NZ Snapper

At Easter I was on Waiheke Island (just off the coast of Auckland, New Zealand) to shoot my mates wedding. Mark had organised me to stay at Villa Pacifica. Cliff and Gaye are wonderful hosts. Cliff is a photographer and fisherman, so we hit it off immediately! He generously offered to take me snapper fishing. So naturally I assumed deep-sea fishing miles off-shore. However, I was completely wrong as we fished between 100-200m off the rocks in less than 10m of water.

In fact often he fishes from his kayak and when the tide cover the cockle beds will catch large snapper in about 1m of water!

Cliffs technique is to jig soft plastics with light gear across the rocky bottom. The snapper are not shy in taking the jigs and certainly a lot of fun to catch.

If you are planning a stay on Waiheke Island I can highly recommend Villa Pacifica.
