Today, the Bay of Islands Swordfish Club has clubhouses in both Russell and Paihia. The rich history of game fishing in the Bay of Islands can be traced on the walls of both clubhouses. Exhibits of historic fishing photographs, tackle and memorabilia provides an interesting viewing for both anglers and anyone interested in local history – from the original catch boards from the 1920s where the name of Zane Grey can be found to the most recent “Grander” (1000lb plus). With outstanding views over the Bay and extensive photo displays and historic fishing memorabilia, both our clubhouses are ideal for an intimate gathering or large group.
Both clubhouses have full bar, restaurant as well as function facilities.
