In this article I will be covering king fishing in Tampa Bay.
There a few tactics on how to catch these fish, the first one is trolling blue runners or ladyfish, live sardines with a color skirt can also work. Drift fishing is another method that will produce fish.
The area I like to fish for these guys is around the skyway and the G-cut. The G-cut seems to produce big fish.
As far as the rod and reel setup, I use a heavy spinning setup; 20 pound mono will do the trick. If you’re fishing for kings, don’t forget to pick up some stinger rigs form Mitches Bait & Tackle to prevent cutoffs.
We caught one early season fish this year, the client caught it on a live threadfin herring on a flat line over a reef in the bay.
Obviously bait is important no matter what species that you are targeting. Because of this reason, I want to talk about what I feel is the best bait net that money can. If you’re looking for the best net on the market you need to check out Barracuda Cast Nets.
Once you throw it you will get rid of all your other nets, pancakes every time! The net comes with a lifetime guarantee and comes with a full size bucket. I would recommend this net to anyone. You can buy them at www.barracudatackle.com.
What makes our charter service unique is that we cater to disabled veterans and wheel chair bound clients! Our boat is able to accommodate wheelchairs and is ADA compliant. IF YOU’RE A DISABLED VETERAN YOUR TRIP IS FREE! This is our way we give back to our veterans.
