Very long time since i've posted and looking forward to chasing the kings on Tamaki drive (not to be mistaken for the queens of k rd) shortly...
Anyways in Coro with the family last wkend walked out to the nearest point from the accomodation with with a basic set up ie rod reel hook and a bag of pillys came back with a Ky and a very nice 45cm snap for dinner.

As always fish your feet and dont over look "easy spots"

Forgot to mention i lost quite a few fish, the only thing i changed was going to j hooks over circle hooks!
So you guessed it, back to circle hooks to see if that was the issue.

Shot out to Ngarunui beach in Raglan this morning caught 3 snapper which I released as they were under 35cm (I don't take anything that is under 35cm) and one Eagle Ray which I ended up taking the wings off it as the bloody thing kept swimming back to shore every time I got it out deep enough to swim away arrived there at 9am and home by 1:30pm used a mix of squid and prawns every bait I put out got hit. I was using the Tica Kazumi Galactic which I bought last week and my Penn 7500LC.

i have been having alsorts of issues trying to post by my phone,since the website up grade!  which was the only way i posted since forever! 
but have been given an old lap top and it seems im back allowed to post again?  i liked the phone so may not post much in the future,
but went out on sunday and tried fishing 2 hours b4 high and then another 4 hours out going for zero bites!
my take is i dont like the high tide for surfcasting on the west coast north of baylys beach. but it was clear sunny/ and hot with no cloud cover.

went out yesterday, amongst the madness on the beach with motor bikes,quads, cars, utes etc driving like demons up and down the beach, i did come across the cops driving by baylys beach entrance but they were in a car not a 4wd which would have been useful further up the beach to slow some of these idiots down!
but fished last couple of hours on way out and 1 hour on way in for one snapper only 30/34 cms.but lost what i thought was a bigger one and not many bites.
was going to head down now but decided to leave it till a few idiots go home again.
was just over a meter swell and messy white water, but worth a trySmile

The big plus with level 3 has been more time for fishing... and Tamaki drive has been firing for the snaps, fresh caught sprats for bait and a couple of solid snapper sessions biggest ran 45cm so very respectable. Straylined with a half ounce sinjer some berley in the middle of the day we dont know how lucky we are....

Not wrong Big H, we don’t know how lucky we are. 
I had week off work and couldn’t go north for planned game fishing with boat, so spent week at Leigh where my daughter is living. Went off ti point wharf every day to catch bait and then forayed to various local rocks both ti point side and around Leigh each day. Fishing was mostly quite hard but managed couple of nice snapper most days.
Best session was off rocks early morning Thursday morning near Leigh harbour entrance.  Fish were on chew and of good size. Lost last one after it broke 30 lb trace just after hook up, was I suspect quite a big fish, but still came away with couple of nice 40 cm plus fish, and threw back a few well legal ones, as didn’t need them.
Was like being kid a again fishing off ti point wharf for piper and yellowtail. Even spied few very line shy bigger trevally swimming around.
Last evening went for swim at Mathesons, and watched couple of shags chasing big school of piper around the bay. Magic few days and very relaxing.

Wow,somehow I've got back to posting but no longer, (lips/hooked) after many posting issues!
But have been surf casting for not much luck when hearing of most having awesome times on good sized fish.
Must be me?, but been small kite fishing and I've been doing ok. Nothing big but that's fine with me.

Can we fish from the shore now? Closest shore. Apparently there has been a change on the restrictions.

Can anyone confirm this please?

Yes, only beach/wharf fishing in your local spot, (not your favourite spot) - if they are the same place then you're in luck.....
