Kings out, tuna in!
Mark Gercovich | March 2015

Nick Murrell with some jig caught kingfish.

March is the last month to reliably be targeting the local yellowtail kingfish population. There have been some good captures of kingfish locally in January but weather conditions haven’t been too kind in allowing many windows of opportunity to get amongst them.
