Just back from a diving trip to the Poor Knights. I've put a few clips of the highlights together. I think the last clip will be of most interest to anglers!

thanks. the kingfish were at 30 metres. they were very excitable, almost swimming in to me. i had a metal clip on my equipment which drove them nuts when i "pinged" it!

not sure if you can tell from the video, but all of those fish were well over a metre in length :rock:

I've got a spear fishing mate who likes to point his finger at the screen like a gun when he watches clips like that and say " bam". Lol

Nice footage

Glad to see you are putting that Hero3 to good use. Great vid. Those kings must have been running into you.

Been a while since I have dived the Poor Knights.
