I've never heard of kingfish there, and I've never seen anybody fishing for them there, so I don't think so. Sometimes you can catch them near the pass if your lucky.

King Mackerel or actual Kingfish? We caught a few Kingfish on the bay side of Fort Pickens on Sun.

In the early 70's you could catch King Macs in the Destin Pass and inside the Destin bridge area if you just followed the schools of cigar minnows around. As the baitfish were over fished, the Kings moved on and now you never see large schools of bait in the Pass or Choctaw Bay.
