Nice video, handy for an amateur like me still trying for my first. Will try and find some nice water like that next time I’m out, spent the morning out on the rakaia today but no luck01/02/2014 at 9:39 am #24654
Shark slayer – what river were you fishing if you don’t mind me asking?
Kev – top video, very helpful also01/02/2014 at 9:55 am #24655
hurunui mate…I bag limited out before anyone caught anything…the egg beaters beat the overheads today haha..14 in all my second was the heaviest of the day..one other around the 12lb mark the rest were 10 and under.lots of fish dropped..the usual hook pulled from trying to horse fish with 50lb braid and stiff 12 foot rods with no action…such a waste of an awesome fighting fish.02/02/2014 at 4:59 am #24659
Awesome man, you must of been fishing the north side

Any one know if there is any salmon in the ranhitata gorge? And what lures work best there02/02/2014 at 8:16 pm #24663
yea Kris fish taken on Southside aswel….went down the rangitata with donnie for a couple hours messing around yesterday arvo..couldn’t be bothered with salmon was having fun on the kahawai instead..but hooked a salmon anyway up in the gut..it was a heavy fish..big head shakes but some dickhead casted into my gear and ripped the hook out of my salmon…I was not a happy chappy..should have cut his gear off but didn’t have a knife on me..I hate the crowded mouths and that sort of shot shows why I avoid them…by the way is the average age of salmon anglers 85??? where is the newblood!!03/02/2014 at 3:23 am #24664burkefishParticipant
one day SS if you are lucky you might reach that age and then you will be the one tangling other anglers line lol.03/02/2014 at 8:22 pm #24665

7 fish at macintoshs today, getting closer to landing one ,had a hit head shake then gone then hooked another one that after playing me for 10 minutes or so got bored and spate the hook. never saw it just long powerful runs every time within a metre or 2 from the bank. always tomorrow.04/02/2014 at 9:05 am #24668
haha yea burkefish and slightly pooping myself while playing big salmon…at least you hooked a couple today mate hopefully you land them next time…no donnie I don’t fish. your way I give the fish a level playing feild…my name is not Malcolm bell….hurunui is dead at the moment..1 fish taken yesterday and none today…surf is rough..and the lagoon is to low and clear with no flow…the forecast isn’t flash either…next week I reckon04/02/2014 at 11:43 pm #24670
