i’m with ya on the livebaits rocky, very exciting way to fish. Yeah, my comments are really just cos there’s no really reliable livebait available to you down there. Down the Catlins you could probably use blue cod, i’ve caught kingies on those, but they are not exactly strong swimming fish like a kahawai. I guess i’m just syaing that if i was Canterbury based i’d probably look at that technique off the deep beaches as a more likely ways to get into something interesting. I think if you were to sail a deadbait out you could also attach a berley bomb to your rig.
