    There seems to be heaps of these around this season. I’ve caught 5 so far, all in Timaru. First ones I caught were just on a standard ledger rig with 4/0 or 5/0 hooks and mullet for bait, the last two I got yesterday were caught on a 7/0 long shank hook with a chunk of Dogfish for bait.

    Does anyone know how big they grow? Every one i’ve caught or seen caught has been around the same size.

    Do they put up much of a fight?

    They put up no fight at all and just glide in as a dead weight with their flat bodies, iv caught plenty of the little buggers down at seaview over the years and find them just a nuicance although i do let everyone go alive.

    Sometimes they can put up quite a good fight, then other times they just sit there while you reel them in.
