Auckland's Hauraki Gulf is teeming with life and is a popular place to fish. Commonly caught fish include snapper, kingfish, john dory and trevally.
A fishing charter is likely to take you out to Auckland's inner islands - the waters off Motuihe, Waiheke and Rangitoto have been known for their abundance of fish. Longer overnight charters may take you out towards Tiritiri Matangi and Great Barrier Island. Most skippers will be only too happy to tailor a fishing experience to your needs, and some will cook your catch up for lunch or dinner - delicious!
