Hi Guys, just back from a Kingi Trip, did not manage to get any on a fly but we did get 40+ on Livebait and jigs. Fantastic fish, can't wait to try to get one to eat a fly, might get a chance at the begining of December, will let you know how I go.
Here are a couple of pics.

All the best.

Mike,

That looks like some fishing trip!
Too bad you didn't get any of these on the fly. That would have been some catch!

Martin

Hi Martin, yes they would be an absolute blast on a fly rod, but we were getting these fish at about 30 to 40 metres down on Live bait and high speed jigs!
They do come in to some shallow water harbours in the summer and I hope to get one this summer on the fly. I do however hope it is not a big one, these fish realy can deal to you! They fight very hard and dirty, if there is a rock or pole anywhere near by they head straight for it at warp speed and bust you off.
I will let you all know if I manage one on the fly.
All the best.
Mike.
