Hi Tuggan, welcome to the addiction :P
There are plenty of places to fish around the area; I started fishing at Middletons Bay before I found the nerve to attempt the surf; was a good launching spot but the weather needs to be right. Pretty much any beach / bay around the Taranaki coast is fishable if you can get to the water and the weather is right.
Just check out some of the previous trip reports & taranaki region posts to see the popular launching spots.
