Yellowtail Kingfish - the king of the sea

by Ron McBain

As I sit here and write this article, my mind goes back to a half hour ago, when one of our customers brought into the shop to show us a truly magnificent fish - a 20 kg Yellowtail Kingfish.

Hello everyone, I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself.

It has been an epic journey of learning and discovery and I am indebted to Mike Stevens for his help, support and patience.

Lake Dulverton 21/8/2013

My son, Alex & I took a slow trip to Launceston (for my niece's 21st celebration) on Saturday (17th Aug)  with intent to fish Brumby's Creek out of Cressy but stopped by Oatlands at Lake Dulverton. Its level was down but should fill up perhaps after the northern weekend rain.

I managed to land 2 reasonable rainbow from the lake.

1st  was 67.5cm length about 4.3kg - about {9 1/2 Lbs}  ( 4kg cleaned )
2nd  was about 2/3  size of first - within 20 minutes of the first !

We only spent about 3 hours there during the mid  very overcast morning.

So,  there are fish in that  weedy  hole ! These were "old'  very healthy stockies
Used a  small trout patterned hardbody lure - like a "Repala Spotted Dog" - soft plastics would probably do too.
Worked well !
Brumby's Creek  had fast flowing dirty water, fished without success. Surrounds were very muddy, as expected.
