Default Kings...

Hey folks - when do the kings show up again?

I caught my first one out of a yak last year and need he feeling again.

Mid to late April is when they start showing up in decent numbers.

Ditto above. You may catch some this month but they rarely get going good until water temps are 70 and above

15-20# mono for all things king

Braid for kings in a yak is a disaster especially if your fishing out of a Hobie. That stuff gets in your Mirage drive and it is such a pain to get out.

no hobie problems for me, i plan on anchoring up and flatlining pinfish or using jigs, just wondered if there was a reason for 30 mono, when i fish with my uncle he uses 20 mono but i manage just fine with my 10pp against 40+ inch bull reds so i figured the average king will be manageable on the same rig from a yak.
