52cm.. He took a slab of tailor meant for a Jew or Kingfish.. On 40lb so not much fight but did get airborne a few times.

Nice one mate. Congrats on ticking off another species.

Have caught a few, but a few months back I had one grab a blade while breaming on 4lb line on a 1-3kg noodle. Took 45 minutes to land.. couldn't turn its head.

Cheers,
PF

Another species ticked off CR, as you said much better sport on light tackle but if you're in a kingy spot you just can't take the risk. Some salmon go aerial, others slug it out down deep - I've had them picked for snapper at times.

Have sent you a message coat, let me know if you're keen for a paddle tomorrow.

Cool fish! We don't see them up this way too often but from what I have seen and read they are good fun to catch.
