    Muriwai bch area

    Righty ho. I am off to the wild west coast of Muriwai to work for a few weeks. As there is no hunting in the area, I guess I will try and fit some rock/beach fishing in.
    Having never ventured off the Coromandel for fishing, can anyone give me a pointer or two please...pretty please. Do I take the surfcasting gear or just general rock hopping stuff? Etc etc etc.
    Heading up Sat 23rd

    Take both. There is the rock outcrop between maori bay and muriwai, where you can still alright on.
    There is a regular strong current that runs up the beach that can be a pain in the arse. Watch the tide if you drive right to the top as there is an area that washes right up against the dunes.
    Other than that its really just like reading any beach.

    Have you arrived up here yet Pengy? We have turned on a stunning blue dome day for you.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Your obviously no west coast boy Gibo.
    What's a little undertow, rip or rogue wave between friends
    Muriwai even provides free burley when the locals pretend there are no sharks there (seals guys, seals).

    Lots of poser surfies up here.
    Boards stay on the beach or they sit on their boards out behind the breakers.
    Old head hammer hand I used to work with started surfing in the 60's.
    He had a very simple rules between posers and surfers - If you puled the board off the car and went into the waves you were a surfie.
    If you stopped on the beach/waxed your board after getting there/scratched your arse/chatted up the girls, you were a poser

    Not there yet Rushy, just loading up my poor little van.
    I have seen and heard all the stuff about the conditions over the dark side, so will be taking care for sure.
    No, I dont want and never have wanted to catch a pointer, either landbased or any other way. Those things can stay right where they belong (and dominate) thankyou.

    RULE 4: IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET BEYOND ALL DOUBT


    To be a Human is to be an Alien, ask the animals, We invade this world and we are killing it, we are destroying the earth and nobody gives a fuck except for the animals
