[quote="troutfishernz":e3js95ap]Yeah the mouth is fully open, looked real good today but just no Fish around.
Not sure if your aware of this site but its very handy to check if the mouth is open.

[quote="troutfishernz":13cg830x]Got 2 flounders at the Opihi today. not much else around didn’t see any Trout or Salmon or Kahawai.[/quote:13cg830x]
with the rain and the Opuha release, has the mouth opened properly ?
i am sure there are dive/fish hunt charters running out of Milford Sound…………… if not there could be spots to flick a line in.
Moeraki is not a bad day out, but has been raped since Marlborough Sounds had the slot rule introduced on blue cod.
[quote="troutfishernz":esaghvlk]Where did you fish? we fished by the farm but had no luck so went down by the stilling pond by the spill gates and was getting hits almost every cast. Seems like Ohau B or C will be the best option now Tekapo is being drained and Ohau A is fished out.[/quote:esaghvlk]

[quote="troutfishernz":3vg3fo3m]Tekapo. Was really good there for a while but now they have stopped the flow as they are going to drain it soon.[/quote:3vg3fo3m]
had a crack there on Saturday. didn’t se any action on our or anyone elses gear. was a late sart, so didn’t get further west to Twizel canal system.
[quote="troutfishernz":3ollgnav]Only 5 years ago I was catching Trout on the lower Pareora river by the main road bridge but now there’s only a semi stagnant trickle even having reasonably wet summers over the last couple of years hasn’t helped at all. I guess that’s what happens when you try and set up Dairy farms in an area only suited to…[Read more]
funny thing about large areas around Selwyn, the forestry was sustainable, shetlered the nor’west (less erosion ) and still created jobs/wealth. trees are gone, so has the water, and building a house is constantly getting more expensive as the millable timber is further from the mill.
loose loose situation unless you are a greedy dairy…[Read more]
any salmon caught out there this morning ? seen a few guys on both sides of mouth.
we tried opihi mouth from a boat this morning. very little action at mouth but dropped longline offshore between Connollys and Beach rd.
small greyboys, spikeys as well a couple decent treshers. one at 4-5ft and another that halfed our catch at 6-8ft. luckily he…[Read more]
[quote="Duckman":3qg0uo9x]yeah but there’s a daily limit on ele’s and rig, they need to be reported if they are taking more than the daily limits[/quote:3qg0uo9x]
exactly. most cellphones have cameras on them. a 20 second video with the offending catch and vehicle must carry some weight.
not uncommon to hear people down here skiting about 15 +…[Read more]
[quote="Polwarth":199xu5z1] well said fishforpot & ginga, I have only ever used 5 hooks per set with my kite, because I have only ever fish for my table not the whole district. I have always felt, like others here, that fish keep best in the sea. The trouble as I see it, not just with fishing, but anything you apply a rule or law too, is that only…[Read more]
[quote="baitman":1lpfnr0o]Something a bit different I found while looking for info on the lake thought I’d share.

might be related to the mythical ‘Lake Benmore Monster’ that was often spoken of when i grew up on the West Shore.
[quote="rocky":2c1dbry3]Meant to be limit bags of Blue Cod off the rocks in the Catlins according to local rumour but I have yet to catch a single blue cod. If you’re ever down this way and I’m able to get away then I’m more than happy to go fishing with you. have you done much rock fishing before? It’s pretty much all I’ve done for years. I found…[Read more]
