umm the flat tin ones i paint the top, edge to edge so yeah i guess, but I also use pvc piping and just paint the whole thing man lol04/09/2012 at 8:29 am #21530
I always found that if the edges of your timber or pvc is painted they scare very easy.cheers08/09/2012 at 9:05 pm #21537
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 …..09/09/2012 at 3:26 am #21539burkefishParticipant

Hell no , the more water coming down the better ….I fish at the mouth , so if its blowing 3000 cumecs id drop back along the beach09/09/2012 at 5:41 am #21541
saw a couple of people bating in the Avon today actually. They’ve got some balls, I wouldn’t touch anything in that river atm lol09/09/2012 at 6:15 am #21542
If the health dept warning are correct , the giardia eggs in the silt could see the Avon/Heathcote out for years …10/09/2012 at 9:51 am #21546
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.15/09/2012 at 7:40 am #21552
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 ? ……15/09/2012 at 9:12 am #21553shark slayerParticipant
Got a feed yesterday and again today, hopefully some bigger runs start turning up, otherwise i will concentrate on catching rig and leave the whitebaiting until october.16/09/2012 at 6:17 am #21557shark slayerParticipant17/09/2012 at 10:14 am #21564

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.
