January
There are lots of Snapper in the channels around Waiheke with excellent opportunities to target schools of larger fish below the gannet and dolphin workups in the outer gulf and Firth of Thames. Kawhai and Kingfish are abundant and often caught in workup fishing.
February
The snapper have generally spawned by now and are enthusiastic on the bite. Fishing channels and workups both effective much like January. Marlin are now reachable on overnight trips to the back of Great Barrier Island through Mercury Bay and the Aldermen's.
March
Larger Kingfish now hunt the inshore waters and can be picked up mechanical jigging, live baiting or surface fishing using poppers. Bigger snapper are now moving into the shallows and are great to fish in the evening. Workups out wide are still happening and it's an ideal time to target Striped and Blue Marlin in the blue waters East of Barrier and Coromandel.
April
Snapper fishing is still great under workups with the Brydes whale making regular appearances alongside the dolphins. Kingfish are moving out and are great fun on any pins in the outer gulf. Marlin can still be targeted on weekend trips to Barrier.
May
Hapuka move in to the outer gulf in greater numbers and can be targeted at slack tide when not hard out jigging for Kingfish on pins at Cuvier or the Mokohinau's. Expect to catch large Snapper on the deep water pins as we mix up the target species out wide.
June
Kingfish, Hapuka, Snapper are all still on the fishing menu out wide. This is a great time to get out and experience the outer islands of the gulf. Have the bay to yourself and enjoy excellent fishing and comfort in overnight trips to Great Barrier, Cuvier, Mokohinau or Mercury Islands.
July
Much the same as June. Shake off the winter blues get out wide and expience the bounty of the Hauraki Gulf.
August
The male snapper re-enter the gulf in large numbers to put on condition for their spawning responsibilities in the coming months. Catch the first wave of large fish as they pour in through the Colville and Cradock Channels as they feed up large around the western coast of Great Barrier.
September
The Snapper are moving into the gulf again with the girls following the boys in. Expect to catch fish on the 40 meter mark in the gulf or the Firth of Thames.
October
Stray lining for big snapper in the shallows, early morning and evenings delivers great xos fish. This style of fishing gives you a great shot at double figure fish weights. The horde advances on the inner gulf and open water fishing on the sand with ledgers delivers reliable catches.
November
Snapper moving into channels can be like shooting fish in barrels. Soft baiting comes into its own as we set up perfect drifts for you over prime fishing grounds. Let us show you how to get the best out of your soft bait sets with tips and tricks and a little local knowledge.
December
Snapper fishing is excellent everywhere in the channels, in the middle and back paddocks of the gulf. All styles of fishing work so let's tailor a fishing trip that meats the needs of your group. Don't forget to ask Santa for a new fishing kit so you can start the new year in the right frame of mind.
