I spoke to a chap today and he reckoned there had been 3 kingfish caught so far. Not so many Kahawai as last year. Wife got smoked by a big salmon today at the Waimak mouth Went straight over to the south side and then broke off at the zeddy. She cranked up the drag but she was only using a half blood knot so I showed her the blood knot. Fish came up so she probably gave it too much slack. Apparently felt like a piece of seaweed til it took off.
