King Fish

King Fish Deep Sea Sport Fishing Charter
King fish are a frequent catch and are second in the mackerel family to wahoo. They are a schooling fish and can eat up baits in a hurry. The larger ones, in the 25 pound plus range, are known as “smokers” due to their strong initial runs when hooked. They are somewhat similar to the wahoo in shape and feeding habits, since they often attack from beneath, and are also known to skyrocket. When live bait fishing for kings, a second hook called a stinger is attached to the tail area of the bait in an attempt to prevent bite offs. Kings have excellent eyesight and often bite just behind the stinger hook. Kings are considered good eating and are especially tasty when smoked.
