if your always getting snags at macintoshes, then your fishing it wrong or your lures are too heavy so go lighter. compared to the Rakaia and all other rivers you do not need to fish the bottom at mackintoshes, the fish are seldom on the bottom. once you get into the river properly then start fishing the bottom. ive witnessed salmon caught damn near on the surface at macintoshes rocks and at the kaiapoi mouth before

the kaiapoi mouth is different again, 14 grams up there is the heaviest I go
