3 Tips To Catch Kingfish This Summer [VIDEO]
Where To Find Kingfish
The most important factor when fishing for kings is putting yourself in the right spot.
You’ll need to find hard structure like wrecks, reefs, and even oil platforms.
Kingfish will stay close to this structure to find food.
You can find GPS coordinates by state to find wrecks and reefs here.
How To Troll For Kingfish
Slow trolling in circles around hard structure often provides a more consistent kingfish bite.
And by varying your speed while trolling, you can cover different water depths to find where the fish are feeding in the water column.
Best Rig For Kingfish
A triple stinger rig will give you the best chance at catching kingfish.
The third hook will increase your hook-up ratio and will help you land more fish.
Since kingfish are known for striking at the middle of your baits, having hooks down the body of your bait will allow the fish to get “stung” much more easily.
The One Thing You Must Have When Fishing For Kingfish
Make sure you have a gaff on board.
Most anglers may try to tail grab a kingfish but things can get a little dicey when the sharks come up to play.
It’s much safer for you and the fish to use a gaff.
You’ll want to aim right behind the gill plate to preserve the most meat and have better control of the fish.
If you’re new at trolling for kingfish you’ll want to know where to find them, what rigs to use, and make sure you have a gaff with you.
