Rig and elephant fish (Tope to?), will a pulley rig and the rig like Zac drew up just the other day be fine for both species?

reading in a fishing mag from a year or so ago that had an artice about surfcasting the top half of the south island from kaikoura to karamea it says that those banded wrasse things you catch around the rocks and stuff are appaently good eating if you fillet the fish and rub salt into them and08/01/2008 at 8:28 pm #9841
Branded wrasse are average eating. They have a lot of meat once you have gotten through the bones. They are not the tastiest fish in the sea. Similar to Moki or the darker meat from KY.08/01/2008 at 8:30 pm #9842
moki are meant to be good i thought… the darker meat on the kaiwhai near the skin tastes like absolute crap!!!!!! i dont really like kaiwhai at all i ussally release them or if soeone wants it to eat they can have it. or bait08/01/2008 at 8:34 pm #9844
ive eaten quite allot of moki this week n as a eating fish id say they were good and ive tried alot of fish from around the world08/01/2008 at 8:40 pm #9845
Moki are average in my opinion. If I had the option to eat a moki or a KY I would choice the KY. I only keep Moki (and KY for that matter) to feed to my father.
I look forward to eat blue cod, butterfish ect but would be disappointed to eat KY or Moki.08/01/2008 at 8:43 pm #9847

[quote:28nwc3c1]where do u catch blue cod from the shore
You can get them from the shore at some places around Stewart Island, and off the wharf at Bluff. I was told by one guy that people catch Blue cod off the beaches around Timaru and further south at certain times of the year.08/01/2008 at 10:03 pm #9855
I have caught legal blue cod from beaches in and around the outer Marlborough sounds.08/01/2008 at 10:07 pm #9856
