[quote="Miliwolf":2aa7t8zi]Yeah, have had the pleasure of enjoying freak waves a few times out on the Yak. Just the other day I was watching a bar trying to pick the channel so I can reenter… was looking okay, glance behind me back to sea to see a wave at least twice the height of the previous biggest breaking mere meters behind me. Just…[Read more]
Went out to a local beach with a mate friday evening 7-10.30 . Spent three hours with no action and had just made the call to head for home, when my mate noticed action on one of the rods, let him have it and after a battle of tug o war, had the fish close enough to the beach for me to wade in and tail a very nice Rig, weight 25lb. Crab was the bait
[quote="Duckman":2p5wsbp5]the 2 trays of prawns i got were $4.03 and $4.11 both have around 20- 30, haven’t counted them yet[/quote:2p5wsbp5]
Yip just use the ones with there heads still attached in there shell and they stay on they hook no worries. The way to rig them i find is start the point of the hook going downwards into the leg area and…[Read more]
[quote="smokin’ joe":3580zw1p][quote="HookLineSinker":3580zw1p]popped down the coast yesterday evening to target rig, caught a couple and headed home again, first for the season using prawns for bait.[/quote:3580zw1p]
any special tricks to stop prawns being stripped off?
usually use a firmer bait, but the prawn does seem to get the hits, but needs…[Read more]
[quote="elmo22":10awl4n1]hi miliwolf do you use another name on another fishing web site as i see the two photos of monkey bay and your finger on the other site[/quote:10awl4n1]
Yip sure does
Cooked or raw prawns work just fine, take off there heads thread like a softbait so the hook point comes out in the tail end and elastic it, throw it out and wait i mean wait longer than you think usually iv been about ready to pull it in when the bait has been hit, and dont throw it out to far just into good water works the best
Hi milli the stone wharf you talk of im guessing you mean what is known by many as the groin, and is a lovely camping spot and on a good tide is somewhere where many a good snapper can be caught too (i took a 15lber there several yaers ago ,the last time i actually fished for snapper to be ohnest).

Went down to beach last night fishing over low tide, very slow fishing only one small rig to be caught, on pilchard of all baits too (and was fishing two rods with prawns at the same time but must have wanted a change in diet, this is the fourth i have caught on pilchards.)
Hi all, took a new year for me to finally get some fishing done. Headed down the coast on Monday to a well known big shark beach, but was not to be the result one small red cod and a small schoolie, the fishing was dead as many others who were down that way found also; and from reading reports on here the fishing wasnt that flash in canterbury…[Read more]
[quote="fishforpot":1pvaqvcf]Did I read on the homepage that Kaik’s was the 9th and the other 2 comps canceled ?
Yes , I did indeed ………so no comps this year for me ….dont fish rigged comps[/quote:1pvaqvcf]
Those details are correct
[quote="Miliwolf":2zpoipsw]Finally made it down the coast to Salty for a Rig fish, two rods out one with raw, the other with cooked prawn. Sea was calm and the wind was only a cold draft. No fish, not even a nibble. No paddle crabs caught in the pot either. Fished from 7:30-9:30pm Would try again in a week or two Having to much fun chasing…[Read more]
Bite times play a much bigger role than is realised and also high can be good iv personally had just as much success with catch rates over low. But this said i catch more rig over low tide than high but all the big schoolies iv ever caught have been over a incoming tide in the evening.
With bait and sinker on the line the so called 200 metres is a bit far fetched. To get an idea of how far your casts are going cast out a good cast then mark it with a pen and then walk it down the beach and see just how far your really cating you maybe surprised just how far your going as distances from land out to sea can be disceiving.
