    Kingis

    Yip free dived tonight at the Glenndun.....bait in close... Kawhai in 10 ft of water ..then as I was hunting the weed line ,lay there breathing up saw flash on the edge of the vis and in they came a dozen of em.
    Sleek beautiful kingis had my heart in my mouth dropped down clicked off the safety picked out the biggest (they weren't that big) and waited for it to give me shot and ...... gone. Ghosted in ghosted out..

    A personal milestone for me as a free diver.

    Would like this to be a thread for all to share rod n reel or spear or camera. Post if you see em slay or miss em. Lets see your kingis

    Back out Sunday if weather plays ball.

    All the best Joe (aka stingray).

    Kings are a lot of fun, hard fighting and great eating!
    The big one went back to put the hurt down on someone else another day!

    That is a beauty fish that first one Matt2308.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    OK,
    Have to crush the barbs then. Last year we had divers heads poping up around us while we were trolling, (no flags or buoys).

    Makes me nervous towing 3 big rapalas with 2 sets of big arse hooks on each cause at 7 knots we are moving quite quick and accidently catching a diver w would be up setting for me would be worse for them.

    Hard to keep away from them when you don't know where the hell they are
