Hey,

Heading over to Collingwood for the long weekend with the kayak and was hoping to try my luck somewhere. Any advice for the best spots for kayak fishing in that area would be great!!

Cheers

I've very limited experience, but enjoyed some success in the lower stretches of the Aorere River and off the mouth of the Onekaka River.

Can be very windy that far west.
Not far out to the mussel farms but possibly too early in the season for snapper and kingfish.
Westhaven inlet can be good at high tide on evening , but could be a bit early in the season also. Make sure you stay out of the marine reserve. Launching at the Kaihoka boat ramp (eastern end of inlet) is OK near high tide but very muddy
