There is always a very good chance that we will catch kingfish on our Islamorada fishing charters, regardless of the length of charter that you book. Catching kingfish is a great option because they are caught in abundance fairly close to shore, which makes them a perfect target for our shorter fishing charters in Islamorada.
Kingfish are absolutely exhilarating because they are incredibly fast, rivalling the speed of wahoo. Our Islamorada fishing charters catch kingfish while trolling both live and frozen bait. These amazing fish are extremely intelligent and need to be deceived effectively. They are very aware of the way their natural prey swims underwater. This is why rigging and using the correct bait and tackle is very important as these fish are known to bite off the tail ends of your bait. Our Islamorada fishing captains and crews have been fishing for kingfish throughout their lives and have mastered the skills required. Every person onboard will have the advantage of their expert knowledge and experience.
Kingfish are also called King Mackerel because they belong to the mackerel family. These fish range in size between small and medium and they typically weigh anything from 5lbs to 30lbs. Silver in color, kingfish have extremely scaly bodies and migrate to Islamorada during the summertime.
The locals of Islamorada do not usually dine on kingfish, even though they are edible. The flesh of the kingfish is far too oily for most tastes but there are many people who consider kingfish to be absolutely delicious. Opinions are divided and you will need to taste them for yourself.
