Raglan Fishing Report

Epic start to gamefishing season

----- Advertisement -----

The early warm water this year has now turned into an epic start to the gamefishing season with over twenty marlin now caught or weighed out of Raglan.

West around 100 metres and even out to 300 metres has been producing with north and south of this area going well too. Big albacore tuna have also been hitting the lures in two’s and threes during a day’s trolling too. Skippies and albies start just outside Gannett Island in 55 to 60 metres. Look for the birds in closer as well as these small tuna species have been caught in 35 metres.

The summer snapper fishing has for the most part been good with nice pan sized snapper to be had up the coast in and around 20 meters. Just move around until you find the hungry ones. When the bite is on the snapper are hitting all baits it seems. There’s a trevally bycatch too along with the odd gurnard but the school snapper can be thick and fast so even the odd big kahawai is struggling for room.

With this weekend’s forecast looking excellent there’s plenty of options to fish out west in the coming days.
