Cool still looking for fist king

Went out this morning at sun-up to troll for kings along beach. Trolled back and forth about a mile east and west of pens pier for 2 hrs. Caught 8 nice spanish and 5 bonito. Was trolling frozen cigs on white/pearl duster. Most fish were caught on yozuri rattling vibe (my favorite spanish lure). only 2 hits on duster- one big spanish and a missed hook-up. Any tips on set-up or location is greatly needed. Also anyone looking for partner to go out with send me a pm.

Something I learned....make sure your stinger hook is matched to the length of the bait fish. I trolled this afternoon looking for a king and missed 2 strikes. Baits severed and the stinger left dangling. I've made some rigs and left the stinger unattached until I can measure it up to the bait. When you do deploy, troll SLOW, about 1.5 mph. Today I trolled a zig zag between the sand bars until I found the fish. Took about 20 mins. I was unprepared though and only had 2 baits and one rig. Should have been a better day. BTW don't get in a rush when the fish takes the bait, let him get it in his mouth and start swimming before you engage the drag.... another mistake I made today.
