    I think you’ll find he was having a windup. Copied and pasted those pics off the internet trolling trying to get a bite. (which you have)

    on another note, there were a few fish around at macintoshs today. unfortunately not near me, though i did manage 3 flounders of various sizes. seems to me that the mak this year has reverted to a pattern we haven’t seen for about 10 years.

    Haha Whitebaitpro, lol, quite the yarn teller, good for a laugh.

    I fished the Waimak Gorge last evening, left it a bit late getting there, a few others fishing, no sign of Salmon, had a trout splash right below my rod tip, that was the peak of ecitement lol, Still a bit of colour in the water up there too.

    Well, I been fishing 2 days solid, puttin in around 6hrs/day hooked 2, but didnt convert. This is my first trip to NZ for salmon. They are dfinately diferent to Canadian atlantic salmon in many ways to fish.
    Sun. I saw one fish caught at the waimak mouth, and around 8 in the afternoon at Mac rock.
    Mon. saw 2 before 8 at the mouth and around 14 fish for Mack rock till I left around 4ish
    Tues. I hooked 2, but no cigar. and 1 was caught while I was there. at the rock around 12-14 was caught, 2 fisho got their bag limit.
    Didnt get a chance to see Kev. which is a shame.
    Had a fish today nothing at the mouth until 8 and at the rock 3 fish caught when I left a 9.30Am So now I’m at Kaikoura hoping to go for a fish at the mouth of the Huiruni or behing the train station at Kaikoura
    Be back at The waimak on Sat to do a last fish before I head back to OZ.
    The most outstanding thing over the last 3 days was I saw some monster salmon caught especially the 3 early sunday at Mac rock, all were way over 20lbs barely fitting the landing net, but the rest were around around 10ish pound.
    and thanks to the yobbo in the blue jack and green waders north side of Kaiapoi creek mouth, Tues arvo you know who you are. It’s people like you that give anglers a redneck yobbo stereotype. Fishing is social activity, If you want the whole river to yourself I suggest you buy a helicopter and go find some new found wilderness.
    But saying that I had a very good fishing experience and made new friends, I’ve even manage to organise for a few Kiwis to visit OZ, I’ll put them up and take them out for dee sea fishing when they visit .

    Thanks wasn, good update, I have been wondering how it was going this week as I have had to work. I was at Macintoshes briefly Monday morning and it seemed pretty quiet – I should have hung around a bit longer from the sound of it!
    Might have to sneak out early Friday morning I think… but Mac rock or the mouth, its a hard choice to make.
    Anyway, hope to see you out there one day (I’m a fellow Aussie)
