I used to launch my 12fter next to the boat ramp at Tapeka beach all the time. You dont have to go far that whole area is one big fishing spot. Take sum bait flies and some burley as there is alot of piper in that area which make great bait. Lots of Snapper, Trevally,Kahawai and rays to keep you entertained.. I'll be up there over new years as well.
