    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…

    thanks

    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.

    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 tonight

    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.

    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 best :grin:

    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.
