Boat Fishing

Peaceful Bay has easy, firm, protected beach launching with a small jetty to assist launch and retrieval of your vessel. From there navigate the well-marked passage out from the bay and find an abundance of fish harbouring structure at any depth.

The Continental Shelf

The continental shelf off Peaceful Bay is an amazing place, if you study it close enough you can see a 15 nautical mile chunk of the shelf has broken away and created a magnificent series of canyons. The heads and steep edges of these canyons lend themselves to great deep water fishing.

Load up your reels with heavy braid, circle hooks and heavy sinkers or big jigs, crank up the transducer and get stuck into shelf size nannygai, pink snapper, hapuka and bar cod or venture a little further and drop a line for blue eye trevalla.
