French Pass

NZ Fishing News - - Fishing Personality -

The area around French Pass can be an out­stand­ing an­gling des­ti­na­tion through­out win­ter, al­though a de­cent-sized boat is re­quired.

The area is af­fected by strong cur­rents when the tide is run­ning, and deep reefs mean a good va­ri­ety of fish species is avail­able through­out the cooler months – in­clud­ing snap­per, king­fish, large trevally and big blue cod – some­thing will al­ways be feed­ing.

For those keen on div­ing, the wa­ter clears up over the win­ter months be­cause plank­ton blooms are not as pro­lific. The spear-fish­ing can be world class.
