Bay of Islands Fishing Report - September 17, 2020

17 September 2020

The days are getting longer and warmer and things are beginning to stir in the Bay.

Out deep we have been enjoying some solid hapuku fishing with some great ’puka up to the 40 kilo mark coming aboard. They have been fat and full of roe though some are already spent. Each trip has produced well and it is great to see many people to call stop fishing as they have enough since you can’t put these back. Alongside the hapuku have been plenty of gemfish, tarakihi and a few bass – all great table fish.

While the kingfish have been around in good numbers some days, they’ve not been consistent. More bait schools are moving into the bay and with these more predators as well.

Snapper have still been in winter mode however this will change dramatically in the next month as the first of the breeding fish will be moving into the bay.

With the weather warming up, the days getting longer and the fishing only getting better, we have some great times coming in the Bay.
