Our second day out fishing with Scotty & Jason from Greenwoods Sportfishing Adventures was from “Kingston Jetty ” on the Southern side of Norfolk Island. We headed out wide South East of Phillip Island until we hit the shelf and marked some solid shows, with my first drop of the morning resulting in this lovely 20Kg king!

Pulling these beasts up from 100-130 metres of water on 300-400 gram jigs sorts you out!
Check out the condition on these kings – you can see why they go so hard!
Another 20Kg Yellowtail Kingfish!
I haven’t caught kingfish this big in a loooong time – they are such awesome fish, and Norfolk Island has loads of them!
I managed a few more jumbo silver trevally as well !
Scotty even caught this nice snapper – the numbers around the island aren’t high, but they are always a welcome by-catch.
Another BIG trumpy !
I was keen to tick off a BIG Bar Cod this trip, and after dropping a few that felt like the target species, I was relieved to finally got this beast to the surface!
This is the video from our second EPIC day of fishing Norfolk Island with Scotty & Jason from Greenwoods Sportfishing Adventures – this time out from Kingston Pier
I certainly earned a beer this day, and the Norfolk Island Brewery has a great Pale Ale!
