    Whitebaiting best places to go

    White bait season is looming up on us again and I would not mind getting a new scoop net and going out to try for a feed of whitebait. I have not gone whitebaiting since I left Te Puke so I am out of touch on where to go. Other than traveling down to the Kaituna cut where everyone else flocks into or thornton where abouts are some decent areas I can go to not sure if Kawhia or Raglan produces any so if anyone in the know can give some ideas where I can go and try at the start of the season in august I would appreciate the help even if it is by PM.

    That is the same travel time it takes to get to waihi and going by google maps looks like some good fishing to be had as well.

    Only two main knots I use and that is longline knot and uni knot if I am not using a breakout sinker if using a B.O.S then i use a dropper loop (which is the rig I used at waihi last weekend) and I do have to refresh the mono on the reel with some new 10kg line at some stage

    Very true VC but I would rather be able to drive somewhere close not hop in a plane for a day trip

    Watch that dropper loop, it has 40% knot strength, i dont touch it. I prefer a figure 8 for loops
