New Zealand - Tairua & the Coromandel Peninsula

Coromandel - Saltwater Fishing Report
Vanuatu Blues and Coromandel Snapper
We've just got back from our annual trip to Vanuatu. Travelling with us was Lonnie McAlister, Bill Pepper and Ian Hogan, who all managed to battle with the big Blue and Black Marlin that Vanuatu is famous for.
The wahoo were in good form, most of them well over 20kg, and every night we were able to tuck into fresh mahimahi, wahoo and yellowfin for dinner, whatever was leftover feeding the local village at Lamen Bay, Epi Island.
If anyone is keen to join us on a trip through Vanuatu's islands and enjoy some of the world's best gamefishing next year then get in touch with us at [email protected]
Back on the homefront on the Coromandel, New Zealand, the snapper and kingfish are still biting. We're only having to travel 10-15 minutes to get into prime softbait country for snapper, and there are plenty of slimy mackeral schools around to keep good yellowtail kingfish on the bite.
We're gearing up for the coming New Zealand kingfish season, if you'd like to come and tackle one of New Zealand's renowned kingi's just give us a holler!
All the best!
