    Sad news up here in Blenheim, the idiots in what was formerly the ministry of fishery have allowed recreational set neting to start again.

    You will catch them anywhere along the beach in 2-3feet of water ….if you wade into any guts or channels you’ll catch them …..as said , south shore is good ……..Peir is where I go , unless I’m fishing Spencers , then I catch them where I’m fishing ..
    Low tide is easier …..off the Peir Id go half tide and only 2/3rds of the way along…

    You read my mind fishforpot, I were dropping my catcher off the pier and first drop left it for about 2 min and pulled it up with 12,

    Pfft, commercial and Iwi have been allowed to set net all along and take their quota’s, recreational catch pales in comparison..

    Bag limits need reducing …. limit of 5 hooks on longlines/kites torpedos etc

    GPS data on all commercial fishing boats …. get them 5miles from the coastline minimum …..

    Sad news indeed milli

    It’s about time limits were sorted out. 20 rig or even kahawai is a ridiculous amount for anyone.
