First kingie

Recommended Posts

Set off with DezM yesterday in search of my first kingie. Started the day looking for some bait. Soon boated 3 squid and off came the heads and we started trolling just past the spit bridge. Soon got a hit on the rod. Was a strange fight I didn't think the fish was on then I did then I thought I is dropped it. Dez was sure I was hooked up the whole time. I'm used to bites then a load in the rod. Anyhow after a brief but exciting fight first King on board celebrations and high fives all around just under legal but I didn't care.

Have told Dez he now his to get me onto my first jewie!!

Top effort mate

Such a good feeling catching your first kingfish, 

I caught my first one last week, I've been trying to target them for a while. So it was so nice when i finally landed one.

Did you manage anymore or was it just the one?

Nah just the one, but it's a great feeling, unfortunately not fully satisfied coz I want to pull out an even bigger one now.

Did you check out Stewy and Pete's post?  They were pulling them out like there was no tomorrw
