    Yeah seems to be heaps of yellowbellies around this year especially at the Rangitata whereas last year it was mostly freshwater black flounders.

    how are you rigging the shrimp troutfisher?and raw or cooked?have tried baitfishing for flounder with limited success..have only ever had one (sole)at conway flat on cooked prawn while retrieving(fluke).

    just the small cooked ones in the blue bag, pams ones I think.
    normally just have a sinker at the bottom of the rig then two droppers above with size 6 hooks and another sinker above a swivel on the leader.
    if you retrieve slowly quite often the flounders will grab the bait as they are attracted as it kicks up sand etc.
