Haven’t heard a great deal of good things about this site with the jet boats and tourist maxing this place out.
Anyone else had any success in this spot?

the old timers called it Tucker Beach as you wouldnt get rich here, but at least you could get enuf for a feed. Not an area I would recommend.


Unless of course from the North island, then tucker beach is a wonderful place for gold fossicking
