Evening to Night Fishing in Tauranga for Snapper, Tarakihi and Trevally

Evening fishing is a perfect way to spend a warm summer’s night fishing for Snapper, Tarakihi and Trevally, as well as a range of other reef fish.

Evening to Night fishing is perfect for those who can’t get out fishing during the day due to work constraints but can make it out for the evening.

From January through to May/June is the perfect time for evening fishing, as the Snapper tend to move into the shallower waters around Karewa and the middle ground between Motiti and Mount Maunganui.

The fishing is typically shallower than our day fishing trips, ranging anywhere from 15m – 50m, depending on the moon, tidal flows, and weather conditions.

The tackle used is generally ledger rigs with 3/0 hooks and a 5oz – 12oz sinker depending on the depth of water being fished. Squid, tua tua and skip jack tuna are usually the most successful baits for the evening fishing trips, with mullet, pilchards and octopus also accounting for their fair share of fish.

If you are looking for a night fish for your group feel free to contact us for more information.

Evening or night fishing for Snapper, Tarakihi and Trevally is an excellent way to get out fishing after work, to catch a nice feed of fish. Perfect for those summer months when the Snapper are predominant in the shallow water.

If you are on your own and would like to join a group, keep an eye on our calendar for any Public Evening Trips.

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
