    Only fished Amberly but I think all the ones you listed are shallow sandy beaches but you’ll get rig and elephant fish there using crab and shellfish baits. Further North you’ve got Nape Nape and Conway Flat which are a bit deeper. Also Manuka Bay is meant to be good although lots of snags you can get blue cod there.

    Fished amberley a few times only ever managed small dogfish. got bluecod at manuka bay. Never had much luck at nape nape.

    Night or early morning seems to be the key no matter where you go.
