    Default Kingfishing at NW Place

    My dad, brother and I went this past weekend for a last run at the kings. Sat was a no-go due to small craft advisory, but sunday with 2-3ft waves, and clear skies made it beautiful for kingfishing.
    We counted roughly 40 boats at its peak, most had kings on the end. We unfortunately had no live bait, so we used balyhoo with wedgies and brought in 7, released 4, and missed 7 due to the stinger hooks being too short.
    Largest was 25lbs, smallest was 9 lbs.
    From 7am - 11 am they were hot, after that it slowed down but they were still biting throughout the day.
    It was a great day out there and made it tough to leave.

    Does anyone have any info on Spring kingfishing, whether its a pretty decent run or not? We want to go and talked about it numerous times, but have yet to go in spring.

    We used to catch more fish on Tony Acetta spoons than anything else in the. There are smaller and fewer pogies to be had in the spring. We did catch some fish on ballyhoo with skirts as well. Dont expect the spring fish to be quite as large as the Fall smokers

    You can catch them on through the fall as they move out further. Yep can catch in the spring. Drone spoons, diving plugs etc. Again out towards 240 rock or Atlas then moving to 10s then NWPs.
