At this time of the year, you have to expect that there will be a greater number of boats on the water during holiday time. Fishing is always going to be a hit and miss game. Sometimes they bite and sometimes they do not. Fewer boats probably mean that you may have more success. For me, the lack of fish did not detract from trawling around the beautiful coves and getting enjoyment from the trip as a whole.

This is not the best time of year for fishing in the Bay of Islands but it was still a great morning out on the water, and we did bring home dinner. For lots of fish, probably another time (not New Year's peak) better.

They were well prepared and ready to go. Amenities on the boat were in great condition and the tackle was high quality.

Take a cooler box to keep all the fish you catch - the crew cleaned and filled it and we had heaps to take away with us

Weather is always unpredictable so don’t blame the captain. He does his best to get you on the fish with all things considered.

You do not have to worry about anything! The captain takes care of you and the fishing part!

Blue sea charters are obviously experts on where the fish are, no mucking around took us straight to the spot, straight onto the fish, maximising our fishing time

The morning trip is best with comfortable boat and beautiful views to see in the bay of islands

Get an experienced captain and look to have a period of tide rising to get best chance of success.

Difficult time of year but still plenty of fish to catch if you put the time in
