King Mackerel (Kingfish)
Summary

Kings were on fire again this morning. Baited (sabiki’d) with cigar minnows and scaled sardines and moved out to the 9 mile artificial reef area. We started fishing at about 8 and had caught 14 kings buy 1015, keeping 8 good ones and releasing the rest (most were of legal size) as well as 4 bonita and loosing a few fish to sharks and ‘cuda’s. They (the kings) were eating it out of my hand as I was letting the line out. This is how it supposed to be. The ride out was a little sloppy but well worth it and it calmed down for the ride in. New electronics (Garmin 54) working fine. See you on the pond. Capt. Guy
