Thats a nice fish to catch during the winter.
I myself headed down to the big shark beaches, threw out three rods baited with pilchard. Sea was calm and I fished over high tide. I was hoping for a big shark, but caught 5 dogfish instead. I was not surprised. If the good weather continues the good fish might arrive in force earlier then expected.
Got trips planned for French pass and Titirangi over the next few weeks
