Heading to the Super City on Sunday as a taxi for kids' sports.......and as it's only a training weekend, thought I'd drag the boat along and take advantage of the awesome forecast and wet a line. Drop off the kids at 9am in Newmarket ........so where's the best ramp to head to from there? Need to be back at Auckland Grammar for 3pm so there's a few hours to play with!!

Any advice on where to head - all thoughts gratefully received as I'll be armed with the trusty "Spot X" guide but precious little else other than a modicum of common sense.

Forecast does look good. Just be careful with traffic etc. if it was me I would use the ramp at Westhaven. Lots of parking, easy route from Newmarket and back. Harbour speed limit is 12-knots so keep that in mind until you pass North Head. Plenty of fishing near Rangitoto, in the Motutapu channel, and around Motuihe. Just look for other boats there will be plenty out.

With your timing I’d stay close, and either pick western side Rangitoto or western side of Waiheke. Have fun!

Looked like a magic day. I heard lots of people didn’t catch much over the weekend. Glad you made the journey though, when the fish aren’t on just cruising new water is good fun.
