Default King Mack questions

So what is the best month of the year for catching kings in our area ? Also best method ? I have ALWAYS ran parallel with the shore, anywhere from a few hundreds yards to a few thousand, yesterday we ran due south out of P.cola pass and slayed them, just running straight south, maybe a mile or two off shore. And whoever told me to troll a shorter line in my prop wash was DEAD ON, tried that yesterday and think it helped allot !

This year I have had better luck running straight south also, last year this time I killed them parallel to the beach. They have been hitting my stretch 30's hard this year and not a single bite on my duster and cig.

Anchor up and chum on some of the inshore wrecks. Fish live baits.

OR
Drift with live baits. Trolling produces mostly snakes. Be there at daylight with live hardtails or cigs on sevenstrand & hurt em.

It really depends on where the tide rip is located. Stay on the cleaner side of the rip (not that there's any clean water in close these days). Mass can hold macks & drifting in the area of #1 & #2 bouys can produce (I've hooked some sails in that area too). Make a run to some wrecks if the water around the mass / ship channel looks bad. I don't use any weight when freelining live baits ... let 'em swim & do their thing.
