Does anybody know where I could go to get some flounder in Christchurch? I just want to spear them and I'm not sure where to look for them as I haven't been out for flounder in years. Cheers guys

Haven't done it in years however some places used to be Ellesmere, Chch estuary, Brrokland lagoon, Saltwater Creek/Ashley lagoon. Doubt they're safe to eat from now though

We used to get them as kids on the mud flats near South Brighton Estuary area just near Bromley.  Roll Eyes

Really, they can live in freshwater.. I always thought they were an estuary/ sea kind of fish. Learn something every day..

The Asburton River near town has had no swimming signs up for a couple or five years now. I dont think its that ''fresh'' anymore.

yip a few different varieties of flounder around...the ashburton river is a sorry shadow of what it once was...at one time they trapped and killed trout to protect it as a premier salmon river.... it still has some good trout water but lack of flow ,like so many rivers along that coast, is slowly killing it. beautiful headwaters.
