new pb kingfish Sydney harbour

Recommended Posts

Made a last minute decision last night to head out early for a possible king or two.

Arrived unpacked and unloaded the yak by 4am and ventured off to quickly to grab myself as many squid and lollipop yakkas as I could.

Squid were hard to come by with only 3 but yakkas were plentiful.

6 am sun starting rising so I got to my spot and sent down a yakka on one rod and a squid on another.

It was now 7:30 and still nothing has touched any of my baits and I was starting to get tired. VERY TIRED. I decided to chuck a metal on and have a shot at the occasional schools of fish busting up on the way back.

Ended up having a very nice king chase my metal for 15 meters before taking it 2 meters in front of me with insanely explosive force.

After a good 5 minute tug of war trying to get it away from structure the bastard ended up getting me around a pylon.

The 20lb braid and 20lb leader was not looking good.

I thought it was over until it started swimming back the right direction.

Shortly after the fish was gaffed and landed.

New pb fish going in at 92cm . Absolutely stoked and can't wait to get back out there after all this wind and rain buggers off.

Tackle.

Rod: nitro viper 6-8kg.

Reel: sustain 4000

Braid: ygk wx8 20lb

Leader: 20lb FC rock.

Both the braid and leader were frayed badly very lucky to land the fish.

Thats fishing for you. You spent how much time with good baits, squid etc doing the right things for not a touch, then decide to throw a lure around for something else and end up with a PB king on a metal of all things. :D
