I got lots of rig last season around ashburton, on cooked prawns and all in the middle of the day (had to find some way to fill in a couple of hours over lunchtimes ). largest was only 6kg. Now that I’ve moved to marlborough I’m looking forward to chasing them up here. Nice to hear that you guys had some success using the humble cooked prawns I first mentioned in the bait thread. Have also found that a single large fresh crab leg can work great too. Would be keen to catch up with you Malburians for a spot of rig chasing come summer.
by the by what are sole worth points wise? caught a nice one by queen charlotte yacht club in picton harbour on saturday avo.
