February in the Coromandel has seen some XXL versions coming up.  We have seen days with multiple greenbacks going over 30kg and really testing the guests on board and the equipment.

Fishing out of Whitianga this month has been great from shallow water to out in the deep the kingfish have been on the chew. The bait has been good in the bay most of the time except for after the big easterly blow which made things a lot harder for a while. Curvier has been fishing well, most of the rocks up there seem to be holding good numbers of Kingfish with a welcome by-catch of some nice Snapper and the odd Hapuku.

We are looking forward to seeing what the rest of February and March bring us!

To see more of the catches each day visit the photo gallery page. Photos are uploaded daily.



Bay of Islands fishing report

After a spate of crappy easterly weather patterns over the first fortnight of the month, it was great to have calmer days in the Bay, the sun was shining and the kings have been biting.


We have had great success on our shorter half-day snapper trips around the bay with guest anglers each day getting a feed on reasonable size fish out of the shallows.  Good to see a wide age range of fishos too, proving you are never too old to enjoy fishing!

Our Kingfish trips out of Russell and Paihia have really been picking up with lots of action and some larger-sized models turning up.
