Big Game Fishing
While visiting the Bay of Plenty, take on the challenge of landing one of New Zealand’s big pelagic game fish: - blue & striped marlin, spearfish, yellow fin tuna, mako & other shark species as well as smaller fish like mahi mahi and albacore tuna that make excellent eating. On extended charters, (weather permitting) we recommend night drifting for the elusive broadbill swordfish – one of the most powerful game fish (pound for pound) in the sea.
Sunfish Charters encourage tag and release but will respect the angler's decision to retain any fish within quota and size limits.
If you are serious about big game fishing, then we recommend a 4 to 5 day game fishing safari to give you and your companions quality time amongst the big fish (while saving you money on your land based accommodation).
Sunfish, based in Tauranga, carries a large array of electronic navigation and fish finding equipment together with the very latest and best Penn International reels and Kilwell "live fibre" game rods to maximise your chances of success.
We can arrange day membership of the Tauranga Game Fishing Club that will register your catch, verify line class, provide weigh in facilities and who knows, even process your catch for world record certification.
