We fished at Te Haruhi Bay a few times over the last month. From the car park walk down to the beach and turn left to get to the rocks. It's a bit of a walk and climb  and easier at low tide. Mostly kahawai and snapper, but heard of people catching kingfish too. The beach is actually perfect for the kids, so the rest of the family can have a nice day out while you are on the rocks.

Im not sure if you would really want to overnight there bud, really exposed with the wind fair whipping though on any sort of westerly plus space is at a premium on the high tides.  Its seriously flat too so doesnt fish to well on the high.

If you wanna do a an overnight would suggest walking to the blowholes instead as you will be out of the wind there and space to setup a tent/camp area for the night.  Just have a chat to the farmer that owns the land (he's located 1/3rd of the way between wattle and cake on the house up the hill, roger is his name) to make sure its ok with him just in case he has his cattle down there.

Here is some for me:

Torbay, North Shore
- Park at Rock Isle Rd, walk towards the Island on the left side. Accessible only halfway to lowtide or u can wade swim ur way in/out. KY and Snap to be had.

Winstones Cove, North Shore
- park at end of Gray cres, walk down the council path to the beach and walk ur way to the left ledges. Accesss is halfway to lowtide. KY and Snap.

Cliff Rd, LongBay
- Drive to end of Cliff Rd, take stair path down to the rocks. Make sure not to fish past the Marker as its a marine reserve. Can be fished both high and low, but I found it best on the incoming to high. Huge schools of horse KY hang around here from late summer to Autumn. Snaps are very seldom.

Wade River, Whangaparoa
- Fish the river mouth south of the river. Ledges on hte left are more accessible only on the low. KY and Snaps but heard from the locals they often see kings come up to the river during summer chasing mullet.

i was fishing there last week, it was an easterly wind direction, and rain was coming, we drove up past the lighthouse down the no exit road to where the big hill is, then walked straight down, then along a little more to the sand, it  took around 30 minutes to go down from the top, saw the corps of this dead cow there, got to the bottum, and headed to the point on the left at low tide, first cast hooked me into a baby snapper, then the tides cam in pretty quick and we were there around 20 minutes before having to leave(8:30pm) so we went to the right toward wattle bay and sat there for a few hours with very little bits until we thought we would start the walk up the hill(around 11pm) started ot wind in and i was hooked up, but it was only a eagle ray, i love my soft bait rod, it seems strong i managed to pull the ray right in to the beach on 30 pound braid. wished it was a snapper but o well, so after this we started our walk up the hill, got a 3rd of the way up and found lots of gorse so headed back down a bit then off to the right, then back to left, found some cow ruts so headed up those to the top of the hill, took us around an hour with around 20 2 minute rests, although it was alot easier than climbing up the higher angled hill. good and fun trip, but i wouldn't do it again without looking where i am going on the way down before dark. you could camp on the side of the hill where we walked up, not so much wind and gorse there for shelter , some stares(cattle) were in the paddock tho, so be careful they dnt fall on your tent whilst you are sleeping or something. i will be going back to this place sometime closer to the summer, but DEFENATELY NOT fishing it at high tide as it is a waste of time. hope this helps you guys and if you go, let me know how it goes.

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man ta fish and he'll sit on the rocks and drink all day.

Whats your favourite local fishing platform into the auckland harbour?

In a NW, N, NE wind mine is bayswater on the breakwater surrounding the marina
W wind the devonport wharf, cast towards east
Anything Southerly i like the end of beaumont st at the bit Wheel.

Anyone found much difference between spots around the harbour?

Went there today, there is a bit of weed and snagged once. Other wise I had a couple of big hits but was unable to land anything decent. I have I hopes for this spot. I was using a 2 hook leader with the sinker at the bottom. Going again later in the week and will try floating bait.

Yeah we were there a lil late so the tide was a bit high but will make sure to hit it early next time and get to the point there. Found there was a bit of weeds straight out the front and I think that when your at the point you'll be in front of them. Should be al gud!

Waiwera: The Island just off Waiwera has caught some good fish in its time! However, it is only accessible at low tide and the easiest way to get at it is from the Wenderholm side. BUT it does catch good fish. everything from large Snapper to Kingfish go past this point. I'll see if I can get out there this weekend and try it our for you!!
