If the red cod appears healthy it would be safe to eat, even with worms/lice they are safe to eat. Good rig fishing on the beaches around Seddon. Blind River, Seaview and behind the Saltworks are all productive. Just need to avoid any wind from the west, and especially norwest. Weeds in the water can make Saltwork beach difficult to fish for several days after a good southerly storm. From now on the Rig fishing should only get better until the start of winter.
