  • That is awesome! Never heard of the yellow tail kingfish so I looked it up. Big mistake...just add it to the bucket list.

    Regarded by many experienced saltwater anglers as, pound for pound, the toughest fish in the sea, the yellowtail kingfish has a distribution that takes in the inshore waters of the southern half of the Australian mass. This spread extends roughly from Hervey Bay, Queensland, to Shark Bay, Western Australia, and also takes in sections of the Tasmanian coast. A big fast growing schooling fish, the king – as it is aptly known – has been recorded at weights in excess of 50 kgs.

    Also found in New Zealand, in the eastern Pacific off southern California and in the Sea of Japan, the kingfish has a close genetic relationship with the amberjack and Samson fish. In “overlap” locations such as offshore reefs in southern Queensland the fish identification skills of anglers have been put to the test when all three have been taken during the same session.

    Anglers with the experience to make the call rate the kingfish as the greater challenge. It has a deeper bag of dirty tricks than relatives; hooked kingfish make a beeline for any structure and actually rub against underwater objects in efforts to dislodge lures.

    Besides size, strength, a backstreets knowledge of its surrounds, and availability, the things making the kingfish such prime quarry for lurefishers are its aggressive disposition and at times a complete lack of caution. Almost a death wish.

    • It's the fish that made me fishing crazy! I have now travelled the world as a professional crewman and captain and kingfish are still in my top 5 favourite fish to catch. Same family as an amberjack but they could pull an AJ backwards.

      They taste pretty bloody good as well. Some of you may have heard of Hamachi. I like them sashimi, blackened or in a green curry.

                  Speckled Perch, or whatever else hooks up, typically using the boats as much as possible, salt or fresh.

                  The one near thing of living in Okeechobee, variety.
                  10 minutes to fresh, 1 hour to salt.

                              • Stinky pinky and the alien. These are BIG Lures!


                                a good one from friday


                                this one pulled the crimp out of the trolling weight on our short line and the long rod caught it when the lead started to sink. We still got the fish!




                                Saturday morning they were chewing!


                                Did a trip to the pigs on sunday via a popular dive site

                                The pigs seemed happy
