checked out the wharf lastnight and saw quite alot of moki and some were goodsize atleast 10lbs.I didint end up gettin anythin,had the wrong bait.
I tried mussles,crayfish instant bait,berkley gulp crabs,couta and squid for bait on 2/0 and 4/0 hooks.Not sure what was going on but they just werent taking anything so maybe they just werent feeding or somethin I dont know but they were chasing up the baits on retrevial and man some of them were big .No hook ups so im headin back next weekend if the weathers good25/03/2007 at 12:40 pm #7791
Sounds awsome about the Moki, I’ll have to get up there sometime.
Do you think the night would be more productive than at day time for moki?

From what ive heard the moki tend to come out of the kelp and into the open to feed at night but with the right baits I think you can get them fairly easily from the rocks during the day.I like to fish from wharves at night especially if theres a light because I noticed with some wharves in the sounds that you can fish there during the day and not get anything but once it gets dark and the light comes on it seems to just come alive.Like last night in Kaikoura I saw plenty of moki,a few coutas,kahawai and some goodsize garfish.The only thing landed was a tarakihi about 15cm so that was quickly let go.Hope the weather stays good this week and Ill head back down and try again.25/03/2007 at 3:45 pm #7794
it is by far bets for moki at night i got a couple during daylight hours with a30/03/2007 at 8:50 pm #7806
you should try something like bonito or pillie for bait we found that to be quite good also from the petrol stations in kaikoura you can get27/04/2007 at 8:47 pm #7984
i have now since learned that what i thought were red cod up in kaiakoura that i were catching where actually19/05/2007 at 7:12 pm #8062
Was wondering if anyone has done any fishing around Kaikouria recently, been thinking of taking a trip down there shortly and was wondering if it is worth the effort at this time of year.19/05/2007 at 7:32 pm #8063
um a recent report from20/05/2007 at 12:40 am #8070
I havnt been to Kaikoura for about a month so due for a night there next wknd if the weather stays kind.The last trip down there I got a couple of moki and a small tarakihi off the wharf and just north of Kaikoura I got a cod type fish off the beach that id never seen before.It turned out to be a true Maori chief (not a sea perch! I had to take a pic for identification purposes lol:D20/05/2007 at 6:36 am #8072
was it similar to a red cod just alot darker?20/05/2007 at 2:29 pm #8076
It was a similar shape to a blue cod,firm,round fins and big head.It was black and yellow and the markings on its head sort of looked like a tattoo! Cant see the colours too good in the pic cos its covered in sand.It measured about 40cm long and it came out of some real foul ground on a prawn.20/05/2007 at 5:27 pm #8079
ohhh ok then20/05/2007 at 6:03 pm #8081
Was wondering what size hooks do you guys generally use to catch moki and Sevengill Sharks?20/05/2007 at 6:10 pm #8082
For Seven Gills i would use quite big hooks around 10/0 but for moki use smaller hooks under 5/0
