Just went with my friend to his yacht in lyttleton marina, thought I’d catch some bait fish for a red cod mission to Akaroa next weekend. Got 3 herrings, 1 smallish Kaiwhai (not big but not tiny), a spottie and 4 little dogfish. Put the dogfish back but kept the rest. Not bad for relaxing inside a boat, I wasn’t sure if there would be much there but you gotta try eh.
Atleast it’s a start, might go back tomorrow and get some more to have enough in stock.
