Went down to timaru today. It looks like the fishing is picking up there. First thing I caught was a reasonable sized carpet shark (pics below). Didn’t catch much after that, but I saw a few mullet following my bait up, so I decided to try catch a few. Ended up only getting two good sized ones. Just as I was packing up, I hooked up to a big Red Cod, so I will probably be going back next weekend to try catch some more.
