Fishing in the far north is probably as good as it gets anywhere in the world and without a doubt, Doubtless Bay is one of New Zealand’s true fishing meccas with the country’s best table species and trophy fish up for grabs.
Set amongst a backdrop of hills and beaches, numerous reefs sheltering abundant marine life are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. It’s a great spot to drift about with a line out and the chance of nailing something memorable is as high here as it is almost any other spot on the coast.
At this time of year the weather can be calm, the swell low and the water clear. That being so, fishing from the rocks and beach is best at dawn or as darkness falls. During the day, you need to head to deep water offshore.
The Far North ITM Fishing Contest and Auction is a must attend competition.
Hosted in Doubtless Bay this is going to be a huge event in one of the best fishing spots in New Zealand.
