New season of DB Export NZ Fishing Comp off to a flying start

The new season of the DB Export NZ Fishing Competition is off to a flying start with plenty of entries in the first few weeks and some great fish have been caught. The Preston brothers feature strongly in the snapper stakes with Mick’s 84cm snapper currently holding 1st place on the snapper leaderboard and the two brothers having three snapper in the top 6.

It’s not just about the longest however, as every angler who enters an eligible catch goes into a monthly draw for some great prizes from the competition sponsors, Shimano and Bradley Smokers. Entry is FREE thanks to DB Export and measures are available at Burnsco stores nationwide or online at FishingComp.co.nz

About the DB Export NZ Fishing Competition

DB Export NZ Fishing Competition is an on-line fishing competition based around a measure and photo format. Anglers from anywhere in New Zealand can participate and win some fantastic prizes by photographing their catch on an official measure and entering on-line at Fishingcomp.co.nz. Leaderboards display catches from around the country for all our popular inshore species.

At the end of this season – March 31st 2017 - there’s some great prizes for the longest fish of each species and plenty of time to catch the big one or just get lucky in the monthly ‘Lucky Angler Draw’.

Most importantly, once you have taken the picture of your catch on the measure it’s your choice to keep it and share some of our finest seafood with friends and family or release it.

Entering a catch is as simple as taking the photo on your smartphone then loading it at www.fishingcomp.co.nz using the phone’s web-browser, or on any digital device including tablets and laptops. Registration is FREE thanks to DB Export.
