The Big Six is back in 2024, and it’s going to be the biggest and best yet. In October this year, eight lucky winners will be heading to Fiordland for seven days of hunting and fishing. Their goal: to score as many points as possible by catching the biggest fish, tracking down the most species, grabbing the biggest cray, and bringing a deer on board.

For the last decade, Rheem has hosted the Big 6 challenge over 48 hours, with the winners needing to catch two saltwater fish, two freshwater fish, and two game animals in the allotted time. Now situated in the deep south, and with an extra few days up their sleeves, the competitors are going to have even more opportunity to bring home a trophy catch. The twist this year is that the competition will now be run on a points basis, with the participants earning points based on their respective catches. The competitor with the most points at the end of the week will be crowned the 2024 Big Six champion – but regardless of who wins, all eight participants will have enjoyed a week in some of the most beautiful scenery NZ has to offer, so there’s plenty to get excited about!
