Those 160 long hardies are great for shore jigging. Gromph, you cast them. Checkout shore jigging on youtube

Early days for me, and still coming to grips with the whole thing but I'm using a couple of rods and reels at the moment....

Rods
1/ Shimano Backbone Elite, 8ft, 6 - 8kg

2/ Berkley Dropshot, 7ft, 3 - 6kg

Reels (both fixed spool)
1/ Okuma Epix EB30

2/ Daiwa Legalis 2500

Thanks Brown Dog, I was wondering what people were using.  I have a 6-8kg Catana which is just over 7' long that I have tried some lures with.  Mainly because I happened to already have it, but it seems to be in about the same range as you are using as well.  I have a few odd lures I have picked up around the place, but I think I must try and get some of the Sebille ones.  I've tried mostly on the boat, without much success, and I think I should try land based.

Hey guys went out yesterday and tired my new setup okuma xfactor 6-8kg and penn 4500ssv spooled with 20lb powerpro and 20lb fluro leader.tried a small rapala popper for quite sometime with no luck also some Zmans and some gulp on 1/4 ounce jig head i had a good knock on a really brown coloured gulp jigging grub missed the hookup part to not expecting it nd boredom...changed over to a Sebile flat shad and omfg they went nut 4 fish on 4 casts was shocked but those trebles are dangerous and blood hard to get out may change to a couple small livebait hooks.im definitely loving the sebiles so seriously contemmplating on changing over to hardbodys altogethor for local fishing

Perhaps up your leader im using 20lb fluro may go to 30lb shortly my favourite lure is the sebile at the moment and top catch are doing them for 30 percent of so pretty good saving

Sorry Rockhopp, should've clarified, I lost the fish due to them spitting the hook, rather than busting me off, all my lures where lost over foul ground. That stick shad was working really nicely, and was casting a mile, lost it on the very last cast of the day, which made it all the more painful!

Yeah we landed around 14-15 kahawai I got 4 on 4 casts with the sebile I set the hooks pretty hard and run a pretty heavy drag. We had some kingys around to chasing kawai but they were nto remotely interested in the shads. The Kahawai were not interested in poppers either have a very small x rap and that didnt interest them either the brown sebile shad was the go but the me mate got one on a $4 warehouse slug but the sebiles were the go.
 
Heres my thought so far...this is confusing in terms of hardbody etc sinking floating this all makes no sense to me etc
 
Been lucky so far got softbait sorted there easy caught plenty of fish on them but what I was thinking of buying some bream lures from aussie as they look close to our nz snapper and there designed for it ????? what you reckon also a few piper hardbodys for kingys would be good

Also for walking the rocks has anyone got a belt bag or similar for story hardbody lures and maybe some pliers? contemplating in removing trebles and replacing with livebait hooks 1/0s thoe trebles are really hard to remove from kahawais mouth and super sharb

I've just bought some of these. http://www.torpedo7.co.nz/shop/fishing/tackle-bags/tackle-bags-belts/old-harbour-outfitters
I couldn't resist at that price. They arrived today and were much more robust that I expected for the price. Haven't tried them out yet, but apart from looking a bit of a prat they seem like they will be useful. The round pod is open at the bottom so I'm thinking it will be good to hold the rod if you can't put it down while dealing with a fish.

The clear plastic tubes in the main pack are 40mm diameter and 230mm long.  These easily fit all my smaller lures in, and at a push you could squeeze a Halco Rooster in one -but I wasn't thinking about poppers and stick baits.

shot out today for a bit of a test with the lures i got in aussie.
first spot quiet so moved to the northern side of whangaparaoa, water was super clear so that gave me a good look at how they move - turns out i have sinking, suspending and floating bibbed lures so was good to see the difference.
no fish about but did get pack attacked by 3 squid which was quite a surprise!
managed to hook a few but couldn't quite get them to shore.

anyone using a genie clip? some of my split rings are pretty tiny so i think i need some small pliers.
what does everyone else use?
