Default Pass King fishing!

Hello fellow PFF'ers. I recently got my boaters license and I am on Spring Break now. On monday me and my buddy are going to drop the girls off at sand island and get some fishing done. I havent trolled for kings in a while. I was wondering if yall could help a brother out and give me some tips. Whats the best bet? Trolling ciggar minnows? Stretch 30's? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Maybe even get the girls in on some king actions. Thank yall in advance.

We use silver dusters with cigs and always run a deep ribbonfish with a yellow hair duster. Cant remember not catching our limit this time of year. You also might want to run a purple feather ballyho right down the middle long been some good near shore sailfish hook ups lately.

Hey Sunshine if your doing some slow trolling, try a chartruese 1-1 1/2oz bucktail jig with a good size treble stinger and just pin a cigar minnow on it. I used to use em all the time if we got off work early and just putting around the pass. Caught alot of Kings and bigger spanish on em. Also you can add a trolling weight and slow bounce the bottom for the grouper in shallower waters. I'm sure you probably already know but this might save someone a ticket by the "man". Make sure you check the lateral line on those big spanish so they're not juvy kings. Saw a guy get a $100 ticket for two juvy kings he thought were spanish. These two are easy because of the color, but sometimes the kings have the same spot pattern. http://forshorefishing.blogs.theledg...kerel-easy-id/
