Best spot probably Jones as there is so much you can do there a big area to cover. And some very nice fish to catch.


Looking at trying out Jones bay for the first time, actually, will be the second time further north of Narrowneck for me in the 3yrs I have done kayak fishing

A quick search suggests Maori rock or Fairchild
Seems to be big current as well, but no real trip reports around this time of season Jun - Aug & what I have seen can be really good or very ordinary

Prefer anchor burley & baits over the colder months
Was thinking the shallows anywhere up to Bluebell pt on the outgoing & riding the incoming on the way back in
Any specific shallow suggestions would be welcome

Hi BananaBoat.  Castor, campbells, mairangi, and murrays bays for me is my local.  If I’m feeling very energetic l paddle as far as up to browns bay by reef there to get among the massive schools of gurnard. You can launch there as well, and can it can be excellent fishing, also if you are thirsty afterwards has excellent pubs ... my favourite is the deep creek.
To get fish like Dan did today you need to go a tad further north.. like an hours drive, at a guess, might be bit less depending on traffic, although probably not a lot of traffic 6am in morning. Either way too early.Wink

Thanks mate, will have to try out the grunters up your way

The Manukau is my local only 6ks away but have struck out learning new fishing grounds on that side quite a few times recently & yet, have met other kayakers who do really well on that side with the grunters but keep it all a secret where they go... oh well, that's how it goes sometimes eh, until you crack it

Yes Dan,   although some good gurnards off there now for the patient.
What I am quite keen to see turn up are some really big snapper off bays by end of August like we had last year.  Saving up a few flounder heads for them.
Tucked up at Tutukaka tonight.It is very stormy. Am drinking freshly squeezed grapefruit (off my well laden tree here) with tequila and soda... called a “paloma”, very refreshing!

On the way out to Maori Rock is an area I call the washing machine because the current rips through it. Looking east out from Jones is a bunch of rocks jutting out from the mainland. In front of them is another shallow reef not exposed and in front of that is the sand to anchor on. Should be good on an outgoing plus you berley into a big gut.

G is the spot. Haha

The whole red triangle is some of my favourite fishing. Personally I never bog myself down with an anchor moving between spots with SBs and jigs is my way to go. Some days you hit the mother load in that area and you get some epic fishing. Other days you might get one shot on a big un it is up to the fishing gods.
