More consistent fishing at the King's

Chris' 36kg Hog

Hi all, just back from another good trip up to the Kings with a great bunch of boys from Hamilton, the Kingi's remaining consistent and a few bigger bottom fish showing up. With all the rain of late and all that freshwater running into the harbour it was a real struggle to catch livies at the wharf this week, thankfully though the Kingi's aren't being too fussy at the moment taking dead baits, both whole and cut. On the other hand, the big Bass are full of row and seem to be starting to move into the shallows to spawn, the deeper spots still holding good numbers, but not too many of notable size. Luckily on the way back into the Islands however  we found a new rock which produced some better size Bass and Hapuka. To top the trip of the boys hopped in for a dive on the way home which produced some nice crays, a great end to another successful trip. Till next week, cheers Phil.
