Mayor Island, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

A number of Striped Marlin, Thresher Shark and Southern Yellowtail records have been established on these northern fishing grounds.

"The Bay of Plentyís premier game fishing waters extend to offshore islands, offering an abundance of fish catches including snapper, kingfish, tuna, marlin, terakihi, hapuka, shark and the giant albacore, (unique to the Bay of Plenty). According to world records, the biggest kingfish and snapper were caught in the Bay of Plenty.

Many fishing charters are operational with experienced guides displaying great knowledge of game fishing destinations. Mayor Island and White Island, New Zealandís only active island volcano, are two plentiful spots, with Mayor Island being a world-renowned place for fishing. A wide array of sheltered bays and inlets are easily accessible to the enthusiastic diver. " Extract in quotes taken from
