How’d you go on the Kingies this season?

Post by PhilN » Sun Apr 07, 2019 10:07 pm

I found it really tough this year. Ended up with 4 good sized ones, one over a metre, all on jigs (which is probably more to do with the fact it’s my favourite method). But those 4 came from many many trips and countless hours.
Each year has been better and better and last year was a cracker. Any theories on why it was way down this year...(or it was just me?)

Pro isn’t professional you won’t get paid. It’s promotional good if you are happy to wear his products promote his business etc.
