Just updating this topic. On the few times i have been fishing in timaru oer the last couple of months i have either caught, seen, or heard of these fish being caught there.
Yellow Eyed Mullet
Short Tailed Sting Ray
Very Rare but people have also caught blue cod there
Also heard or Elephant Fish, School Shark, Seven Gillers around the area so it should be possible to get them off the wharf
And i also heard a story about a flounder net being ripped apart by a big shark
