Success but not the right kind.

Post by DougieK » Wed Jan 09, 2019 3:17 pm

Had a great session on a remote Prom ledge fishing for Kings. Using a squid strip under a float and spinning with stick baits while I wait I've picked up a PB salmon. Still no VIC kings yet this season but the search continues.

Big fish went 67cm and 3.6kg and inhaled a nomad Madscad in pilchard pattern. The other on one of the float baits.

I'm happy to discuss any aspect of the tactics other than the exact location.

If nothing easy is worthwhile, LBG in Victoria is the most worthwhile thing of all time.

You need to throw bigger stickbaits. The kings are mixed in with those big salmon schools :a_goodjob:
