individual fish dont generally stay in the same area, for the reasons mentioned above. however if you find a good spot that seems to be holding fish then chances are that the next time you go to that spot in a similar situation (ie time of year, time of day, water temp ect) that you will find kings there again. out of destin alot of the kingfishing is done over broken bottem and the South East rocks and its really very dependable. However with cold weather setting in the kings will likely be farther offshore. A run to the edge is the most likely spot, however dont over look little drop offs and shelves as you head out, especially if you can find a nice rip on the surface. double that if said rip happens to be 1-2 degrees warmer than the surrounding waters;) you can also increase your chances at a larger king by using a downrigger or some other method to get your bait down in the water, usually start halfway down and work down from there. And as the other posters said, if you want a big king use a big bait. lady fish, spanish makeral, bluefish are all good baits that usually arent to hard to come by this time of the year, and it seems that most of the blues and ladyfish survived the redtide just fine.
