I do a little bit of shore fishing and occassionly launch my kayak in the Keneperu. Rarely fish the Pelorus. I prefer the Queen Charlotte, Port Underwood, Croislles Habour or D'urville.

I was born in blenhiem, lived there till i was 7, have SO many good memories of going out with my dad and his friend and his 2 sons in our 33ft old bridge decker boating down the sounds, fishing during the day, waking up to freshly cooked fish, the sound of the birds in the morning, spending the night in the coves surounded in bush,  rowing ashore and playing on the beach... my dad passed a few years ago and we spred his ashes in Ruakaka (sp?) bay,  2 dolphins followed us around the bay as we did it!
I have been back several times since and even the ferry ride brings back so many good times
 
I hear fishing is not so good down there now. i was born in 85 so my fishing days down there was prob 91-93

Plenty of crays at Port Underwood but not of great size. Females are now half and half out of berry.
 
As for Nile Head. If you find the schools of snapper it's definately worth a fish as is Stephens Passage. Got quite a few snapper and kingis over winter around the top of Durville. I'm looking forward to summer so I can get up there and have a serious fish for some kingi's as the ones we got over winter were a by catch on the ledger rig when fishing for snapper

hell...toot'n'whistle fishes well!
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.
