kahawai at Rakaia Mouth - update

For ChCh locals, the Rakaia mouth is open closer to the South side huts. But the Kahawai are concentrating on the North side of the gut. Massive shoals are hanging round, they look like a black slick.
From the North side its a 10min bike ride or good 5km walk.  The track is pretty lose and soft for anything bigger than a Suzuki 4x4 truck and not a lot of turning space if you tried to venture down on anything bigger.

Fish were in close on Sat night. Easy casting for a fly rod and the biggest issue with chucking a ticer over them was trying to avoid foul hooking on the retrieve.



Kids who learn to Hunt and Fish,
Don't learn to Steal and Deal.
