    Yeh m8 its slowed right down have not seen a salmon caught for two days now …
    Although most anglers seem more interested in chasing the kahawai at moement …
    Great fun on light gear …

    Had a poke down at the waimak today, only one caught at the mctosh’s nothing at the mouth (up until 12 o clock). However a small numbers of kingfish have been taken around the mouth.

    Are they catching the kingfish on the standard salmon lures?

    And are they right at the mouth or inside the mouth a bit?

    Not sure where exactly they caught them ( i didn’t see them caught) but out in the surf where everyone goes after kawai. Yea they were caught on ticers and using a really fast retrieve.

    One of the kingis I saw caught last friday was on a blue fox jig with a blue head.

    I got a couple 250gram lures that the guy at complete angler recommended. None of the other kingfish type lures were heavy enough to get any distance on the cast. Might not even get around to using them, depends if I have time and the conditions are good. Wouldn’t expect the kingies to be around for much longer as I’ve never heard of them being around like this before.

    The kingfish usually arrive in canterbury waters around feb so are early.When the conditions are right ;nice smooth seas with lots of kahawai around , the kingies will be there. The weather pattern over the summer will keep them around.

    Spent after tea fishing the Wairau for Salmon, covered a lot of ground and nice looking spots were few. Still found enough water to fish, but caught nothing apart from sticks and a broom plant.
