    I fish mostly the mouth of the Waimak. Last year mostly the south side and picked up an 11lb fish there which was my only one for the season. Have been to the Orari, Rangi and Rakaia for a couple of early morning goes in the surf but its been either too big or too dirty to bother having a cast.

    Does anyone know if the lock has been changed this year for the south side of the waimak ?

    nothing taken this week when I have been there. Some good kahawai tho mostly by the guys chasing them near the surf. Some guys reckon a couple of salmon a day have been caught but I haven’t seen anything. The guys at Hunting and Fishing told me 15 fish were taken in the surf at the Rangi on Friday morning. I was there from sunrise till about 10am and my mate and I were the only two in the surf so I don’t know where they got their intel from !

    Yeah north side. When I got there I new the north side looked better. The south side was shallow as. Tried to cast over to the deep patch in front of the north but couldn’t get that far. Will have a look there later this week and try to pull a couple out.
