Auckland Fishing

Aukland Fishing

Positioned around an extinct volcano and two harbors, Auckland is an enthralling place to go fishing. If you have never visited a black sand beach before, you will want to visit the western side of Auckland. On the eastern side of the city, you will find gold sand beaches that are framed with red-flowering pohutukawa trees for another enchanting experience. Holiday islands off of the Auckland coast offer additional scenic places to go fishing. Hauraki Gulf, Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean are the three bodies of water that are accessible from the city. An isthmus connects Manukau Harbor and Waitemata Harbor, another interesting feature of this fishing destination. With ease of access to the many rocks and reefs around Auckland, it provides excellent fishing year round.

Australian Salmon, Kingfish, John Dory, and Mullet are common inshore fishing around Auckland. John Dory, Hapuka, Pink Snapper, Trevally, and Yellowtail Amberjack are common catches nearshore. If you take your boat into offshore waters, you could be rewarded with, Marlin, Pink Snapper, Swordfish and Yellowtail Amberjack. Offshore fishing Auckland can produce Albacore, Bluefin Tuna and Yellowfin Tuna, as well as several species of billfish. At Waitemata Harbor, two fishermen worked together to reel in a monstrous 815-pound Swordfish. It took them eight hours to get the fish into the boat. Large Marlin have been caught in Auckland's offshore area as well. A 10-year-old wrestled for an hour to reel in a 268-pound Striped Marlin, breaking the previous record for Auckland.
