Re: Kontiki in the Canterbury area


I think the majority of people use kites, mainly because they are cheaper I suppose. I’ve seen people using kites at both Rangitata and Rakaia, but not really sure how successful they are. I know the guy who runs the shop at Rangitata sends out a kite when the conditions are right, and I think i remember him saying he gets rig/schoolies. But I’d say most the East Coast beaches around Canterbury are about the same in terms of species caught.
