If your just looking for somethin to wrestle with I reckon pound for pound a big greyboy fights the hardest out of the 3. I mean just from my experiences the sevengills would pick up the bait and make a good run but then it was fairly easy to recover all that line before they took off again then it would more or less turn into a dead weight with a few good tugs,until they hit the breakers that is then they would take off again.After doin that 2 or 3 times they just seemed to tire out and come up to the surface and then well,the waves17/07/2007 at 8:02 pm #8252

I been told that they enter the rivers to spawn… although I have my doubts. Could be a rich source of food for them and relatively few predators?23/07/2007 at 11:10 pm #8259
I fished near the Rangitata mouth on the way back from a job in Fairlie today. Lots of spiny dogfish around but nothing else.26/07/2007 at 7:48 am #8260
sea down at ashburton was looking fairly flat yesterday, didn’t have time for a fish.
Also the ashburton river is flowing to sea at the moment so could be worth a crack.26/07/2007 at 1:17 pm #8261
I went down to wakanui last Sunday but the sea was way to rough. If the sea stays calm27/07/2007 at 10:24 pm #826202/08/2007 at 6:47 pm #8281MartyParticipant

Red Cod and Spiny Dogfish are about all thats around at this time of the year in the Christchurch area. It is possible to get Skate and other species but your best to wait untill summer02/08/2007 at 7:35 pm #8284
