Fishing with Greenwoods Fishing Adventures

Friday, April 19, 2019

This week on Norfolk Island has been just too windy to do any fishing out wider than the sheltered sides of the Island. But nonetheless the fishing has been exciting and productive in close. 

With the last of the warm water still hanging around we’ve seen a huge influx of small baitfish that has brought with it all the species we love to catch. A few boats have braved the choppy seas for a feed of Sweetlip and other small cod while the rock fisherman had some great fun chasing down pelagics on the slippery stones. Kingfish, Bonito, Trevally and Yellowfin were all caught from the rocks including some huge Sweetlip. Even the spear fishermen got some quality fish just off the shore. 

One interesting find was an 18kg Kingfish washed up dead on one of our beaches with a big Puffa fish blown up still stuck in the Kingfishes mouth. A tragic way to go for such a great fish but it certainly made someone’s morning walk. The week ahead looks ok with the wind dropping down and sun shining. I won’t be fishing though, not here at least, I’m off to NZ to help a mate out with his charter business right up North. I’ll be onboard for 2 x 5 day trips to the Three Kings Islands chasing Marlin, Yellowfin, Bass Grouper, Harpuka, Bluenose, Snapper and of course massive Kingfish! I’m going to deckhand but fingers crossed I get to wet a line myself every now and then to see what all the fuss is about. So if you’re coming to Norfolk between now and the 11th May, Greenwoods Fishing Adventures is out of action. 

There is Charter Marine or Advance Fishing that will take you out to experience the incredible fishery we have here. 

Good luck! Cheers for now, Scotty
