Kaikoura would have much more appeal for CHCH fishers if they adopted a similar format to either amberly or nape nape …..
i.e. the fish are weighed or measured in front of you , and you can KEEP them …
Driving all the way to Kaikoura and returning with no fish , is not something that appeals to me …..
Especially when I was catching KY , 2 gurnard and a blue cod besides the unwanted skate/conger etc
