Auckland, New Zealand - the city of Sails, home sweet home and a fishing paradise in the pacific ocean.
Auckland is surrounded by water. One one side we have the wild west coast beaches with great fishing opportunities around Muriwai, Piha and Watipu.
Those beaches are great for landbased anglers. Then there are the Kaipara and Manukau Harbours - both teaming with fish.
If you live out west and have a boat then you probably call those harbours your second home.
On Aucklands east coast we have comparatively calmer beaches and there are endless fishing spots within easy reach. From 
Mahurangi Bay all the way down to Muriwai - all within an hour drive from the Auckland CBD.
Fishing in the Hauraki Gulf or Firth of Thames by boat is productive all year around.
But even for landbased anglers there are still plenty of fish around in the shallows during low season in Winter.
If you have a kayak you can get fantastic catches. Many reefs and islands around Auckland are in easy paddle distance.
The stealth of a Kayak combined with soft baits and slow jigs is deadly on snapper, gurnard, trevally, john dory, etc.
And if you manage to land a kingfish from a kayak you'll be pumped with adrenaline for a week.
Auckland has many public boat ramps. Ideal to launch your boat or dinghy near your favorite fishing location.
The high season in Auckland is during the summer months. Early summer is spawning time and fish are hungry and lots of schools of snapper move into the inner harbours.
During winter things slow down a bit, but if you are lucky you might get that massive fish that decided to stick around in the shallows.
