Balloon Fishing for Kingfish in New Zealand

Here’s a recent pic provided by a customer in New Zealand using Balloon Fisher King balloon clips.  Recognize this monster fish? In New Zealand it’s called a kingfish.  In the US, it’s an amberjack (aka, “reef donkey” and for good reason…).  Balloon Fisher King provides 100% natural latex, biodegradable balloons in many sizes based on bait weight, but larger 9″ balloons are used as floats by many NZ anglers since the live bait used to target big kingfish are usually 4 to 6 lb “kahawai” and also mackerel which would easily pull a 5″ balloon under. Big baits for big fish!
