I went to Muriwai for an evening fish 4pm Friday 9th, about 1m swell, and a light SW ruffling the water, High tide was 6 pm. If I had known the swell was going to drop overnight from 2m I would have been there at dawn, but evening second best. There were 5 others there with a few trevally and snapper caught earlier.
High tide came and only the odd bite for the long distance casters, bound to get better as the light goes!

 







By sunset the breeze had dropped, the water surface oily, the swell heaving the surface up, and the odd breaker on the sand bar 50m in front of the rock.
3 hours without a bite for me, and only 4 of us left, then just as the sun set 3 of us hooked up within seconds, and from then on a bite every cast, mostly trevally of about 2lbs also just undersized (27cm) snapper. I finished with 3 trevally and 4 snapper, all returned to the water, Nearly dark, I had a torch but decided to finish as the bites were all undersized snapper by then.
On photo 3, the black backed gull waiting for anything fishy left lying around.
