El Donna Sportfishing

El Donna Sportfishing offers seasonal game fishing trips around the scenic waters near the Bay of Islands. Here, you can find Striped Marlin, Black and Blue Marlin, Broad Billfish, Snapper, Kingfish, and Mahi Mahi. These big names can be caught on most of full day trips, but you’ll sometimes need to put in extra effort to get them.

From late December through May, El Donna Sportfishing takes on seasoned and novice anglers. You can troll or go popping for Marlin, or go bottom fishing for Snapper. Stay overnight for a multiday trip, and you can go fishing around the Great barrier island, Coromandel and the Gulf Islands. Whichever you choose, you’ll have a good chance of landing massive fish.

If you want to get hold of Broadbill Swordfish, the crew is specialized in daytime deep dropping. These waters are home to some of the largest Broadbill swordfish available in the world!

El Donna holds the unofficial world record for the largest ever Striped Marlin caught on rod & reel at 243.6 kg. This means that the captain and deck hands are experienced and will work to help you land your first Marlin.

El Donna is 38’ Pelin Sportfisher flybridge. She can take up to four anglers, and has the stamina to overcome the big bills. She is powered by a 420HP CAT 3126 engine, and can reach speeds of up to 20 knots.

Once onboard, you will find all the gear, and you don’t need a fishing license. The boat is rigged with navigational electronics, has tuna tubes, outriggers, a flybridge, toilet, a fighting chair, live bait well, an ice box, kitchen, bed, and a toilet.

You will get snacks and water on shorter trips, and the crew will serve coffee, tea and lunch on longer trips. They will make sure you have an enjoyable outing, and will do their best to cater to your needs. Wear comfortable clothes, put on sunblock, shades, a cap, and take medications if prone to seasickness. Youngsters are welcome, but might want to start with shorter trips, if first timers.

Book your trip, and enjoy!

Game fishing is my passion! Having caught hundreds of Marlin, my biggest joy these days is to help other people enjoy the experience. If I'm not fishing in New Zealand, then I will be found in Tahiti or Cairns for the Big Black Marlin Season. With an amazing crew including Capt A.J. Barton - Barry and some very capable deck hands, we have the ability with El Donna to introduce you to a wide variety of fishing - from the fast moving Blue/Striped and Black Marlin to Broadbill Swordfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and Kingfish. Eldonna has the enviable reputation of having landed the biggest ever Striped Marlin in the world on Rod and Reel - 243.6kg! We have an amazing coastline and fisheries for you to enjoy and we look forward to meeting you soon!
