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!
