Double that guys best catch and its approximately the amount a couple of dedicated guys I know caught all season in the Wairau last year. These guys get up at 4:30am, 7 days a week to make sure they get their spot…..
I do not know why we get comparatively small runs in the Wairau, it has a enormous area of wetlands so should provide good spawning grounds. Maybe most of them make a beeline for the Lagoons and its maze of waterways avoiding all of the nets.
Might have to go traveling next weekend
