Coromandel - best place to launch near hot water beach?

Hi All, As the title says really, any suggestions on launch spots? I know that hot water beach gets some pretty dumpy surf so not too keen to launch there. I'm heading over Coromandel for the long weekend. Gonna be staying at hot water beach with some mates and thought I'd bring the yak. Any suggest...

Re: ANZAC Day Mission?

Well I've had a change of plans, my spearfishing mate is coming with me and I don't think Sullivans is very well suited for spearing unfortunately. So we'll be heading up to Matheson Bay in Leigh instead. Gonna be an early start. |-) |-) Sorry fellas, at least there'll be more fish for the rest of y...

Re: Sorry folks another NN TR

Question: Where's this yellow buoy? Thinking of heading out sometime this week.

Also, has anyone tried launching at Orakei and heading out to Bean Rock lighthouse? If I head there I might have less traffic to fight against on my way back central..

Re: A cautionary tale

Yeah but actually deploying the chute I thought might give you some drag, making it impossible to catch a wave and get turtled. It would be a slow, but steady ride back to shore. You may get splashed a bit though..

Re: John from Auckland

I asked him if he was related but he said he wasn't ugly enough for that to be the case? Not sure what he meant by that ;)

Hope to see you out at NN sometime

Cheers

Re: A cautionary tale

I've been in a similar situation before up at Te Arai Pt. I've tried catching waves in my sea kayak before and you just get turned sideways and flipped over.. So this time I tried to avoid catching any waves, paddling between sets.. however with a wave bearing down on me and not wanting to lose any ...

Welcome! I'm new to the forum too (although I've been kayak fishing for a while).

John from Auckland

Been lurking on this forum for a while checking out the odd trip report and pieces of advice. This morning at Narrowneck I got asked if I was Mitch from the Kayak Fishing NZ forum. It's probably about time I made an account as I'm aiming to get out on the yak a lot more this year. I live in Auckland...
