Default What are best areas now for king mackerel?

I am taking two 10 year old boys offshore for the first time. Would like for them to catch some kings. I have not targeted kings in years. Any hot areas currently for kings?

This time of year everywhere. Float live baits around any structure mass bouys public wrecks. Can also troll the beach and around any wrecks.

most of the barges seem to be holding a few.

Hooked a big one last weekend trolling the beach for Spanish. Tail whipped it on the 3 run.

Pick a bouy with no one around it cause the 3 barges will be a parking lot. See Ryan&CodyD above for the rest.

Along beach is great right now as there's lots of bait along beach. Got a 22lber yesterday in 19' of water. May have a good shot at sails also if you target the bait pods early in morning along beach.

Please share more info on this. How do you target sails?
