Kingi Heaven at the Three Kings

Good fishing in close to the islands
Hi all, just back from Jigstar Africa’s second rampaging run at the Three Kings and holy smoke Kingi fishing at its best was encountered on all fronts. The thing that was most pleasing was size, a very high standard indeed with the Joe average kingi at about 27kg lots and lots in the high 20’s and early 30’s were found, with the monster of the packs going an impressive 43kg , the other thing was location fantastic fishing around the princess group and great island, great scenic location with the islands as a backdrop. The boys only did a couple of drops for puka as they were flying home, but we still manage a few hogs with our crewman Phil landing his personal best. Till next week cheers Lance

Hi all, just back from a great trip to ranfurly with the boy's from highway stabiliser's, The boys got into some some pretty good sessions on the king fish using abit of everything from live baits to stick baits an the biggest King sling weighed at 37kg!! a hog of a fish aswel as many more nice fish, We certainly worked hard with the bottom fishing but the end result speaks for it self with the boys catching Bass an Puka up to 38kg's!!!
Till next time.
Cheers Steve.

More Three King Mules

Nice stripey on the trace
Hi all, Just back from another stunning trip with some hard core jiggers from Jigstar Africa. This was a trip first and foremost about jigging for big kingis, but as as you can see there is plenty of marlin about as well, we never actually targeted marlin just trolled lures between kingi spots and we tagged 4 from 7 bites, man makes me wonder what would have happened if we had spent some time targeting them. The Kingis bit well with many in the 30’s and 2 over 40kg with the best a huge 45kg fish, many more monsters were lost that either reefed the boys up or busted line or leader. If you have a trip up here I would like you to think very carefully about your tackle, we see trip after trip the boys being owned by monster fish and busting main lines mostly, you pay a lot of money to get to the Three kings and the only thing that holds you to that fish of a lifetime is your terminal tackle SO GO HEAVY , If it was me I would fish 130lb braid and 150lb fluro, many of our return clients do and notice no change in the bite except went hooked to a giant they land it, not lose it. The three kings is not like other places that receive a lot of pressure with fish becoming line shy, please think about it. Till next week Cheers Lance.
