Hi All
Heading to Kawhai for a few days. Never been there before!
Looking for tips on where to fish, when best to fish (tidal traps?) and preferred fishing options (i.e. soft baiting vs berley/bait).
Any local knowledge welcome. Starting with a blank canvas.

Cheers (and Merry Xmas)

The harbor can fish well at times bait/burley would be the best option keep in mind the tides are huge over there so the current will be massive in the harbor. Fresh mullet seems to be the go to bait over there I've fished kinahaku which is just before kawhia itself plenty of snapper there in places just have to find them
