Thanks Kev, they are about 10% larger than actual size in this pic, 70mm from tip to end of tail, nice and fat, yummy colours and can be used freshwater or saltwater (unscented).
I have another colour too, Golden Shiner, see below:

Name / Username of Angler: Pope
Fish Type: Kingi
Length: not measured but weighed 18lb
Date/Time of Capture: 18 August / 12.30pm
Location of Capture: Gt Barrier Island
Type of Lure/Bait used: 4" grub pepper prawn
Comments: Soft baiting for snapper over 40m sandy bottom when I got a hit on my backup soft bait setup. I say backup as it was on its last outing before retirement as the rod had been prematurely shortened in an auto accident, the anti-reverse was being held together by a strategically placed toothpick and it was spooled with second hand 10lb braid when I upgraded my prime setup. Stoked to land PB kingi and it capped off another superb Gt Barrier trip. Backup setup performed so well under pressure that it has been given a stay of execution.

I'm still smiling Dave and smoked up half the kingi so have a few friends with smiles as well. Thanks for the big snapper head and my mates kids said the head alone was bigger than any fish he had caught.
