With the weather heating up and a warm front staying over us, the kingfish action has been good and should stay good. Most of the action has been in 'the
rip' but there have also been fish caught offshore along most of the promontories. Livebaiting and jigging have been the standout methods, but tackle
prep has been key. A lot of anglers aren't arming themselves with enough jigs, as quite a lot get snagged around the the rip. Make sure you have a
good selection of weights and drop actions, along with enough assist hooks to re-rig if need be.
Customer Damien was out during the week around the rip where there were a lot of boats but a lot of people drifting off the fish. Damien managed to land
this nice fish on a squid hood fished down deep after getting smoked a couple of times of his lighter jigging outfit.
Customer Sinisa came into the store to stock up on jigs and kingie essentials, and his first trip out afterwards resulted in this nice fish. Sinisa grabbed
a few different colours in the 'slither' jigs in 165g and 210g and we rigged them up with the BKK ultraflash assist hooks, and they did the job!
