Father's Day gift idea - subscribe and be in to win!

Subscribe and be in the draw to win the Ultimate Workup Package valued at over $3,000.

The spring workup season is an exciting time to be on the water, with large bait schools being targeted by gannets, dolphins, whales, and hungry aggregations of large snapper lurking beneath.

This month and next, NZ Fishing News is giving one lucky subscriber and a mate the chance to get amongst the Hauraki Gulf workup action with premier charter operation, Ultimate Charters

As well as a day on the water, the winner will also take home two Penn combos paired with Berkley leader and lures specially selected for soft baiting and slow jigging in the workups. 


A subscription is a great Father’s Day gift that keeps on giving all year round, with the added bonus of putting dad in the draw to join us on the water for an action-packed day.
