Snapper are our primary target species on our charters as they are a sought after table fish here in New Zealand. Also the abundance of this species means they can generally be found in good numbers year round.
They are sought after not only for their delicious taste but also for sport as the bigger fish over 15 pounds can put up an impressive fight even for the most experienced angler.
John Dory are one of the most tastiest fish in the sea according to our skipper and most that have tried it have rated it very highly. Unfortunately these fish are less abundant as Snapper and don’t put up much of a fight when caught (more like a bucket of water being lifted up) so are generally caught as a by-catch when live baiting for Kingy’s or on a flasher rig.
