New Zealand - Tairua & the Coromandel Peninsula

Coromandel - Saltwater Fishing Report


Well it looks like we have an epic season ahead. The water is a lot warmer out wide compared to the same time last year. Albacore in the 20kg range are now being caught and it won't be long before we get the first run of yellowfin tuna coming through. Then its marlin time!

As for our staple fishing, snapper and kingi's - well there is plenty of great fishing action to be had while we wait for the gamefish to arrive.

The snapper are starting to school up and are roed up. There is some great fishing in the shallows, perfect for light tackle fishing with softbaits.

The kingi's that we are so well known for are in great shape at the moment. Just like the snapper they are big and fat, filleting the fish off at the end of the day both the snapper and kingis almost have fat oozing from them - great for the smoker!!

The deep reefs are producing some great kingi jigging with lots of fish in the 20-30kg range.

If you're thinking of joining us in NZ for the 2007/2008 season, get in touch, dates are filling fast.

Until next time

Tight lines!
