Mangonui Harbour

Location

34° 59' 20.4468" S, 173° 32' 11.5836" E

This is a good spot to have a spin with light gear and small lures for kahawai when there are too many boats to make fishing at the wharf pleasant. Try fishing on the incoming tide for the best results

Mission Bay lamp post 95 and 105

Location

36° 50' 51.8028" S, 174° 49' 56.9208" E
Date & Time: 
high tide, near change of light

The lamp posts are numbered (ie, they have numbers painted on them).

Check out the area between lamp post 95 and 105 on a high tide, near change
of light. Massive casts aren't required, and you can talk to (well, check
out...) the rollerbladers / joggers as they run past.

The bottom is rough as hell, so be prepared to lose hooks / sinkers. Good
news is on low tide, you can get them back...

Great place to take the kids!

You can get to this spot by boat if you come down from Tairua. Or just walk up the beach from Opoutere on the north side of Wharekawa Harbour. It is a pretty long walk though. You can get some snapper and kahawai here and sometimes kingfish.

Waiokopu

Location

39° 4' 16.7268" S, 177° 49' 42.5604" E

The old wharf here is gone. Snapper and kahawai, and in the evenings moki, can be taken by casting seaward from the breakwater leading to the old wharf site. A short walk around the rocks to the right of the old wharf site brings you to some good kingfish territory. A good crayfish dive.
