Fishing the Ranfurly Banks is truly a once in a lifetime experience! Situated 25 nautical miles east of Hicks Bay off the East Cape of New Zealand, the Ranfurly Banks is world renowned as a top fishing mecca destination.
This isolated fishing area covers over 30 miles. It ranges in depths from 1000 metres to a shallow plateau coming within 20 metres of the surface. Fishing is mainly in depths ranging from 30 to 180 metres.
Ranfurly Banks is a very similar area to top fishing mecca locations like the King Bank and the Middlesex Bank off the Three Kings Islands in the Far North.
