I thought I'd keep track of how we are fairing against the Kingfish this summer, this list includes everyone I know who has hooked a Kingfish and includes bustoffs and landed fish. So far the list is entirely in the Kingfish favour. If there are any mistakes let me know and I'll fix them up. Also Let me know if a fish you have hooked is not on the list. The list is confined to lure or fly caught/hooked fish only.

I’m sure there is a couple I have forgotten so let me know if you’ve hooked a fish that got away. Jayde has come the closest but the hooks on the Skitterbait straightened at the boat. Those lightweight hooks are not really designed for big kingfish so take it real easy next to the boat and don’t try to rush them.
