My mate and his family have gone back to Wanganui now but he took back 2 big chilly bins of fillets.We went out to browns beach and got 14 ellies over the holidays.I have been concentrating on salmon lately.Went up to Hanmer Springs 2 weeks ago and fished morning from 6.00am – bout 9.30am then again at night from bout 7.30 – 10.00 in the Waiau river, got 1 hook up but lost it as it went straight for the foul ground.my first time salmon fishing so didnt expect the bastards to take so much line so quick.will know better next time.am going to have a go in lake hawea in 2 wks then off to Wanganui for the annual Eides surfcasting competition that goes for 2 days,have fished in that for 14 years so its hard to break tradition.

man the fishing sounds good in timaru with all sorts of fish to catch on the wharf. i went fishing off the rocks there years ago and it was awesome fishing..
great to see people catching salmon on the wharf heres a great tip on catching one .. put a pilchard on a float and see if theres a salmon around it will monster it. well wish i bloody lived in timaru the fishing sounds so good not like crappy chch its crap fishing26/01/2008 at 11:33 am #10069
I just got back from Timaru. I went up about lunch time and fished the wharf for some more mullet for bait. Then went down to Pareora beach. I fished right beside the big pipe from the freezing works. Its a constant supply of burley with loads of blood and bits and peices coming out throughout the day, I wouldn’t be surprised if it attracted some of the bigger species of sharks in closer like makos. There were loads of school sharks around, and also quite a few dogfish earlier on. All I ended up catching was about 10 medium sized school sharks, some dogfish and a carpet shark. I hooked into something big on my 12kg rod, but by the time I went to strike, it was gone. I think it was possibly a seven giller or big school shark. I think I might go up again when its a bit calmer and try for more sharks.29/01/2008 at 5:04 am #10095
wish that noreast would go away been to rough for the last couple of days to even get a line in the water .

This one about 1.5 mtrs wide dont know how much it weighed but i needed a beer after i got it in !29/01/2008 at 5:15 am #10096
that sounds like a good ray aaron got one like that at kaikoura a few weeks ago so id say its bigger than average mayb althoughthis was off the wharf so nowhere to really land it but we pretty much had it on the surface after about 5min/10min until we were bout to cut it off when it dove deep got tail wrapped and snapped us off29/01/2008 at 5:25 am #10097
this one rolled onto its back in the surf otherwise i doubt i would have beached it .
