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.

Known For

Waitangi Treaty Grounds, Rainbow Falls, Record-breaking Striped Marlin, The Parrot Place, Haruru Falls, Tāne Mahuta tree, ‘Hole in the Rock’, Yellowtail Kingfish Hotspot, Ngawha Hot Springs, Sandboarding, Action World Circus

Rules & Regulations

No license is needed for sea fishing. However, strict rules do apply to saltwater fishing methods, maximum catches for all species, particular fishing seasons and prohibited areas.
