Northern Coromandel Peninsular

Snapper fishing right up the east coast, targeting the 20 to 30 metres zone off the beaches, and any of the inshore reef structures is good at this time of year, and a lot of the holiday boat traffic has thinned out so there’s a bit more space out there. Kingfish are also found lurking around the reef structures and they are often difficult to keep out of the rough if you do manage to hook up, so make sure your gear is heavy enough with at least 80lb braid and 100lb leader.

This is the time of year that snapper really move in close in schooling numbers, and it can be very rewarding to target them in relatively shallow water off almost all the beaches on the east coast of the Coromandel. Now that the full moon has passed, the fishing has been fantastic over the last few mornings.

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.
