About 2 weeks ago, over a week, I landed 8 kingfish, the lot where in the afternoon.
kingfish are pretty easy to get, its just a case of if you really want one, you have to set up properly. No throwing bait, just fish a couple of live baits, and work a good area..
Some times Ive left at 2am, just to get live baits, those days spending up to 14 hours trying to catch livebaits and about 2 hours chasing kingfish. The other day I about 4 over 4 hours, and lost them in 30 minutes, to birds and a scungy random cuta.
Chris, it's more the conditions, settled water, clean and plenty of baitfish around. Arvos are just as good as the mornings, so long as the conditions suit. Night time is a waste of time, unless you are at a wharf, with lights overhead attracting bait to the area, like the port. The livebait you use is really important, small kahawai would be best, YEM are pretty good, the bigger ones are better. Piper die fast, but are deadly when alive.
