We went last week to Marsden Point. My first time there, was quite excited. Heard a lot of fish there just under the wharf which turned out to be 100% true. We caught over 2 dozen kahawais most of them released. Caught around 6 trevs which were not huge, just over legal. we were using half pillies with usual surf casting rigs.
Sorry no pics, it was raining most of the day.
 
Overall a nice day out away from work. Have to go back there again to catch bigger trevs!!
 
Is there anyone here who fish that point regularly?

I didn't think you were allowed to fish there any more?

Some big kingis around the wharf, but landing them is another matter.

the monkeys built a pontoon adjacent to the extended log terminal tho it doesn't venture as far into the channel as the old wharf...ive seen some big kingy,s under the pipes around the concrete pile,s as you say rusky.. a sucessfull attempt is pretty remote.. easy to get feed of KY for the smoker....tho i wouldn't rule out putting out a livie off the beach tho   signs along the beach @ low tide shown fish mooching the sand during high tide...

Was that off of the pontoon or casting into the channel furthur 'round to the right at low tide?

I've fished the pontoon several times, can fish really well for mackrel in the evenings, also pleanty of dorey there in summer, have burleyed a few decent trevs up by chunking pillies on the down current side, but couldn't land anything from a couple of hook up and they just went strait for the wharf piles.

I'll be having a go at the beach furthur down from the pontoon tomorow afternoon, and taking shellfish for bait too, do trevs like flasher rigs?

I was fishing off the beach to the right and was casting towards pillars. We did see kingis chasing bait.....very tempting! mate was telling me that March & April is a good season for catching bigger trevs off that point.

im not sure on size but limit is 150 per person ,personally i wouldn't take any under 50 mm as they be to small once you shell them..then again you gota find the empty shells when i throw them back once ive picked a bag im usually too full to carry them back ..

Ive always been amazed at the size of the pipis on that bank, and tuatuas as well in amongst them.  Last time I was there was in a thunderstorm and one of the bolts of lightning struck a boat, that made the hairs on my neck stand up!  Luckily no one was in it at the time.
 
Going for a scollie dive tomorrow in the harbour, and maybe a dive along the coast for some bugs if that swell isn't wraping around the heads.

Went and fished there on friday evening, pleanty of kahawai and trevally, but they were largely juvenile ones (we put a couple of better ky we caught early on back hoping that we'd catch bigger later on) mate hooked into something decent that managed to find a wharf pile and bust off, possibly a small king as the older asian couple that were there said they'd caught and released a 52cm one.

went again on sat morning at dawn, more juveniles, mate got one decent trev 40 sumthing odd cm, had some guys come along in a 4wd fishing whilst playing mai FM pretty loud, mariah carrey and craig david just aren't good fishing music...   they put out a kahawai livebait but instead of a baloon or float or sinker or having it free running they had a 1/2 squashed waikato draft can tied on at the swivel Confused, it got nailed though...


...by a shag! LOL


came back again for the evening, the spot we fished the other times was taken up by a guy teaching his little son how to fish, cast etc, so we went a bit furthur over to the left and gave enough room so that lines wouldn't cross or fish wouldn't run over lines in the strong current, then along comes this asian bloke with his 3 sons and parks themselves (4 rods) between the 2 groups and then they proceed to cross over everyones lines and use sinkers which were too small to hold in the current to throw out small hooks then decided to keep every kahawai that came in from 35cm down to piddly 15cm and they caught lots too, really peeved me off. was kinda hoping to see them take an undersized trev so i could have reported them, or had a go at them or something, but they just caught and killed juvenile kahawai hand over fist and as the fishing regulations currently sit there's nothing that's illegal about that (pleanty that's wrong with it though).

Hi All
My understanding is that for the Auckland region the pipi limit is only 50 but outside that, including Marsden Pt, the limit is 150. I was up there about a month ago and was really annoyed that people drove their 4x4s  along the beach from near Ruakaka to get pipis.  What's wrong with parking near the refinery and walking to the pt? In the early 70's I worked at the refinery and had access to the jetty. Some nights fishing consisted of a stick with a piece of string, a wire for a hook and some white material. Great for yellowtail. Basic but it worked. Have fun. MRQT.
