Kingfish

Trolling Off The Coast for King Mackerel

Thursday April 19, 2018

Kingfish are colored iridescent bluish green on their backs with silvery sides a streamlined body and tapered heads. There is no black color on front of dorsal fins and lateral line starts high and drops sharply below the second dorsal fin. Young kingfish often have yellow spots like those of the Spanish mackerel.

East Central Florida host some of the best King Mackerel fishing in the United States. Lagooner Fishing Guides prides itself in our kingfish charter fishing tactics with live bait in the summer and fall months. One of the most enjoyable angling opportunities in Florida, the king mackerel has a prestigious and renowned tournament circuit targeting this species. The SKF or Southern Kingfish Association holds at least one tournament in the Canaveral area because of the consistency of the fishery.

Kings are found NEARSHORE and OFFSHORE and occasionally taken from piers running into deeper water. During the summer months off Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach you can often find large (smoker) kingfish within a mile of the beach and just beyond the breakers. Most of the time kingfish can be caught along the ridges and wrecks offshore of Florida's East Coast.

Remarks

Kings are schooling fish that migrate fom south Florida waters in winter to more northerly waters in spring. Gulf population thought to be separate from Atlantic population, with considerable mixing in winter from Cape Canaveral past Key West. Kingfish spawns in midsummer OFFSHORE and feeds on small fish and squid.

Fishing Forecast

April - 2018 Fishing Forecast

April of 2018 should be a great spring for fishing in both inshore and offshore coastal waters of Central Florida. Look to the Mosquito Lagoon and Banana Rivers to produce redfish and sea trout consistently and then look toward the ocean and depending on the water temps, clear skies and wind the cobia will be on their way north and migrating past Canaveral towards their northern grounds on the mid-Atlantic seaboard. Central Florida's weather during the spring is usually no less than spectacular as the college spring breakers are winding up the end of their vacation and heading back to campus to finish up before summer break. Daytona Beach host several spring events from NASCAR Races, Bike Week and Spring Break activities while Cocoa Beach and it's Space Coast offer a much less crowded alternative for vacationers to seek a more secluded and restful Holiday. The temperatures are rising and the fishing should be heating up too in East Central Florida's Cocoa Beach.

Review / Trip Advisor

Inshore and Offshore Charter Fishing near Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.

Great guide and lots of fun!!! - My wife and I have been fishing with Capt. Richard and Capt Gina for years. We have been out many times with them and always have a great time and catch fish. We love going to go to eat with them at a local place that will cook the fish we catch. They are super people and we try to get with them annually. Give them a try and you will be glad you did.
