I have a friend who lives in Maraetai, I was wondering if there are any good kayak fishing spots to launch from in the near vicinity?

Launch @ Maraetai is easy, anywhere off the beach - head out to 7-8m depth and throw some softies around :y:

I've heard of Duders as well... Is that a better fishing spot or would you recommend Maraetai more?

I would stick with Maraetai, but purely a personal choice as I like the slightly deeper water - Duders is quite shallow

Anywhere from Sunkist bay in Beachlands up to magazine bay at maraetai.
head out to channels in 6-8 metres or target a few reefs spots along the coast.
