    I always found that if the edges of your timber or pvc is painted they scare very easy.cheers

    Stopped for a look off the bridge by the floodgates in the Avon about 20mins ago ……in 2 mins Id have seen maybe 1/2 a pound spread between 3 shoals ….

    Starting to think seriously about heading down the mac for a dabble …..

    If the health dept warning are correct , the giardia eggs in the silt could see the Avon/Heathcote out for years …

    The dirtier the better. I baited the Taieri 2 days after opening day and got just over .5 kg and since the rivers dropped I been getting fark all. Drag netters scooping the lot. They should be banned. Should be one person per net.

    2-3 mins standing beside the flood gates in the Avon and I saw about 3 lb of bait between the 5-6 shoals cruising up against the outgoing tide …..

    Anyone heard if the Mac is seeing much action ? ……

    I think I might have to dust off the whitebait gear soon and give it a try. Went for a few hour kayak in my local river today and all but a couple of the stands were empty. Although have seen local whitebait for sale, so they must be running at times.
