Re: Moki Point


prior to the coastal netting ban, I used to target “moki and butterfish” using setnets around taylors mistake and port levy,

on a good day fish were prolific, as a consequence we sometimes had to land on the beach just to clear the net,

I am convinced species such as moki remain largely untapped by local landbased fisherman, apart from those who target them at birdlings flat during summer,

It would seem due to increase in fish numbers spearfishing is becoming very popular around these parts,

there are many good species of fish within reach of christchurch over summer..mullet, ky, greyboy, rig, elephantfish, moki, butterfish, bluecod,

trumpeter, monkfish, maorichiefs, kingfish, conger eels, trout and salmon to name a few,

thinking outside the box….food for thought :razz:
