We spent the weekend at a holiday house in Kaikoura near the New World supermarket, so I walked down the back and went for a fish on Friday night. I brought back a 50cm flatfish – either a large sole or maybe a turbot or brill??
I also lost what would’ve been 2 large rig – one either got off the hook or let go of the crab, the other bent the hook (must stop using mutsu hooks from the warehouse except for smaller fish). Lots of dogfish around plus the occasional red cod but the cod weren’t quite fat enough for my liking.
