Sounds like a good arvo with a couple of rod spikes.

Best baits and likely species this time of year?

Is there a sand dune or something at the start? the outback gets up and down 90 mile ok.

theres a very small dune to go over onto the beach,subaru should be sweet. Mostly grunters and KY this time of year....and rays.
dont get my personality mixed up with my attitude,my personality is me,my attitude depends on you.

Go out through Otaua, follow Forestry rd, turn left into Wilson Rd, right into Perham, left into Lookout Rd, Veer left into Coast Rd, then Right into Reardons rd. Look on google maps and it should make sense. The roads can change a bit out there due to the forestry work but if you follow your nose you will be fine.
2nd track down to the beach (on the start of an 'S' bend) has easier access and I have caught more fish there than any other place around the mouth. 3 hrs before high tide, after high tide, the fish seem to head right out to the mouth. 
Haven't fished there for a couple of years but this is where I used to fish before i invested in a kayak.......then a boat.........then a wife...........don't go fishing as much as I used to now!Cry

Quite a privilege to see the maui. You should let doc know about it, I think they keep a database of the sightings. Not sure who at Doc you contact, MJ will know

Hi All 

This forum would be the best place to ask this question.

I haven't fished waiuku area for few years.

What would be the best condition to fish kariotahi beach?

Specially wind wise?

regard

I fish there a lot and usually incoming  tide ..If the beach look for what will become a hole as tide forms ..If River mouth its also much the same but less critical ..But always remember dont park your car any lower than just on the high tide mark..That way if anything goes wrong at least your car is safe..

Do the walking...Much safer and even driving do not repeat no not drive near the water as often spots are like quick sand and you will sink in deeply...


Back to the beach..Look for where sand dunes are closer to the water and normally mean deeper water at half tide up ...Well thats what i do..Long time since snapper caught of the beach..........Phillip
Sverdfisk .......Marlin in Norwegian

Im surprised more snapper arent taken here. Anyone know the reason?

West coast is monster snapper coast for those that can access it. 

Its a hard choice choosing a place to live in the future, Taranaki or BOI, both great fishing, but BOI has better inshore spearing.
