Was browsing through a geological paper this morning and came across this little bathymetric gem...

Low quality jpg unfortunately but might be of use to anyone who fishes around Waitara/Motunui area.

And overlay onto standard chart...

HLD, do you have a copy of the paper you could PM me. Very interesting. This is where I spend half my fishing time, the other half is 2km to the west, which is a big tease. I have never seen such a great bit of fishing data.

This was the only "fishing relevant" bit (I did the overlay), the rest was seismic data etc, i.e. subsurface stratigraphy.

I've got a few more to work through yet though, will let you know if your Spot X comes up ;)

WOW, thats the sort of data you would expect on your GPS instead of the standard issue maps at nearly $500...

Welcome to the neighbourhood (and the addiction).
Keep an eye on the Taranaki region forum and also the taranaki club section for people going out.

The common haunts seem to be Ohawe, the Port, Bell Block or Waiiti Beach ... although pretty much anywhere around the coast will give you some decent fishing if the conditions are right. If going around the coast (e.g. Opunake) be aware that conditions can change quickly when the wind picks up so be prepared.

If you are fishing for a feed, then bait & burley on the anchor is the most commonly used method in these parts. Standard straylines & ledger rigs won't have you going too far wrong.
