Bay of Islands Fishing Report - March 18th, 2020

18 March 2020

The world environment has changed a lot in the last month or so and so has our weather. 

We have finally had some rain and wind, flicking the autumn weather into gear. The snapper are now heading up into the estuaries. Fishing in the harbours and estuaries is at its best at the moment and will be for the next couple of months. 

Kingies are much the same as they have been all summer - spread out. They are both on the deeper reefs and throughout the bay around bait schools or patrolling the shallows. 

Big game fishing has been fairly slow. Although some very nice marlin of all three species have been caught, numbers seems down. It's good to see reasonable numbers of yellowfin around though. 

Fortunately, there's still plenty of season left to go, and striped marlin fishing only gets better as the season gets on. 

Tight lines,
