two seen from kaiapoi mid reaches this afternoon, one jumping and one landed by a mullet fisherman, (5-6lb) didnt speak much english but the kid with him did so i said hes not allowed to keep it so the kid threw it back (off the swing bridge) the guy who caught it was not happy the fish then floated for about 10m upside down so i got my rod to try hook it and then hold it in water for it to regain itself but then it took off so guessing it was just stunned, dont think the guy is too happy with me but hey they have laws for a reason, i also hooked something large assuming it was a salmon, took alot of line before snapping my mullet hook lol
