I find that the channel around Bean Rock nearly always produces something. It's just a matter of finding the right depth and avoiding the ferries!

Easy launching from narrow neck and normally some fish about when the tide is running, just be careful as it flows pretty fast in the channel and you drift pretty quickly at times.

Be safe out there, and good luck

If the wind stays down just head to the reef at Leigh...just be careful if the weather is at great as the current / wind can make it pretty ugly out there
