Got a phone call a while back from Toby Kemp asking if we should go for a fish. Little did I know what he had in mind. We spooled up a Avet SXJ 5.3 with 2kg and set out to target kingfish. We spent the afternoon trying to hook up, and when we finally did, what a buzz. I had the fish on for just over a hour before frustration set in. I lifted a little to much and lost the fish. But here is some footage of the battle. Will try again soon though.

Nice. 2kg is an art form! I've been trying for 3 years for a wahoo WR on 2kg.

What kind of rod are you using

Nice work Cam. Needs a lot of patience and a fair old dollop of luck  - good luck on your next attempt.
