Got on the water around 7 am, it was a beautiful sunny day, didnt mark any fish so kept moving south west and started marking fish in around 170 fow, got the first hit around 10.30, it hit hard on the rod with the dipsy and the reel started screaming, it was fish on and the excitement began, I held the rod in one hand and tried to reel the second rod and downrigger up as to avoid any tangles during the fight, after a 25 - 30 minutes fight finally got the king to the boat and it was quite challanging to get it into the net as i was fishing alone and the fish was not done fighting yet. After almost losing my net, finally got the king safely into the boat and into the live well.

The second hit came about 40 minutes later , while I was changing lures on the downrigger rod thus avoiding the problem of getting the 2nd line out of the water and out of the way. It was a beautiful fiesty rainbow and didnt take long to get her in the boat compared to the king......as I decided to keep both the fish, it was time to head on home for the BBQ

Another satisfying day on the water packed with excitement
