We have a group heading down somewhere between gulf shores and panama city (not sure where yet) to do some kayak fishing. From years fishing the pier's I have always heard Mid September and October was great for kings and black fin tuna. We was in panama city this past weekend and the fishing was dead, didn't see any bait up anywhere and didn't catch a fish in 2 days in the gulf. We talked to a few guys that acted like the kings where mostly gone for the year. So my question is, are they gone? Do we need to focus on doing some inshore fishing? We thought we had this trip somewhat figured out but any help would be appreciated for sure.
