Bay of Plenty

There’s the good news and the bad news, depending on what you like fishing for. The good news is that north of Mayor the yellowfin bonanza has been a real treat for medium to big game fans. Such an awesome run of this species is most welcome, and some fish have been caught right up to 80kg plus, even though the more common size is around 15 kg. Incredible fish that offer so much value to recreational fisho’s both as a fighting machine and a table fare.

Kingfish have been one of the more consistent species to chase over the last few weeks, generally smaller fish in the 10-13kilogram class are being captured however there have been a few bigger specimens landed as well.

There is plenty of buzz in the Bay of Plenty right about now in regards to the upcoming gamefish season, already there are reports of Marlin being spotted in nice and close to the shore. Other reports getting circulated are of schools of Yellowfin tuna busting up on the surface out from both Mayor and White Island. With Mahi Mahi, short bill spearfish and Yellowfin tuna already being caught in other areas of the country, it surely won’t be too long before the Bay sees some of this action. Here’s hoping for a cracker run of Yellow fin tuna this year.

Springtime in the bay of plenty is when we start to see an influx of life moving into the area, this year is no different with big bait schools of both jack and blue mackerel turning up in good numbers. Word has it the juvenile squid have showed as well at White Island and the offshore reef areas out of Tauranga.
