More Three Kings madness

Hi all, just back from another stunning 5 days of Three Kings madness and what can I say it does not get much better than this. It all started on the trip up with a double of Stripey's with Chris landing the smaller of the two at 70kg and John landing a very stroppy 130kg fish not long after. The Kingies were again at their best with the average fish still maintaining around the mid 30's bracket.   Bottom fish were not too difficult to come by, chuck in a few crays from an early morning dive and a good feed was had by all, with a nice variety of  fat Bluenose Puka and Bass in the mix. With the Kingies and Bottom fish well and truly ticked off by the end of Day 3, Marlin and swords were the target for the remaining days. A couple of shots on the Marlin unfortunately didn't stick while an Oil fish was all we got to show for our swordy efforts, though still an interesting catch nonetheless. Till next week cheers, Phil
