Looking at targeting some flounder at the Opihi lagoon and will be using corn for bait, Anyone know if corn is legal for Trout? as there’s a reasonable chance I could catch a searun trout while fishing for Flounder and wondering if it would need to be released?
http://www.fishandgame.org.nz has info on fishing regulations Corn would be classed as bait, which I would suggest is legal in all waters except those marked as fly or spin only waters. I’m sure someone will correct me if this is wrong.
