probably around 8 to 12 lb but few over 70 cm and couple kingfish as well, all the big ones coming from right hand side corner and we only using 2 -3/0 circle hooks with tiny magic squid for bait do the damage make sure the squid is fresh others wise you become 90% fishermanEmbarrassed,this is the best time to fish over there before the crowd turn up after xmats

Hi few spots in whangaparoa.

Army bay: Head east..... if it looks good throw a line . good snaps, KY, trev and kings. Fishing is really good if you don't mind getting a bit wet. just be careful your not swimming home  Smile
 
Fishermans cove: High tide: off of the rocks to the left of the ramp. cast straight or you loose gear. Try big floating baits in late pm/dusk.
Low tide: walk to the water.... see drop off (goes to 8-12 meters is dived it) cast into the channels heaps of pannies hang out here.
 
"pony club": before the golf course existed it used to be frequented by girls on horses....we followed and found fish. head around to the back of the golf course and park up at the walkway to nowhere. Level of fitness needs to be better than average here as there is a cliff to climb down and slippy rocks to negotitate. Get there early or the best spots go fast (right at the base of the cliff then head south). High tides best. floating baits. We used to snorkel here as kids to get the summers worth of sinkers so you have been warned. Seen big Snaps, schools of KY, and big moocher kingis crusing here. Heaps of piper and other baitfish around.
 
Duncansby rd: Park up walk down the s**ty hill and stairs to the ledge best spot eastern point cast north or north east bottom in this spot is sand-mud so sinkers ok. Anywhere other than this I wouldn't bother too much foul within casting distant and its shallow (5meters) to 100m off. The usual fish here. Mate speared a 12.5 kg king within casting distance.

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.

I fish here every chance i get (when in aukland), always worth having a livebait out, but i recommend a slidebait rig if others are fishing to avoid tangles. Try and use large baits as barrcuota will take any small livies Angry and as said previously, some absolute whoppers cruise this ledge (be ready with pitch baits/popers), usually when there are good numbers of kahawai present. And have the tackle to cope, lost a 30kg+ there oct/2010! Best high tide at daylight, burley up a storm and stay till after low tide!

I went to the ledge thats mentioned above, and noticed that the rocks to get to the ledge is quite slippery, so good shoes with heaps of grip is a must.....   Wink

Even my father-in-law went for a slide and landed on his arse, and what made it worse hes on wolferin too. So hes got a big bruse on his knee. All we could see is him going over the side up the top where the stairs are. so we ended up just going up the top next to the stairs Big smile
