Default Need advice on fishing for kings

I am going out Friday and going to try and troll for kings for the first time. Besides a duster rig what other sure fire ways can I land kings?

Stretch 25s, planer boards or down rigger if u have one, speed between 5-7 mph, bump down to 4mph every once and while and speed back up

Ok now this might sound ignorant but where is the turning basin in the bay?

We catch most of ours on natural baits drifting. Haven't been in a few weeks- not since the rain flushed all that fresh water into the gulf. Are they moving much close to shore now? I really need to get my wife hooked up with one (everyone else I've taken out has hooked one).

On that how far out should I go? I was planning on going to the last buoy out of the pass and head west. Is that a good plan or no?

That's as good a plan as any or just anchor up just outside the pass and freeline if you want to save some gas. They were back at it last Saturday Mike and we haven't had rain since so it should be on.

Sounds like a winner- thought about trying to get out Sat, might need to hook the wife up on one...

Should I even use the duster rig while freelining? Or just put some live bait out? I always like gas saving ideas with my gas hog.
