Straight out off the beach opposite Whatuwhiwhi is a good place to start !...

Try netting for piper in the bay just to the left of Whatuwhiwhi. Used to be an old guy there MANY moons ago called Oscar who did real well netting for piper there. Use doe burley/bread to draw them out and you should see them on the surface
