Wellington’s south coast is rugged and exposed, giving limited access to the fishing grounds. However with the NW winds it’s becomes opportune to fish for Terakihi, red and blue cod, trevally as well as snapper and kingfish. There is good fishing within the harbour, with seasonal catches of trevally, snapper and kahawai. Fishing outside the harbour is more rewarding with most sea-going species available. Surfcasting from the rocks and reclamations inside the harbour is popular. Weather conditions between North and South Islands are often unpredictable so local knowledge is prudent.
