Fishing in Auckland

Some people might argue that the year-round appeal of Auckland fishing is not what gave the city the title of the third most liveable city of the world. But we disagree. It’s not just good weather, mouth-watering cuisine, and stunning nature that makes ‘The City of Sails’ stand out as one of our favourite destinations. It’s the fact that this city’s two coastlines and two harbours make for enviably appealing fishing both at the dock and offshore. Luckily, the fishing trips Auckland provides are more than good enough to put you in touch with the gateway of the Hauraki Gulf and beyond. Trust us - once you have gone there, you will be begging to go back.

Rules & Regulations

New Zealand does not charge a license fee for recreational fishing in salt waters, but strict rules apply regarding daily bag limits, size limits, and prohibited areas apply. All skippers aboard registered Auckland fishing charters should be up to date on the current regulations and they will make sure you are fishing according to the local regulations.

Auckland Fishing Seasons

January

January is usually the beginning of the game fishing season in New Zealand. Warm waters of the East Auckland Current flow south from the South Pacific islands, bringing Striped and Blue Marlin to the offshore waters. 

February

The offshore Marlin bite continues, with long trips to the fishing grounds worth it to see a tail-walking Striped Marlin on the end of your line. Remember that fishing in Auckland is always at the mercy of the weather.

March

The end of summer comes around, and hotel rates drop. Offshore, the Marlin fishing is as good as ever, while Kingfish and Snapper are biting as well as ever in the harbour.

 

April

Autumn means one thing for fish in Auckland: eating. And for anglers, that means action. This is a great time to jig for Kingfish over offshore pinnacles or softbait in the inshore shallow waters. Temperatures are cooling down.

May

May starts getting cold. The Snapper and Kingfish bites are very good. Often, Marlin will congregate in May and early June, creating the best fishing of the year. Don't miss the Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show.

June

Watch out for workups of Kingfish for explosive fishing. This is officially Auckland's low season, so score a deal at a hotel before heading out on the water for some great fishing. But be patient with the weather!

July

Water temperatures drop to a chilly 12ºC, but don't let that stop you getting out on the water. This is one of the best months to hook a trophy Snapper or Kingfish. Look for Kingfish hugging the bottom and Snapper close to the shore.

August

With winds mainly coming from the west, August in Auckland means flat seas and few crowds. Make sure to be flexible, though - winds are always possible. Big breeding Snapper congregate in the gulf, ready to spawn.

September

Spring finally starts to arrive, and along with it comes changeable weather. Workup fishing gets better and better - but make sure to have a few possible days open, as it's not uncommon for wind and rain to stop play.

October

As if out of the blue, the fishing kicks in for real in October in Auckland. The fish are spawning and feeding up aggressively, with Kingfish coming up from the bottom to chase jigs, poppers, and stickbaits at the top of the water. Snapper fishing is as good as it gets.

November

Snapper close in on the harbours and estuaries. At this time of year, Auckland fishing charters can catch limits of fish in just a couple of hours. While you can never guarantee anything with fishing, you can expect to have fun right now.

December

The fishing remains on top form in the summer, with the possibility of Marlin now being added into the mix. Kingfish and Snapper are caught in shallow water and the harbours. How about that for a Christmas present?
