So, just wondering, since they’re back at the Pier… Has anyone been to Kaiapoi lately?
Thanks25/10/2009 at 7:27 pm #13758
Went to saturday to kaiapoi, seemed a little slow only 3 mullet caught, although probbly didnt have the best bait, prawns and squid left over from fishing at amberly beach.25/10/2009 at 7:51 pm #13759AnonymousInactive
Yeah, I’ve used squids on my first time at Kaiapoi didn’t catch anything during those 2 – 3 hours. Changed to some bonito and got heaps of them…

Was out there last Saturday, once the tide came up and the whitebaiters buggered off i fished around the bmx track and raven quay, was alright got heaps of the little buggers biting but being the elusive buggers they can be at times only managed 3. I use bread for bait.30/10/2009 at 9:43 pm #13840
yea abou now is the best time for mullet inthe kaiapoi though till early april id say. best bait would be sea worms but never can be f$#%@! going to get em. so usually use pillie or bonito. i will also use a 3/0 hook on my trace with a larger bait to catch kahawai at times while ullet fishing. was going to go today actually but going to pier tonight31/10/2009 at 7:38 am #13842
Popped down opposite the BMX track for an hour or two this avo before high tide. 4 mullet caught on Sabiki’s with bonito for bait. First fish was a decent size, the rest kept getting smaller so I stopped once I’d got enough for the cat.11/12/2009 at 9:34 pm #14262mulletmanParticipant

go to the end of kibble white street in south brighton theres mullet for africa and the odd small kahawai. but use a 2/0 hook because the mullet there are huge. bonito, worms or sand worms work best12/12/2009 at 8:08 pm #14277fishforpotParticipant
Might pay to carry some poppers if heading to kibble white street ….

Mullet in front of the yacht clubrooms at Stewarts Gully on high tide too.
Sprinkle breadcrumbs into the water and drop a lightly baited sabiki into the “vapour trail” of crumbs.
Don’t feed them up too much though, they only have small bellies eh.
For even more fun, put a small float on top of the sabiki rig and just a split shot on the bottom to hold it straight for some absolutely mind-bending fun, see and feel the bites!
The float will aid your strike and improve the catch rate.
