Parengarenga Harbor, New Zealand

More IGFA line-class records for Tope Shark have been set here than anywhere in the world.

"The legendary Bay of Islands Swordfish Club, author Zane Grey's favourite hangout back in the thirties, has a splendid verandah that overlooks the wharf. Entry to this venerable institution is restricted to members and their guests, but judicious pestering of Graeme MacIntosh, skipper of Mako and a prominent club functionary, might get you an invitation. Alternatively, if Hot Rod happens to be tied at the wharf, offer to buy Roy Harrington a drink and let him suggest the venue. The interior is gloriously festooned with numerous pieces of dead fish, several tons of silverware and the names and deeds of countless heroic fisherpersons.
