Hit the water around 4:15pm, made spanish fairly easily at the can. Put a couple on and started to paddle... a few zzzz...zzz....zz, nothing committing, kept on paddling. Water was about 10 ft greenish water, incoming tide peaking around 6:30am. Sky was greyish, water warm, light winds...



Around 6:00pm the sun came out, looked nice, 15 minutes later in 95ft of water, same...zzzzz.....zz....zzzzzzzz..zz..z, I let this thing run for a long time, seems like this fish dropped my bait, but the rod loaded up nicely, but this fish was no match for my #50 spectra. About 5 minutes later, fish was on the gaff...



Sun went away, and the clouds came back, decided to head in early, landed about 7:30pm.



Saw a BIG WSB onshore, guy said it went 45lbs on his scale, looked over 50 lbs... Go get them!

Holy Mackeral, when you say "made spanish fairly easily at the can", what exactly are you doing? I assume you caught some small spanish mackeral at a fishing spot called the 'can'. In Australia, we can use Spanish Mackeral as live bait but as the minimum legal length is 75 cm (I think) then that is a very big live bait.

Nice fish ya got there. Would have been fun.

I gotta tell you Chris, all of these kingie posts (yellowtail to you) are making me have greener pasture effect. They used to be one of my favourite target species until I moved far enough south that they are a rarity even in the peak of summer.

Good stuff mate and you have definatey got me jealous of all of your kings. Looking at the solid ring the eye of your hook, you are obviously using circle hooks, what brand and model number as it doesn't look like one I am familiar with.

Catch ya Scott

Hey Scott,

Those are actually Owner 2/0 ringed Gorilla J hooks. I used to use circle hooks, but I have switched back to regular J hooks. I like the ring hooks because they seem to let the baits swim with more action.
