A mini-glut of whitebait catches around Haast has left some whitebaiters with more fish than freezer space.

Many freezers are already full, with three weeks to go to the end of the West Coast season.

Curly Tree Whitebait Co owner Tony Kerr said this year was shaping up to be better than previous seasons, and whitebaiters in South Westland were making the most of the good run.
