mixed swell... scarce bait... Finally made a few pieces, had my cousin with me, giving him instructions about the clicker, when my reel's clicker chirped, then peeled off fast.... Put the reel in gear... BENDO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice fight, put the muscle on it, saw it color about 12 ft down, was stoked. 18lbs 5 ozs



My cousin.. had a nice calico... wish I could have put him on the right kind...

Another nice king Chris. Do you ever jig for them with metal jigs over there as it is a effective way of targeting them particularly when they school?

Scott - i know what you mean - sometimes Kingies when they are not hungry attack a jig or popper out of just sheer agresstion. I've had live baits swming around a while followed by green torpedos but not luck. Out with a popper and very fast retrieve and the action gets a hit out of agression.

Either way a nice king of the yak. They pull like freight trains. yeah baby can't wait for summer.

Yes, Jig fishing is popular. We use Salas 6x heavy Irons for the Yo-Yo fishing, basically dropping it to the bottom, so it flutters like a wounded fish, then reel it up fast. You generally get hit on both the drop or wind up. This method is more sucessful in the winter months for bigger Home Gaurd yellows.. (Kings)

Also for summer are surface Irons, like Tady 45's when we see fish boiling are popular. Live bait is first choice in summer, but I always have a surface iron on an 8ft jig stick ready to fire if I see a boil.
