Trolling for Kingies

Yellowtail Kingfish (Scientific name - Seriola lalandi), Kingys, Kings, Hoodlums, Bandits or "Rat Kings" are a strong, exciting gamefish that strike savagely at a wide range of lures, live baits and dead or cut fish fillets. Victorian Yellowtail Kingfish reports right here.

Weell the plan is to launch tomorrow morning at Mornington.

Been busy adding 60lb leader to the trolling rods with braid. So we will see what happens. To be honest I am not expecting much, it is more an exercise to practise. We use to troll for trout and murray cod all the time.

So it is a matter of re rigging and having a go. Even if the kingies are not present, it would be nice to get some salmon action.

But then maybe a squid or two might save the day.
