The best fishing destination in Marlborough is the Marlborough Sounds - a vast area covering several thousand kilometres of coastline.
Specialty tackle and baits combined with knowledge of the fishes' distribution and seasonal movements are the keys to successful fishing in this region. Numerous fishing charters leave from Picton that can share local, insiders' knowledge on the best fishing spots.
Snapper, flouder and gurnard are some of the most common species you'll find here, as well as Tarakihi, cod and kahawai. The intricate waterways found in the Marlborough Sounds are nothing short of spectacular, creating an unforgettable fishing experience.
