Kingfish Reports

Anyone have a kingfish report off Carrabelle? Now should be about right.

Thanks,

EJ

    Unfortunately, they're most definitely here. My account is first hand from having to deal with one of those worthless fish.

    Went out looking Saturday, but found none. But you are right they should be here somewhere.

    Thanks for the replies. I like to catch them, and they smoke great.

    Some nice ones weighed in at the Rock the Dock tournament this weekend, including a 53-pounder.

    LOL! I concur. Hate seeing those slimy, mercury filled monsters show up at the end of the line.

    Saturdays weigh in showed what the kingfishing was like... 53 1st, 11 2nd, nada 3rd. The bite was much worse sunday. It was as bad as it gets. The water is about the worst I can remember seeing it this time of year. Don't let the leaderboard fool you. There were very few kings brought to the scales. Other than one rogue big girl and one boat that worked extremely hard to find a school of good fish... it was slim pickens. There isn't any bait around and neither are the fish. We also had high pressure and a full moon to go with the unseasonably cool and dirty water. A couple weeks of lighter winds and rain and no more "cold" nights and they should be here in force.

    Yep!

    Kings are around from the reports I have been getting.

    The water cleaned up and warmed up significantly over the past week. Night and day kingfishing from the prior weekend.

    Yes, thanks. We did pretty good on Friday. Iced three kings, lost maybe 10 more. Lots of fun. Will get out again as weather and family needs allow.
