Michael a.k.a "Biggie", holding a 51-pound smoker king
Good day fishing fans!
Today we went hunting for the hard fighting, long running, "smoker" or jumbo kingfish.
The winds were variable from the north northwest, moving around to the north on occasion. Sky was overcast most of the day with the sun poking out only once in a while. Air temperature was bouncing from the 50's in the A.M., to the 60's during the middle of the day, then dropping when the sun got low in the sky.
All in all it was very pleasant on the water, only a 1-2 foot seas.
We started out catching some live bait. Once the wells were filled, we headed out to the deep blue sea.
There we drifted and anchored our way to some fast action fishing. The strange thing was it was all kings nothing else, although we did have a big battle with a mystery fish that got away before we could see it.
I think the most we waited was 20-minutes between bites. The fish all weighed between 17 to 51 pounds, and we had one fish that almost took all our 340 yards of line before it broke free.
Good fishing, good luck and God bless,
