In south canterbury the numbers of red cod ky and elephants have declinded far more than you would understand i remember catching red cod at st andrews beach when i was 11 4-5 at a time and they were huuuuge
Massive schools of ky and elephant fish were amazing.
now we really do struggle to catch a feed here and its only been 20years
Imagine another 20
it wont be worth spending 300buks on a surfcasting setup.
And our kids wont pass on what we have to them
Very very sad
