Certainly got a few interesting species, I have never caught a Terakihi or a Octopus from the shore.
I often fish two or more rods even down on the big shark beach. I have found that if a second rod does start to run the fish normally stops and rests after a while and would not run any further. Well, I know that Sevengillers, Topes, Doggies and Rays do that and the other species are not big enough to pull much line. They would only start moving again once pressure is applied.
