Kingfish

Trolling For Kingfish Offshore

Friday August 18, 2017

Kingfish are colored iridescent bluish green on their backs with silvery sides a streamlined body and tapered heads. There is no black color on front of dorsal fins and lateral line starts high and drops sharply below the second dorsal fin. Young kingfish often have yellow spots like those of the Spanish mackerel.

East Central Florida host some of the best King Mackerel fishing in the United States. Lagooner Fishing Guides prides itself in our kingfish charter fishing tactics with live bait in the summer and fall months. One of the most enjoyable angling opportunities in Florida, the king mackerel has a prestigious and renowned tournament circuit targeting this species. The SKF or Southern Kingfish Association holds at least one tournament in the Canaveral area because of the consistency of the fishery.

Kings are found NEARSHORE and OFFSHORE and occasionally taken from piers running into deeper water. During the summer months off Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach you can often find large (smoker) kingfish within a mile of the beach and just beyond the breakers. Most of the time kingfish can be caught along the ridges and wrecks offshore of Florida's East Coast.

Remarks

Kings are schooling fish that migrate fom south Florida waters in winter to more northerly waters in spring. Gulf population thought to be separate from Atlantic population, with considerable mixing in winter from Cape Canaveral past Key West. Kingfish spawns in midsummer OFFSHORE and feeds on small fish and squid.
