Kingie At Night


Recommended Posts

Hi Raiders,

This is my first post so here goes.

Went in the harbour Sunday night, arrived at the boat ramp at 7:00pm with two mates, Enzo & Phil and headed out to spot X. At 8:45pm Phil pulls up a nice snapper then i pull up a bream then Enzo's little bream outfit pulls up a nice 62cm Kingie which was put back to fight another day, or should i say night. Kingie at night!!! I didn't think you could catch kingies at night??? By the end of the night we ended up with 1 snapper, 1 flattie, 1 talor and 3 bream. :thumbup:

I have always wondered where the kings go at night?

Do we have anyone who can vouch if they feed at night - what happens to them - or do we just not really fish for them at night specifically?

Over in NZ they catch monster kings at night.

And Ive seen some massive kings caught way way down deep - and it must be dark down there.

There a number of FR posts a while ago (from Rzee I think) where he caught heaps of kings reeeeeally early.

So Im not so sure that Kingies are a day time only proposition.

Nice evening king there Dazza. Last Sat I hooked up a 60cm rat on pilchard cube and 10lb gear near Wedding Cake at about 8pm, catching it on light gear is satisfying. Small Kingies seem to hang around structure after dark.

Great post.

On the subject of kingies, I got my first one today, quite unexpectedly on my 2.5 kg gear whilst fishing for whiting on Bloodworm?? :biggrin2:

Gave my gear a good workout :1yikes:
