They certainly are out there in the Rangi channel so I guess any of those bay's Takapuna, milford castor etc would be a good starting place but whether they come in close enough is the question, I guess early mornings when it is mostly calm would be the best time on an incoming tide. Good luck you got to be in it to win it.

West coast harbour spots are your best option at this time of year. Big kahawai can be a bit hard to find off the shore on the east coast in high summer, but the west coast still seems to have good fish in the hot months. Look for anywhere that has current and a good tidal flow. I understand that there are some good harbour channels out that way that provide some excellent early morning wading on an incoming tide close to the city. Good luck!

Manukau harbour is probably firing at the moment as I was swimming out at French bay the other day and a bait ball came in and was swimming around all the beach goers. I would think they were anchovies which is pretty early to be in close but i think the crappy weather has brought them in early

Normally March/April along the east coast is good as the anchovies come in close to shore with the kahawai close behind.
