Three Kings Before the Storm

Hi all, just back from another great Kings trip with a group of Aussies and this time it was all about the big Kingi's. With just a couple of days out on the banks before we would have to make a run for cover the boys put in a massive effort and fished hard, bodies well and truly broken by the end of each day. It seems the Kingi's knew what was on the way as well, the Hogs feeding up before the storm, Michael taking the title with a very impressive 42kg Kingi. With just a few more Kings trips to go for the season the countdown is on and Cova and crew are getting amped up to head down South for the Bluefin. Till next week cheers, Phil.

Three Kings as good has it has been all season

Caleb with a fat as Three Kings Kingi

Hi all, just back from the Kings again and it was just as good as it has been all season. The Kingi's were in good numbers and size again, the biggest going a solid 35kgs and a few lost, just how big they were we will never know. 100 pound braid and 150 pound trace breaking under the shear strain, with just four trips to go if your coming up make sure you bring HEAVY gear, it just not worth risking losing that fish of a lifetime. On a more positive note, the water temperatures are still right up there, the latest surprise a nice school of mahimahi which followed one of our Bass up. However, with these warmer then usual water temperatures for this time of year the Hapuka and, to a lesser degree, the Bass, still haven't quite kicked into full spawning mode. The boys are now rearing to go, they're just waiting on the females. Till next week cheers, Phil

 Hi all, just back from our latest trip from the kings and this time we had a great bunch of blokes from Malaysia wanting to tackle with the Three king monsters. jigging was the preferred method and produced good results but the biggest kingi's fell to the few live baits that were used. Bass still remain in good numbers and size with Zein landing the showstopper at 42kg, Marlin are still around with  one nice stripey released to fight another day. Till next week cheers Lance
