Conway Flat – Elephantfish
Congratulations to Donald Searles for catching and sending us this picture of a limit bag of elephantfish he caught while surfcasting at Conway Flat, near the mouth of the Conway River, about 50km south of Kaikoura, on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Turn off SH1 at the Conway River, which follows the north bank down to the sea about 6 km. There is a small settlement at Claveley on the coast north of the Conway River mouth. It is best for surfcasting when the sea is clear and the wind is from the north-west.
Donald caught his elephant fish on Mister Twister sand/surf crabs and squid bait while fishing an out-going tide. Some anglers have the nack for catching elephant fish and Don is clearly one who knows how it is done.
