Decided to head a bit north and have a quick fish for a king before the forecast southerly rose above 15 knots. On the water, in the dark, at 5.30am and found the livies relatively quickly. Loaded up with 8 in the Stealth built in self-reticulating livie tank (what an awesome feature). Trolled the edge of the reef but kept on getting hooked up to the pesky hammerheads so shifted location out to the point which was initially 'playable' but it didn't take too long for the expected southerly to pick up to around 15 knots by 9am. Got nailed by a couple more sharks. Eventually nailed a 900mm/10kg king which put up a nice scrap. Managed to get it up alongside the kayak without it getting taxed. Let it splosh around on the surface for a few seconds to make sure a 'large gentleman in a brown suit' hadn't followed it up - didn't want a repeat experience of having the leader wrapped around my hand and have the tax me hit right next to the yak. Stoked to have a good feed to take home. Stuck it out for another hour or so before calling it quits at around 10am. Back on the beach just before 10.30 and home before noon for a clean up and a nanna nap. Great morning out.
