January 2012: YFTV ventures east to the rugged Victorian coast (Australia) to explore the Bass Strait for new kingfish opportunites. What they find is is truly remarkable, an untapped world class topwater gold mine. The day starts off with a humble 7kg kingfish on a stick bait, a feat in its own right (in local terms) but mayhem soon follows as stickbait after stickbait is monstered by massive schools of rampant surface feeding kings. The surface strikes are just crazy, like hand grenades exploding, and the action lasts for 8 hours straight. Featuring Winga, Matt Stewart, Dave Standing and Kevin Buhagiar. This is episode 1 of a 2 part special. Rods are TEREZ 80lb outfits armed with Stella 10,000SW reels and 65lb Power Pro Braid. Stickbaits are Moutoukenmaru and Shimano Ocea Pencil and various others. Dont miss part 1!
