Mattski getting worked by the Kingfish of the Umzimkulu

Mattski getting worked by the Kingfish of the Umzimkulu KZN, South Africa. We don’t even take photos of the grunter and kob we catch at the jetty anymore.

Clean water

It’s March and the early dry season conditions that we are experiencing look to be holding (although it’s raining as I write this!?). The water has been as clear as it ever gets and our cameras have been rolling. We are mainly filming action in the shallows. Kingfish swim incredibly fast and therefore are challenging to get on tape.

Insta 360

But Mattski’s Insta 360 does a fantastic job of documenting the action from up top of the water. This camera captures everything that happens all around you. And you choose the angle during processing?! This thumps out an editable movie file. But you need never edit?! It’s always just right.

Enjoy the picture show…

More Kingfish coming up

This was the first blacktip kingfish Matt got for the weekend. He had lost two before this little guy.

Then he hooked a bomber! At 3.2kgs, this fish put on a spectacular show for the guests staying and fishing here at the Umzimkulu Marina. They lined the bank and cheered Matt on. He tussled with this trophy fish for nearly ten whole minutes.

Blacktip Kingfish are tough as rubber. They release perfectly every time. It does say a lot for you as a gentleman if you fish for these fish with a single single. Rather than a treble. Or even two. Trebles damage fish. Sometimes beyond repair. This is not acceptable in an estuary.
