    Waimac fishes best when in flood ….bait can only go up the sides of the river , too much current in the middle

    Thats at the mouth , cant speak for the rest of the river , but logically it would be the same

    yeah should be clean by now, except… its meant to rain tomorow damn it! lol that does sound right fishforport, especially when running against the current. thats one thing ive noticed, baitings allways good when the rivers current has a good push to it.

    lol i seen that video a few days ago, makes me wanna get out asap.. (and get shoals that big) but doubt it haha

    Know where that is…..remember seeing quite a few large shoals pass under the bridge one year….whether id be game enough to eat bait from there though is a different story…..:D

    went out this weekend for nothing once again i think ill give it a few weeks before i hit the kaiapoi again . this season so far is going down in history the worst start ever to a season
    spent all weekend on my we set up and it was the worst ever weekend iv had didnt even get a feed over the weekend but did get a nice size flounder that went down a treat
    i think the water is to cold and the mak was very milky all weekend

    I will be speaking for quite a few who cruise this site when I say “we are waiting eagerly for any news”

    No doubt many of us are biding our time and rearing to rip into the bait …I for 1 have no quarms about sharing info , there will be plenty to go around ….possibly heading out this afternoon for my first try this season , actually , for 2 seasons lol

    I havent heard anything , but will endeavor to keep everyone posted if I see or hear anything , and hope all those interested will do the same …..

    Just for the newbies to the sport , past years the bait has always seemed to run in the 3rd week of October , that’s Oct 15-21
