Located 35 miles off Cape Rienga at the top of New Zealand lies these magnificant islands and flanked by underwater sea mounts known as the Middlesex and Kings banks. The complete structure sits above deep water cannons and with this comes the cold currents dwelling up and mixing with the warm surface water that pushes down from the tropics. The banks are 6 and 9 miles long respectivly giving extreme water flow and currents that gather huge amounts of bait fish.
Predator fish hunt these banks and result in the largest concentrations of fish that are found in New Zealand. These banks are world renowned for having the largest Yellow Tail Kingfish, Striped Marlin,Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Hapuka, NZ Bass, Swordfish and a huge amount of reef species that live on the edges of the 3 Kings and its islands.
The Islands are spectacular in its own right with deep water rigth beside the group but with spectacular reef systems that provide fornomal fishing for Kingi, snapper, tereiki, travelly, John dory and many reef dwellers looking for a feed. The bait are grouped up beside the Islands and allow excellant chance to catch the best live bait being the blue mackrel and at night at anchor the fun of chasing large arrow squid that we do eat and taste good but dropped down on the banks provide an instant bite usally to a massive kingi or marlin, get close to the bottom and its a good chance its a Puka.
The 3 kings Island provide shelter and cover for the fishing boats that make the passage off the top of the country and is a pleasant sight when the conditions can be a bit challanging. The Great Island is the largest with anchorages in 3 locations depending on wind angle and swell. The Princess group has no shelter but exceptional fishing and usally fished with drifts giving exceptional jigging and live baiting producing great kingi action. Just a under a mile off the Islands are huge tidal swills and produces marlin fishing right up close to the cliffs.
Further North off the King Bank lies the Goadby Bank and is world renowned as the best Swordfishing to offer. This is bank that runs off the 3 kings ridge that protrudes 100 miles North.
