    Don't go out near Whirinaki opposite the PANPAC mill. The outfall there is quite close to the beach, and I'm getting kinda pissed with having to cut errant longlines off the outfall. It's bloody hard for work for not much pay...

    thanks for that info mauser 308, was thinking about the beach at bay view so I can park in the bus and just carry gear down to beach. I normally go to opotiki but napier is a bit closer cheers jefftrevor

    Try Le Quesne Road at Bayview.

    Marine Parade opposite the Meanee intersection

    Te Awanga opposite the wineries

    And Ocean Beach north of the surf club.

    Expect quite a few crabs and dogfish but occasionally you'll get some good snapper and gurnard.


    Let us know how you get on

    Good luck

    Cheers
    Pete

    ah the Whirinaki, Hastings and Napier outfalls, how I luved doing those smelly, no viz, congo eel infested dives, then spending the last days doing comms so the nitrogen levels stay low for the drive back over the hill back home.

    How's it going. The lower part of the Coromandel would not be to far to come for a fish. My dingy lives on the beach so it only takes a few minutes to set a longline here. You can fill in a few fishing hours on the rock below my house which is fishing well when the Westerlys are not too strong. We live just a few minutes north of Thames.

    I set the net out in the bay here and catch plenty of Flounder, a few kahawai and a feed or two of snapper most sets so we could do that too.

    You would be most welcome Jeff. I plan on doing a lot of fishing now the freezer is full of venison. That's if these Nor Westers knock it off

    The neighbour from up the back had his net set last night about 75m out in front of the house. We sat back with the binocs and watched him wrestle with a couple of sizable stingrays while we had a coffee. Its always good to watch someone else sorting out a problem. Oh well two less for me to catch. He boated some other fish but I couldn't see what they were.
