I've read thatpeople are having good luck catching kings in the bay using live bait under balloons and free lining. Earlier this summer I was catching them in the gulf trolling a dusterwith adead cigar minnows on a downrigger. Would this work in the bay also? I was also wondering about stretch 25s. All I got last year at this time was bull reds. Will kings hit those in the bay now?

Thanks

if the kings are still in they'll hit them. the kings head south when the water temp dips below 70°F. we caught 2 last weekend a 18# and 30#. good luck.

We went yesterday and hooked up to one King. Wasnt able to turn him with the 704z. Of course he could have been a shark.But im pretty sure it was a King. We caught him on the majic bait. If i told you i would have to kill ya!!! LOL
