Salmon Fishing

Richard went out on the harbour in his boat recently and caught three Salmon and four decent sized Kahawai. The largest of the salmon was over 25 pounds, so Richard was very pleased. From all reports, now would be the best time to start salmon fishing if you haven’t already, as they are certainly out and about in the harbour.

We have the new Ridgeline Deluge Anorak on special at $159, normally $329. These jackets are waterproof, rated to 10,000mm, breathable and seam-sealed.
It seems for every salmon caught in the harbour, there are five kahawai, this frustrates salmon fishermen, and many people don’t realise just how good eating kahawai are. The key is to bleed them as soon as possible so the meat doesn’t spoil, then you can rub brown sugar into the flesh and hot smoke them like a trout.
For those of us that don’t have a boat, there are plenty of salmon also being caught straight off the wharf, this one was caught last Sunday, cheers for the photo, Don! There were ten salmon caught last Saturday too, which is apparently a record for the wharf.
The now have a range of the popular Savage soft baits in stock. We predict these being very effective, especially the luminescent ones when used at the canals near Twizel.
Look for us at the Southern Fields Days at Waimumu, 10th, 11th and 12th of February. This year is set to be the biggest yet, and with 38,000 people turning out to the last two-day sale, this year is expected to be a big one. We will be set up at site 448.
