I am going down to Seagrove Beach Oct 1st. Always rent a Yak and fish in Gulf. I havent tried trolling for Kings before. When using a duster rig do you use weighted (J-Duster) or not? When using diving plugs---Deep plugs, medium or shallow? Thanks for any suggestions--:)

Try all of the above till you find a pattern that works. My personal favorite is an unweighted pink/silver duster and live cigar minnow or northern mackerel. However, anything you can catch on a sabiki live should work.

My favorite lures are stretch 25s and X-Raps, both shallow and deep diving. Again, vary the depth until the fish tell you where they are.

Good luck,
Alex

I've caught at least ten times as many kings on the weighted dusters then the non weighted. I use to troll both weighted and none weighted at the same time and I caught far more kings on the weighted duster and ALL my mahi on the none weighted duster. Pink/pearl is my best producer and blue/chrome coming in second.
