While there haven't been too many reports posted on the kingfish front, there are still some numbers of good fish around. The rip is still holding fish,
with some larger fish making their presence felt to anglers still out chasing them. The offshore fishing around Eden has been very good for the kingfish,
and if conditions are similar to last year the fish could still hang around for another 6 weeks or so.
Gawaine Blake took a trip up to Eden over the Easter break in search of a few kingies, and he wasn't disappointed. Gawaine purchased a new Shimano Tranx
301 reel to try on these fish, and knocked them over with it easily. The Tranx is a 'low profile' style baitcaster but with serious grunt! Gawaine
found most of the fish out along Mowarry Point and jigging was by far the most effective method on these fish, with some nice fish also caught on 2oz
weighted soft plastics fished around the reef. Most of the fish that were caught were in the 10 - 13kg mark, which are excellent sized fish.
