The Ranfurly Banks is located 25 nautical miles off East Cape and rises from 200 to 20 metres in the shallows and is spread out over 20 miles.
Strong currents and upwelling's pushing up over the rocky sea bed and sea mounts of Ranfurly Banks feeds large numbers of huge hapuka, bass, trumpeter, terakihi, blue nose and kingfish in relatively shallow depths of 30-150 meters.
Ranfurly Banks boasts a world class Yellow Tail Kingfish fishery, unbeatable stick bait and poppers surface action and jigging which attracts jigging specialists from around the world every year.
The banks lays claim to several world records, including Yellow Tail Kingfish, 37kg line class world record of 50.6kg caught aboard CASCADE by Ricky Williams in 2010.
"I have had the pleasure of doing a couple of charters each year for the last 5 years, with Cascade Charters.
The trips have been nothing short of brilliant. They are a really slick, professional well run operation.
Skipper Mike has an excellent knowledge of all thing fishing, and knows all the spots to go. He has a great sense of humour and goes the extra mile to ensure everyone has a great time. I will continue to use Cascade Charters for all my fishing trip in the future. They are one of the best Charter Operators in New Zealand, and I highly recommend doing a trip with them."
