Could any of our NZ colleagues help me out, if I rock over to the North Island up around the Bay of Islands, is there any good offshore fishing there at this time of year, (next month or so). Good time to go now due to the strong AU$.
Could you suggest any other places anywhere on the North Island to try as well? Will have to do some trade off's with the handbrake but that's OK.
Your help is much appreciated Guy's.

I used to fish in The Marlborough Sound twenty years ago. Pretty good for Cod.
Don't know what it's like now. We had a Bach there and spent six weeks away at Xmas.
Only access was by boat. Bloody peaceful. Had a 'phone that could be switched off at the wall, open fire, outside dunny. Prehistoric but wonderful.

The Bay of Islands is a different kind of place. Never liked it much...too many touristy type people doing the same sort of touristy things.

No fish left in the Marlbrough sounds mate, and they are in the south Island. If you can get out to the bay of islands you'll do alright. Have you searched the net, should be plenty of charters available.

Thanks Mate, I had heard of some good Snapper action out Bay of Islands, the idea was to get some feedback first then look up charters in the best area.

Talk to dive shops as well mate...they often have contact details for skippers or charters services for taking people out.

Bay of Is is extremely renowned for it's diving and fishing etc...you should be spoilt for choice as to boats.
