There seems to be heaps of these around this season. I’ve caught 5 so far, all in Timaru. First ones I caught were just on a standard ledger rig with 4/0 or 5/0 hooks and mullet for bait, the last two I got yesterday were caught on a 7/0 long shank hook with a chunk of Dogfish for bait.

Does anyone know how big they grow? Every one i’ve caught or seen caught has been around the same size.
