Sydney Kingfish


Recommended Posts

Think this is my first post as i usually just sticky beak the reports on this site. but i thought this may be a good way to start my first topic on fishraider. Day started with a troll from brown down south for yellow fin. got a touch on what i thought was a huge alby as i seen it chasing the skirt for a while trying to eat it, on a twin hook rig was suprised not to hook up. anyway went very quiet so we decided to call it a day, took my stella on board with a jig stick just in case, stop at 12 mile on the way home and first drop produced this girl. Possibly one of the biggest kings i seen out of sydney. im sure other raiders have seen bigger. anyway hope the yellowfin turn up soon but will also be happy to catch a king this big every trip this season.

Very nice King you got Josh, well done on catching that.

Did you happen to measure it at all?

Thanks Fezza i actually didnt take to much fuss on the measurements, the only scale we had on board went 1m and she went past that, as for kgs i called it for 12kgs as i also didnt have scales on board. i recently just got back from fiji fishing GTs and got this monster and i still had my drag set on a stella 20000 for them and this king was still pulling line. amazing how strong they fight.

Nice kingy mate! Too bad we can't find them that big when I'm out with ya! Just read another report elsewhere of a 140cm king caught off Sydney over the weekend. The bigguns are definately around atthe moment!
