"THEY'RE SKYIN' ALL OVER US!"
This was the theme on our boat this past Sunday.
As winter starts to wind down here in South Florida, we all still have sailfish on the brain. But this time, the Kings made themselves known in a big big way. It was one of those days... flat calm, super hot, the kite with a helium balloon was straight above the boat, and you couldn't help but feel like it was May. We had 10-15lb kings airing out on us all morning.
It was such a blast and really got our heads thinking about "Meat Season" which is quickly approaching. Now, we didn't run into any giants but we did mange a decent one, about 25lbs. We did hear of some nicer ones up and down the coast this past week, some up to 50lbs! At this point it's really only a matter of time before everyone starts pulling 40's over the rail.
If you're thinking about heading offshore this week, do yourself a favor and tip those Bullbuster Mono or Fluro Leaders with some wire. Use stinger rigs if you're fishing live bait. A lot of these fish are missing the bait and a stinger helps with that. We fished Gogs which seem to do well as always, but Pilchards and Herring are always a great choice this time of year.
Good luck and watch out for those teeth!

Getting Ready For A Kingfish Trip?
Smoker kings will not only smoke drag but they taste excellent on the smoker (see our article on the best kingfish recipes of the web). Make sure that you don't loose a king because you are using old mono. Order your monofilament fishing line here from Bullbuster.net and have it delivered directly to your doorstep!
Have The Kingfish Been Finicky Recently But You Know They Are There?
When the kingfish get finicky its often time to switch to flourocarbon. If you are fishing tournaments 90% of boats are fishing fluorocarbon in front of their wire leaders. If you aren't fishing fluorocarbon than you are at a disadvantage.
