First Kingfish


Recommended Posts

If i didn't know any better i would have said that catching Kingies was a breeze........

thats what it seemed like when Wacko took me out last week

Catch the bait (squidies), rig them up on a downrigger, troll for 5-10 m, hook up on a fish, get you arms nearly ripped out of the socket, boat the fish, EASY.

Did this for a couple of hours for about 15 kingies, most in the 70-78cm mark :1prop:

sounds easy, but i think most of you know that it takes years of accumlated knowledge and time on the water to make it look that easy, thanks Jack.

on the way back to the ramp, hit a school breaking up on the surface and had fun on light gear landing a mix of fat sambos and rat kings,

you don't get many better days fishing :thumbup::yahoo::thumbup::yahoo:

i know you've all seen one before but the photos are my first couple of kingies. ( for the record my very first was 59cm, these are 75 and 78) and yes i still can't wipe that smile off my dial


ps kept 3 for mum and dad and relos
