Re: land based game fishing canterbury


I’ve only ever hooked a ray once – was in the Sounds and I thought I’d caught the InterIslander. Personally, I share ‘rockys’ opinion on targeting rays – they’re not sport because you can just sit on hing smelly with a hook in it, get (admittedly a big) thrill as your reel screams – then lose a lot of line and tackle and leave a fish to swim around with it.

That’s why if you’re targeting them you use heavy gear so you can land and release them…
