    Mean, what you getting, I've got a F14 at the moment will likely be ordering a 535 this year. Looks like they have a heap on at the moment

    That will be a mean machine. I love my wee frew. Been a good year for kingis, out at white the other day and saw a good half a dozen round the 30keg size.

    Yeah I have got then within a k quite a few times but find myself around 10k off usually, been really rough last few days, very good bite today, speaking of which, saw one swimming around with a well chewed up tail

    Awesome.

    Trolling, jigging, swimming live baits - what's the best way to target them here?

    Must give it a go.

    You can get them trolling but I prefer casting stick baits at them, had a few chasing high speed jigs today but water is too shallow to be able to really work them properly
    Wildman and Hayden C like this.
