Snapper Fishing – 5 hours

New Zealand’s favourite fish.

Bay of islands Snapper can grow up to 35 pound in weight, an average size we catch is approximately 4-10 pound

The best time to catch Snapper is all year round with the summer months between November and March been the most productive time due to the Snapper schooling up to spawn, coming in closer to the shallow waters within half an hour from Paihia.

We fish for snapper on reefs and structured areas  using multiple methods such as Live baits Slow jigs strip baits and whole dead baits to suit the time of year and conditions.

There is always somewhere to catch a Snapper in The Bay of islands with lots of islands to shelter behind and fish
