Top Fishing Charters in Bay Of Islands
Fishing in Bay Of Islands
Zane Grey, prolific American author and an avid fly fisherman, once described the Bay of Islands as the Angler’s El Dorado. Almost a 100 years and dozens of IGFA records later, little has changed in terms of New Zealand’s north fishing potential. The area still holds most of the world’s biggest Swordfish and Yellowtail Kingfish catches in virtually all line classes, with the Bay’s marine habitat still supple and strong, despite remaining one of the nation’s most popular fishing grounds.

Rules & Regulations
