nearer river mouths , they come into the shallows to feed on dusk and into the night ….cast into the back of the breaking wave …thats where they feed most29/08/2010 at 8:52 pm #15923
Thanks for the advice guys.
Any bait they particularly like?29/08/2010 at 10:52 pm #15925
They take most baits but salted bonito and squid has worked for me when I haven’t had access to fresh baits like yellow eyed mullet.01/09/2010 at 7:59 pm #15940mulletmanParticipant

one night years ago my mate and I caught a large red cod each at the Wanganui river mouth near Imlay meatworks..they were big long and fat…when he gutted his he found a cod the same size inside it..When I gutted mine I found a small kitten inside..Red cod will often swallow anything…
