Launched from Takapuna at 0530 today heading straight for the channel markers.
First King busted half my flyline on the marker so swapped to my intermediate line.
Next King landed - 72cm - first kingi on fly for me!
Only one more follow on the markers from a +- 1m king, right to the boat. Then I headed for the workups off Rangitoto. Lots of birds working and lots of fish.
Switched to my 6wt in anticipation of catching kahawai, only to find out they are rat kings. Landed the first, one +- 50cm, then my knot parted on the next one. The 3rd one turned into a monter 57cm (to the fork of the tail) kahawai! Man it fought hard on my 6wt!
Then the other boats showed up and I called it a day. Home for breakfast by 0830. I will post in the kingis off marker boys thread about the tactics that worked.
