yh ill jump out next weekend might sneak friday of aswell hopefully theres something about by then we just need the mak clean for a good periode and some bait to show up29/08/2011 at 6:16 pm #18543fishforpotParticipant
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 same31/08/2011 at 7:23 am #18550
Whitebaiting….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EOGtG0Iy … detailpage31/08/2011 at 11:47 pm #18551
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 haha02/09/2011 at 5:14 am #18552
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…..02/09/2011 at 8:14 pm #18553oldgreyboyParticipant

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
