How big do the Gurnard get in the Marlborough Sounds? I fish the Manukau harbour a bit, it's well known for Gurnard but the biggest they get is usually 1.3 to 1.4kg

I caught one in the Sounds last summer that was 49.5cm long, the biggest I've caught. Not sure of the weight.

I saw one that was measured at the Havelock boat ramp 58cm long. The Fisheries guy said it was one of the biggest he has ever seen. Early Nov if my memory serves me correctly.
