Re: Red cod around christchurch


The key is fishing at dusk or after dark, Not sure if its the same in Christchurch but down here all you catch during the day is dogfish and then the cod start biting after dark although I haven’t caught many in the last couple years. Just about any bait works but mullet or fish bait is the best followed by squid. Standard surfcasting gear is fine 12ft+ rod 3-4oz sinkers and 20lb line.. Try any the beaches north and south of Christchurch.
