Good place for big blue cod and tarakihi in 40 to 80 metres. King-fish can be got in the summer and warehou in the winter around the major pinnacles. It can be a very tidal and expensive on terminal tackle with numbers of barracouta, sharks and snags. Groper are caught in the deeper patches from 75 to 125 metres.
