Excellent spot, easy to get to, deep water, plenty to look at for sightseeing etc, but, Seals take priority on real estate there occasionally….
Dropped a Snapper in the foul close in last time I fished Karaka. Suspended a Pilly under a float, set at about 15 to 18 ft deep.
This also works round by the breakwater wall against the hill on the opposite side of the bay, by the marina.
Cast among the moorings for Kings and Snaps (and Conger Eels!) Again about 15ft deep under a float works well.
