No more dreaming about catching kingfish! It's time to make that dream come true my fishing friend.
Join your friendly hosts Mandy Kupenga (from TV show Get Your Fish On & creator of FishingAdvisor.co.nz) and Tony Orton from Offshore Adventures on the learning adventure of a lifetime. This is an awesome way to learn how to catch kingfish, and learn heaps with plenty of practise out on the water (practice makes perfect!).
We'll cover off several technique for targeting kingfish including: the gear, live baiting, where to find the fish, reading your sounder, setting up a drift, different kingfish techniques and have a whole lot of fun along the way (see more below). Mandy & Tony will coach you every step of the way.
We stay at the Offshore Adventures Fishing Lodge in beautiful Mangawhai (1.5 hours north of Auckland).
Day 1 (evening only): "Gear & Setup" session: a couple of hours with Tony & Mandy at the fishing lodge learning how to set up kingfish gear, types of rods & reels, how to make rigs and tie knots, sounder basics. Casual and fun with a few coldies.
Day 2 (all day) : "Hookin' up and holdin' on": We'll load up on live bait then boost out to the legendary Mokohinau Islands and practice, practice, practice catching kingfish.

Some pretty stoked graduated from last summers Kingi School.
We cover a variety of popular techniques to catch kingfish (depending on the conditions). These include:
1. Trolling live bait - a really effective way to explore and hunt kingfish along shallow areas of reefs and coastline.
2. Deep dropping - dropping weighted baits down to the fish in deeper water (30 metres+).
3. Mechanical jigging - using metal jigs to raise and hook up on kingfish.
4. Top Water - if the conditions are right we may even have the opportunity to throw around a few stick baits, another exciting way to catch kingfish.
Prepare to have your arms stretched! Out on the water we'll take you through:
We cover off all the basics, so you can go out and catch your own kingfish. It's highly interactive and we encourage questions.
