It’s heating up as can be expected in the Coromandel, with good fishing from right in close to way out wide. The really exciting news is the yellowfin tuna have arriving as per last year, which is a very welcome return, and means last year was not just a freak anomaly. We can expect to see these amazing fish appearing anywhere from Mayor Island, right up the Alderman Rise, on past Great Barrier and the Mokes, right up to the Bay of Islands.

We have been out pretty much a week straight, every day, and the fishing in the Coromandel has been going off. Mostly fishing out wider has been where the action is, with kingfish really firing up on the chew. The inshore snapper fishing generally takes a little bit longer to really get going, and by all reports the fishing is typically hit and miss depending on tides and other factors. We expect the good snapper fishing inshore to really start picking up a bit closer to December.

Springtime in the Coromandel means a few things change up. The awesome bluefin run has moved on up north to traverse around the top of the country, so attention now is firmly back on snapper, kingfish, and deepwater species, with a bit of diving in the mix. Gamefish action won’t kick off until much closer to Christmas, so until that fires up properly the outriggers will be stored away for a few months

The big excitement at the moment off the Coromandel is all happening with the migration of the southern bluefin tuna moving up from Cape Runaway in their trek north, and now are in reach of trailer boat fishermen leaving from the east Coromandel coast. These magnificent fish are definitely a bucket list ticker, and this year seems to have been one of the best on record for them.

Autumn fishing in the Coromandel can be some of the best we get with most fish in superb condition when you do find them. The big game has tailed off, but there is still the chance of a stray billfish hanging around for another couple of weeks. Snapper fishing can be good at the moment, with plenty of good resident fish holding in close to the reef and foul structures. Many of the school snapper have moved off the sand out deeper, so fishing the beaches can be really hit and miss depending on the tides other factors. Last week we had plenty of really good beach fishing off Kennedy Bay, Matarangi, Kuoatunu and Otama with 40 plus cm fish in pretty good numbers in around 20 metres.
