Board the boat at the crack of dawn, head out to catch a tank of livies then we power to the outer reefs of the Bay. The excitement builds as you put the tackle over the side and down to the zone where the kingis are hanging out. We drop jigs down to the level the kings are feeding and as you crank and lift, hold on, this is hard but extreme fun!

Hang on as the hoodlum bites and heads to the bottom to break you off. Now it's up to you as Capt Rob guides you through the best techniques. Good luck! Most fish are landed but some are just too bad arse! That's KINGFISHING!

We leave the wharf then head out into the Bay of Islands to search the inshore reefs for the most sought after fish in NZ. Snapper school up in mass and breed in the Bay producing NZ's best snapper fisheries. Capt Rob likes to fish two techniques at the same time giving a chance of catching an awesome fish and still getting lots of action. Baits down, get ready as the bites are fast and furious with line peeling action. Snapper fishing bay of islands Style. When landed you can release your fish or bring it back for an incredible feed!

 We meet at the wharf and head out to grab some live baits, these are Kohura, Kawahai and live Skipjack Tuna. Then off to the hot spot where the Marlin are feeding. At this area the crew rig up a selection of baits and into the water they are released. The bite can happen quickly as the Shimano Tiagra screams to all and it is game on! Your adrenaline is pumping as you are strapped into the rod and are guided by the experienced team to play your fish. The Bay of Islands has the worlds largest Striped Marlin and Blue Marlin that can be encountered. Your crew will help you land or tag & release your fish. Time to enjoy the moment of victory!

Marlin arrive with the warm water in December and feed on large bait schools found in NZ waters. They hang around outside the Bay feeding on the large bait schools that gather off the Cape Brett area as the East Auckland current mixes with the fresh water enriched Bay of Islands tides. The Marlin gorge until the bait runs out or until the water cools down in May. Usually the latter!
