Fishing

Your host, Greg, is an experienced fisherman and will be happy to organise a fishing trip either at sea or on many of the nearby lakes or rivers of the Waikato or Bay of Plenty, including the Rotorua Lakes District.

We can organise sea fishing trips for you departing from either Waihi Beach or Tauranga. These can vary from short half day fishing trips or full day trips. You can choose from fishing in the tranquil waters of the harbour between Matakana Island and the mainland or head out further into the ocean for some deep sea fishing which could include a trip to Major Island.

Inshore fish species includes snapper, tarakihi, kahawai, red snapper, gurnard, kingfish and the odd trevally. For those who like to go out deep-water fishing then you can fish for bluenose, hapuka, gemfish and the possibility of the odd bass.

We are happy to organise a days fishing either fly fishing for trout, on the harbour or in-shore reef sea fishing.
