Decided to put in a proper effort for kingfish today. Loaded my Kayak with all my kingie gear and launched in search of a nice rock platform to fish from. Found a few but no suitable spot for landing… Eventually found a safe landing spot, and had a good trail of burley flowing, after a few minutes peaked over the rock I was behind and saw a decent Kahawai dart through the trail, a good sign.
That Kahawai returned 4-5 times over the next half hour and that was about it. The burley drifted nicely, but no fish were interested in it , after four hours I packed up quite disappointed.
Would try in the Sounds next, probably Waitangi day. Might do a overnighter. Let me know if anyone wants to join me. Plan to leave Blenheim late afternoon.
