    Time to dust off the surfcaster - No where shall I go

    the surfcaster has been sitting idle for a couple of years now so I think it is time to blow off the dust, wipe away the cobwebs and get out for a fish. My son is coming up from blenheim for my turn at spending Xmas with him so want to take him to the beach for a bit of a surfcast. Planning on wednesday or thursday (been booked to milk cows on the weekend) now I am tossing up between waihi or going west to kawhia (never been there) or ruapuke, plus it is an excuse to take the bighorn for a run. How well have these areas been fishing lately Chris/anyone? I am dying to have a scrap with a fish or two plus want to get my boy onto a fish with the surfcaster.

    i reckon take him to waihi beach. the east coast is abit more surfcast friendly. the west coast if rough will be enough to put him off for life. be there late arternoon and into the evening, bound to catch a snapp. fishing during the day is ok but u will prob catch kawhai which is bloody great fresh and if bled first. good luck.
