Flat rock is well known for its fishing, generally, you will find some sort of activity happening in the water around the rock itself.
Apart from chasing Kingfish and Kahawai, we haven't caught a whole lot closer to the rock structure.
The better fishing is out on the pinnacles south side toward Auckland.
We have spotted Dolphins, huge schools of kingfish, Kawahi & Trevally.
Be cautious if the weather is up getting to close to the rock, the current pulls you around.
