I’m just getting back into surfcasting and am looking for some tips on fishing in the Herbertville/Porangahau/Akitio areas. Any good spots? Any access denied areas? What to catch? Baits etc. I used to do a lot of surfcasting in Auckland and all points north, many years ago,10/04/2007 at 10:27 pm #7926
I would suggest that you ask the same question on the tackle tactics messageboard as there is a lot of hb sufrcasters on there.11/04/2007 at 8:08 am #7927
Thanks for that – I’ll give it a try today.22/07/2007 at 6:59 pm #8256
A visit to Herbertville in May 07 yielded just a couple of decent sized Kahawai but the prospects were definately there.23/07/2007 at 7:31 am #8257
We had a go out at Herbertvile and then Porangahau back in May too, but there was a big sea running with a northerly set at both beaches which made keeping a bait out there pretty hard!
A local lady at Porangahau who had lived there for nine years said she’d never seen it so rough! So, I can really pick my days ….
Thanks for the tip about the south end – will check it out (when it gets warmer).

It was a beautiful blue sky day but with a hard wind at our backs so it wasn’t that bad.
