Another superb winter day, a bit crisp to start with, a lot of sun with some southerly breezes. As planned, I went down to the beach at high tide (big tides at the moment with a strong flow…), down to the river mouth. The wind was blowing right at me, and it is a very shallow, stony beach. I gave it a try, but went on to the point between the two beaches at Puriri Bay.
Didn’t seem much better, at least this spot was sheltered, and I managed to catch a couple of mullet and tiny Kahawai, which I’ll be using for bait tomorrow. Conditions permitting, I’m planning to go to either of the marked spots below. Haven’t fished any of them and don’t have any preference; will have to see what they look like tomorrow, where the best access is and then make a call.
FYI, have a look at Land Information New Zealand. You can download New Zealand topographical maps and charts at no cost. Top!
