Yesterday we had some massive Kings under the boat while we were drop fishing. We threw live cigar minnows, Menhaden, and other live baits at them with stinger rigs but couldnt get them to bite. Any other tips or ways to try and make these fish bite?
I have found that a cuda doesn't give a flip if the bait is slow or sits still. If the bait is screaming to get away that's when the cuda becomes interested. I have seen this with so many fish, the fast crazy bait gets the fish. When I was at the pier and I hooked a large LY and threw it out and if it lolly gagged around I would immediately reel it back and toss it to the side. When you put out a bait and it runs hard and keeps the line tight, THAT is the bait that gets hit!!
