Game Fishing New Zealand


Game Fishing New Zealand. American writer Zane Grey famously described New Zealand as the “Angler’s El Dorado” after fishing here in 1926. Chasing Northland’s billfish is regarded as the pinnacle of sport fishing the world over. The rich waters of New Zealand’s far north have a hypnotic effect on those who would seek the site of jumping fully lit marlin. The names of the legendary New Zealand charter boat skipper Captain Snooks Fuller and his vessel Lady Doreen will live on forever. The quarry is the striped, black and blue marlin, along with broadbill swordfish, tuna, kingfish and sharks.
