Having a fancy for all things brutal and just moved to Jervis bay...decided to try for those kingies out the front...still new to the area so took me a while to find were the slimies hang out...but after a while managed two..not wanting to waste time and wanting to get out around the cliffs..rigged up....boom....of it goes....easily 50 m line gone....ping off...reefed.. Eeeer....more drag needed...next time ...rig up again....few strokes of paddle....off she goes...reefed again....p*ssed of now...no bait left...bugger it paddle 10 clicks back in....

Sunday...can't be outwitted again

It sounds weird to say I hope you find a smaller one next time, but that really is the case with kingfish and kayaks. :lol:

Also 10 km is a massive paddle, if you’re fishing pt perpendicular launch at Murray’s beach or honeymoon bay they’re only 3-4 km, otherwise currarong is only a 2-3 km paddle to kingfish spots.
