Does anyone know whether it’s worth surfcasting in Dunedin (for anything other than the Salmon) ?18/04/2008 at 3:46 am #10565
Not 100% sure on dunners im sure rock fishing you mabe be able t pick up various wrasses etc some perhapps decent sharks in areas sting rays maybe even gurnard cause they do catch them at bluff. red cod could also be about um i dunno really i guess its just one of those things that you dont really know what ull catch unless you try. do intend on fishing dunners some time13/09/2008 at 3:31 am #10952
I don’t know, i live in Dunedin and I’m considering getting a surf-rod for myself, apparently out at the heads, Karitane and Doctors Point are good placed though for what i couldnt say i would assume, small sharks [ e.g. rig sharks, dogfish maybe tope] and as eldurino said red cod, wrasse [wrasse is butterfish isnt it?]
stingrays, and in dunedin you can get the chance of catching a seven-gill shark.
Come on people, add to this forum!

as far as i know wrasse is wrasse butterfish is a different species also known as greenbone and its beautiful eating. i dont know weather many iof us will know alot abut dunners as most of us are from canterbusy and marlborough but we will try to help as much as we can13/09/2008 at 9:47 pm #10966
well i caught a 4lb blue cod off the dunedin wharf so you could add blue cod to the surfcasting list?

surfcasting for salmon? what methods would you use for that? cut Mullet? and is it any better than just fishing off the wharf.
And yes another question , has anyone used live mullet for salmon?14/09/2008 at 5:20 am #10970
more so in the harbour. could use a whoe mullet fished under a float. a spinner or a shole pillie fished under a float i guess would work like it does here in kaiapoi14/09/2008 at 8:10 am #10974
I’m all new to this, but i’d be happy to come along for a tip. I’m in Dunedin also14/09/2008 at 12:44 pm #10975SevengillzParticipant
I havnt done any fishing in Dunners but I did a fair bit of recon work when I used to come down and I reckon on a calm day you could find possie on the rocks around the Taiaroa head area.Checked out some beaches also but the seem to be shallowish sandy surf beaches so you would either need a good setup to lobb your baits out far enough to clear the breakers or some waders and do it 90 mile beach style.
I reckon the rocks around the Tairoa head area would be the shit.Prob bigger variety of fish and alot easier to find deeper water.If I remember correctly there was a small stretch of beach on the south side of the peninsula called boulder beach?? It was all shingle and seemed to be a bit steeper than any other and it would be my choice over any sandy surf beach.
But like I said I never fished there and its been a few years but from what I saw it seemed you Southern fishers are spoilt for choice
Let us know how you get on19/09/2008 at 8:08 am #10994

lol yeah sorry I mean…the GOOD shit21/09/2008 at 4:26 am #11007
lol, what my brother is gonna by a surfcasting rod now [hes 12 years old] so I’ll go down to Tairoa Head with him sea how it is what we catch; if anything at all
and if its worth while I’ll deffinitly by a surf rod and if not i might buy one anyway, for the holidays24/09/2008 at 6:21 am #11023
a guy i know has a couple of friends who go fishing at the sand bar near port chalmers, he thinks the blue cod i caught off the wharf might be a fluke,
and also there are kawhai around Dunedin and in reasonable numbers aswell.25/09/2008 at 5:38 am #11029
A question for anyone visiting the forum, what would be the best way to catch kawhai in Dunedin??? I was only thinking of using fresh or frozen mullet [preferrably fresh] and cast ‘er out, not many people spin fish in Dunedin off the rocks for salmon i wouldn’t know about spinning for kawhai
Edit; apparently mako, thresher, blue, and porbeagle sharks can all be caught just off the coast out by Taiaroa head so they could probably be caught by surfcasting as well
