Default King bite tomorow?

Last two trips didn't have the best luck with the King. Any of you had any smokers this year? I'm ready to hear the ziiiiiiiing! Tried all the right baits and rigs but nothing over 20lb's . Any ideas?

I know i am no pro by any stretch of imagination. But we always catch our biggest Kings on a gold christmas tree rig with a dead cig on it. Simple but works....Largest caught on this was about 35#

Oh, and this was just around the pass. If you are going out to the edge i wiould say live hardtails with a triple stinger rig.

Dan, Caught one last week, and one the week before, trolling one of those rainbow irradescent duster rigs with the three hooks and dead spanish sardine east of Destin pass 1/4 mile off shore in about 40' of water. Trolled from San Destin back west to the pass.
Are you doing the blue angels tomorrow ????

Caught a 50# and a couple pushing 40# off of wrecks in 90 to 120 feet of water this year and caught somewhere around 20 total. Freelining live threadfins and cigs with a cable leader and a 5/0 circle. Been chumming like crazy and putting the live ones back in the slick.

Caught these Wednesday 4 miles off Destin, Free lining Menhaden and Cigars. My 14 year old did a great job with the big one.
