Fishing charters

fishing chartersInternationally renowned for both light tackle and big game fishing, the Bay of Islands is New Zealand’s favourite maritime cruising ground. With over 140 islands and numerous sheltered anchorages, the Bay of Islands offers an unparalleled opportunity to fish in waters that are abundant with sealife.

We recommend sustainable fishing charters whose policies are to preserve the enjoyment of Bay of Islands fishing for future generations. Sustainable fishing includes catch and release of big fish because they’re important breeding stock, minimum size guidelines which exceed NZ government regulations and per person fish limits.

Land based fishing can yield a good catch and we can give you tips and suggestions and recommend fishing spots to try. We can also organise fishing charters for you. Russell – Orongo Bay Holiday Park has a fish cleaning area and smokehouse together with plenty of room to park your boat and trailer. The Russell – Orongo Bay Holiday Park Lodge is an ideal venue for fishing groups and clubs, with a cosy log fire in winter and plenty of BBQ areas for socialising.
