Thought I’d share my day fishing
Me and two of my friends had a fews hours free in the morning and thought what better way to kill a few hours than go fishing.
We were land based and just going after standard bread and butter species armed with nippers, beach worms and prawns at one of our usually spots.
We started fishing 8.30am with high tide scheduled for 10.30am. It started with business as usual with us catching a few undersized bream, whiting and snapper.
Around 9.30am one of my mates yelled out to me “there’s a big fish cruising by”. We usually see a lot of bull mullet around so I didn’t pay much attention.
That was until it swam past me and I saw it was a kingfish.
What happened next will be something I’ll never forget. About 20-30 kingfish started to bust up a school of bait fish literally at our feet!
It was incredible, as up to this time I had only seen this online. One of my mates actually managed to hook up to them. Twice! While me and my other mate couldn’t hook up. So much hate! Lol
After about 5mins the commotion was over and the kingys were gone. I was gutted I missed the opportunity to hook up to my first kingfish.
Or so I thought. 5mins later I latched on something that was smoking me. And when you’re fishing with bream gear the fight is even more intense!
Took about 15-20mins but managed to land it.Stoked!
They came back for a second run about 11.30am. The boys managed another one while I lost one.
All in all we landed 4 kingfish and 2 flatheads
Absolutely stoked I landed my first kingy. A little small but still legal at 68cm.
What a great day
