Some good king from Fitzroy Q

Post by ronje » Sat Apr 18, 2020 12:09 pm

Last couple of days apparently.

Knew that the big ones were back but had a few things to attend to.

Will go threadfin fishing Mon, Tue and Wed.

This time I'll take a local paper for the comp. Forgot it last time.

The 147cm one wasn't the biggest. Was told that the smallest one (in town reach) was 120cm.

Solid fish there. I tried vibing a 6m -12m set of ledges for 4 hrs today and had a live mullet back a bit as a backup plan on a 70lb handline all for zip .....was a few that went past on the bottom but no takers today.
Get out there and in amongst it :)

They're good fish alright.

Most fishos here use spinning rods/reels 'cos of the extra line needed. I've been nearly spooled twice on a baitcaster that I thought had enough line.

I don't like spinning gear much as I can't cast it like a b'caster. But it works on big king.

Have just got a Quatum 8.1: 1 gear ratio baitcaster with 20 lb drag to try out.

Has a bigger spool than most so can hold a lot more line. I managed to fit 190 metres of 30 lb braid on it compared to the other b/caster reels I've got for about 100m of 30 lb. Feel a bit more confident so will try it out Tues/Wed.


Geez, Flicken. Hard to understand that a live mullet didn't get a king. Live mullet better for king than a big live prawn, I reckon.

Was 152 not 154 AND to the tail tip.

Probably 130 or so to the fork.

That's what Gerry and I are looking for in the comp.

They were there in their hundreds just as the wind started a few weeks ago and chased the prawns away. Gerry got a couple before he'd signed up to the comp properly.

Anyway, the prawns are back now so bigger king won't be far behind.
