Default Kings Under the Boat Drop Fishing?

Yesterday we had some massive Kings under the boat while we were drop fishing. We threw live cigar minnows, Menhaden, and other live baits at them with stinger rigs but couldnt get them to bite. Any other tips or ways to try and make these fish bite?

Are you sure they weren't Barracudas? They can sort of look alike under water.

We usually have Cudas under the boat this time of year. It is funny to watch them, they fart allot. I kid you not.

If you were in deepish water, wahoo is a possibility, but probably cudas.

Yeah Cudas are frustrating. You have to go light line and light leader with a trace of wire. And a smallish live bait. Pinfish work pretty good.

Kings will hit just about any live or dead bait if they are around.

97% of the time, those long fish are cudas. 2.9% of the time, they are kings. 0.1% wahoo.


Run a piece of wire though a section of fuel line and put a hook on the end. Cast it out and see what happens

Don't forget to crank it back as fast as you can.
