I’m new to Fishingmag. I’m interested to know where are some good surfcasting areas with access not an issue with quadbikes. Alot types of bait to use.
Hope someone can help.

Is there a reason that you need to use a quad bike?
We can drive to all fishing places and only would use a bike once in fifty outings or so.
If you dont want to eat it put it back.25/02/2009 at 9:45 pm #12577

Nearly all beaches are accessible to quad bikes. Anywhere from Timaru and further north to Birdlings Flat is good, also further north past Christchurch like Amberly or Nape Nape.27/02/2009 at 2:06 am #12591rdeejayParticipant
Anywhere from the top end of amberley beach right down to ashworths beach are all good, and then you also have from birdlings flat area right down the whole of the kaitorete spit.27/02/2009 at 8:30 am #12594
Hey thanks very much for the info. Can anyone recommend successful bait for surfcasting please?27/02/2009 at 9:38 am #12597MiliwolfParticipant
In my opinion there is two main type of baits. There is the fish baits (Pilchard, Mullet, Kahawai, Bonito ect) and they work well on most Sharks, Red Cod and Kahawai.
There there is the Crustacean (Shrimp, Prawn, Crab and Crayfish) and Shellfish which work well on Rig and Moki but would rarely catch other fish (which can be a good thing if Dogfish and Red Cod are in plague proportions).
I consider Squid somewhere in the middle between the two groups. In reality its probably has more in common to the fish baits then the Crustacean.
For starters a good range which is easily available would be Pilchards, Squid and Raw Prawn.03/03/2009 at 9:42 am #12663oldtroutParticipant
I read somewhere that the pier in New Brighton is ok for fishing, but I thought the loonies had got their way and had it closed.
Can anyone update me please?03/03/2009 at 7:59 pm #12667
Pier at Brighton is still open for fishing. Just follow the rules, no overhead casting etc03/03/2009 at 11:13 pm #12669
