On mine the bait will also be more a solid red and kings often seem to hang slightly above and to one side of the bait.

I always get the good feeling when I see the more broken sign starting to build off the back of the bait..

When I get a good group of kings they will be more separated and will be orange and show good arches or slashes.

All that said I have caught them over structure in clean water with nothing much showing on the sounder from time to time.
I wonder how far they come for a jig?

The best sign I ever saw was in 90m and it came up like mount Fuji almost all the way!
We pulled big snaps and kings on 300grm jigs and huge fish kept following them up over and over until we were basically stuffed.

With Our sounders , I have found the Kingi's to look very similar in appearance to the JRC screenshot of Capt Asparagus's. Maybe with more speckled Blue through the  shoal.As opposed to baitfish which have no Blue appearing. Sensitivity set to 85% or the black Squiggly Snapper sign.
 
I keep my depth range set manually to match our actual depth( autodepth is crap) and increase the sensitivity the deeper the  water gets....
 
And yep Better/Bigger  ones closer to the bottom I find.
 
I usually work only 20 30 m up from the bottom and then drop back down...again. mainly Cos I am a Lazy sod.Big%20smile

Buying a good brand sounder and a top transducer is the key, losing the bottom is just not an option in any form of the game, and I'm sure there are plenty of arguements but to be successful time and again it is an absolute must. My experience is that the big girls do come from nearer the bottom, however the entire school could be big girls and the jig/bait is just getting hit early. I don't often catch big kings amongst rats but have located bigger fish by sounding other areas which can be very close by.
Fish don't make mistakes

Finally had a chance ot get out on me own boat this weekend, out over the Cobra Rock area, and this is the sort of sign I am used to finding out there.... oh, and the gain is wound right down as well!

Stacks and stacks of kingies. We could see them everywhere under the boat. Jigs, SPs, they were climbing over everything. The big problem was trying to get the larger ones among the masses of rats. Best we could manage out of the scrum were only 20lbs max, but still took home enough to fill the smoker for the guys.

cheers, Stu.

The boat shop mounted mine too high as well. i had to take it back and get them to shift it to the other side as well. Pissed me off. It was loosing the bottom and skipping on the slightest chop. is sweet now though. It even said in the instructions that it had to be mounted as far below the hull as possible on craft cable of over 35 knots. At first the bottom of the tranny was bearly in line witht the bottom of the hull. Its now mounted on a nylon pad. the bracket should not extend below the bottom of the hull.
It IS possible to have good readings at all speeds. No compromise.

Mozz, Torsa and Jimi have their patch locked down with the use of their sounders and gps. This is after years of eperience. That screen represents some serious fun i can tell you! After being out with Torsa I've seen its possible to track fish and your jig and find spots that hold different fish like Snapper. It was an eye-opener for me. With all their success, they are still generous with sharing their knowledge and wisdom, whilst practising/preaching conservation in regard to their 'back yard'.
 
Thanks guys.  Thumbs%20Up
