    I wouldn't be to fused about pipi beds most of the snapper I get are full of paddle crab legs,the odd fish with a pipi in it.
    Pillies are quite soft you'll need to tie on with a few wraps of cotton,personally I use Bonito seem to hold together better still a few wraps of cotton too.

    I used to live half way, to the Santoft beach from Bulls, the Rangitikei mouth always has a few ky, about, more so when white bait are around, I've also caught a far few big trout, in behind scots ferry, by fishing the gravel fan, behind any island or corner, early morning.
    The Main Santoft beach, you need to find a hole or gutter in the surf, and fish the edges, I've had sum very good catches of snapper, ky, gurnard, the odd king fish and cod. over the years, often found a hole, by climbing the dunes just north of Scott's ferry.
    Rig are common, but you should fish with shell fish, I buy prawns,
    The whole stretch of coast is very shallow, and changeable, a good spot one day will be gone the next storm, waste of time from my experience, if its bright and sunny. But if that's the only time your got, bait in the water means there a chance.
    If you really want to up the catch rate, buy a long line or a kayak,
    Kayak, made a big difference, for me, being able to get out behind the surf, I recon that the fish come in to the shallows at night, but one you in 6 plus Meters, or so they fell safe enough. at least that's my experience, paddle out a till 7-8m and berly up,
    I caught my biggest Kahawai in the mouth of the Rangitikei, 15lbs according to the fruit scale in the shed,
    I've moved to Taranaki now, and it got more structure and thus more consistent fishing.
