The Hauraki Gulf in Auckland New Zealand boasts the best snapper fishery in the world.
Combine that with 4 gannet colonies, bottlenose and common dolphins and a resident Brydes whales population, and it adds up to arguably nature’s most spectacular show
Dolphins or whales force bait fish towards the surface, providing an easy meal for the seabirds. At the same time, remnants of baitfish fall to the sea floor, drawing in hungry snapper. This is Auckland fishing at its finest.
What about your own back door fishery? We would love to hear your own outdoor experiences.
