Its a little earlier for kings in the bay, after a couple good cold fronts is best. Big live menhaden and dead ribbon fish is the key. I fish pretty hard for kings in the fall. There are some big smokers in the bay. I've seen several fish caught over 40 lbs in the past. I usually fish from 3 mile bridge to the port of pcola. I have a 48 gallon live well I put in the back of my truck and get all the menhaden I need out of Texar. You will get alot of big spanish this time of year on menhaden bigger than your hand. My biggest was just over 9 lbs weighed at gbb&t. Theres also plenty of jacks, tarpon and bull reds for bycatch!

Give it about 2 more weeks and through the end of November, give or take. Labor day is the unofficial start. With the spanish moving deep into the bay, the kings are right behind them.

Would this be the same for the Choctawhatchee bay?

I honestly don't know, I have never fished Perdido Bay nor have I ever heard of kings there. I'm not sure if its deep enough for kings? Escambia bay is a much better spot to target them. Maybe someone more familiar with perdido bay will chime in. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I'd have to say "I don't know", too. They've been coming into P'cola bay forever now.

Live menhaden. You'll have to catch them around Bayou Texar pre-dawn. Try to get your lines set up by 6am. Bite dies off about mid day.
