The whisky kingfish

A fine ‘kingi’ drop that!

Rebuilding a boat is a big undertaking, and Dave and I can attest to that. We spent four long years working on our Haines Hunter V16, but the end result was worth it. It wasn’t just about the boat, it was about the bond of friendship and our shared love of fishing that kept us going.

So, when our friend Tom needed a hand with a project, we were more than happy to help out. And, as a thank you, he gave us a bottle of fine whisky with a condition: it couldn’t be opened until we caught a legal kingfish. And thus began our quest for the elusive ‘Whisky Kingfish’.

We went out on a few fishing trips together, but luck wasn’t on our side. Three failed attempts and no legal kingfish to show for it. But we didn’t let it discourage us. One evening after work, we decided to try jigging at a known kingfish spot and, finally, our persistence paid off. After a couple of hours of fruitless jigging, I managed to hook and land a 12kg beauty of a kingfish.

The moment we opened that bottle of whisky was a special one. It was a reminder of the determination and perseverance that led to our success. And the taste of that fine whisky, paired with the thrill of the catch, made for an unforgettable experience. The ‘Whisky Kingfish’ will always hold a special place in our memories.”
