Didnt managed to land any but i can say there is rig to be caught in marlborough off the beach too.
Popped down to the beach yesterday avo and hooked up on two good sized ones, the first one swirled to the surface had a tussel and through the hook Bugger!
The second one (may well be same fish) this time it had a big run then turned and tusselled with into the breakers only to have a big set of waves move through and mash ny lines into the rocks, result bustoff and watching a lovely rig swim back through the breakers with some jewellery attached even bigger BUGGER!!!
Crab and cooked prawn were the baits and i would put the fish at 4 to 6 kg specimens.
