Botany Bay King


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Woke up Sunday morning ready to tackle all the chores around the house.....Instead decided to go fishing for a Kingie for dinner. Got on the water about 7:00am for a downrig around Moli point for two kingies undersized...great fun.

The southerly quite annoying so I decided to head off to oil wharf and anchored up in about 10 meters of water. Dropped a whole squid 1 meter shy of the bottom for a king or jewie... As I was playing with some trevally, when the rod buckled over and the dragged started to scream as I saw the line heading towards the oil wharf. Put the brakes on it and reel the sucker in for an 86cm Kingie. I was stoked.

Went straight home and cooked kingie cutlets for dinner.

Can't wait to do it again..........

Gee, can't get much better than that Savage73! 86cm kingy!

You certainly made the right choice, catching a kingy is more important than chores around the house!

Must have been a great fight.

Top catch.
