Butterfly Jigging, Mechanical Jigging, Diveworks Charters
White Island and surrounding waters are home to Kingfish up to 60 kgs. The extreme reefy bottom can make it a real challenge to land these fish which are extremely hard and dirty fighters, and those wishing to target them need to bring plenty of terminal tackle. Our methods of catching these fish range from drifting both live or dead baits, (Mainly Makerel, flying fish or squid)around reefs 30 -120 mtrs deep using running lines and ball sinkers. Tackle 15 kgs upwards.

Diveworks is perfect for deep fishing and Jigging with a sideways drift and plenty of room to spread out ideal for 6 anglers at a time, knee braceing sides and ample toe space make for comfortable fishing (You can even sit down on the job if you like)
