There are great surf casting opportunities on 90 mile, and Rarawa Beaches. Rock fishing at Henderson Bay, Tapotupotu and Spirits Bays. There is good wharf fishing off Pukenui Wharf, or at the Houhora Big Game and Sports Fishing Club. We can help you with directions and bait advice, or you can hire a guide (even better advice!!)
If you have your own boat or kayak, the harbour is surprisingly good and offers sheltered fishing. There are 3 boat ramps, at Pukenui Wharf, and the game club (all tides) or at Houhora Heads on low tide.
