hey guys. Just able to go offshore starting this year. I have 4ea setups that will be good for kings. Other than slow trolling live bait for them, what else can i do? Drone spoons on planers or trolling weights? I've been seeing "skirts' etc like on BWC's website. Any recommendations? thanks

I had lots of luck with cigar minnows and yozuri lures last year. The dead cigar minnows were attached to pirate plugs and dead bait rigs from blue water candy. super simple, and loads of fun !

Live does work good on kings if you are fishing near the beach. But you will catch more king in the 20 to 30 miles area with the pirate plug and cigar minnows.

1 oz Pirate Plus are the only way to go... In Pink or Green.

Pirate Plus work best trolled at 2.5 to 3.5 knots. They will not spin because there is a Hook Lock made in the head to lock the hook so the Cigar Minnow will not spin.

They are a killer on Mahi and Wahoo too.

Funny, I just ordered 8 lures from each of these people for my first year of off shore fishing. Hope that they work as good as I hear.

Are the frozen cigar minnows that most local places sell the ones to get? I know fresh would be better but other than catching them on sabiki rigs , are there any other options?

Yes the popsicles the frozen cigar minnows work the bet with dead bait rigs. Live cigar minnows are king fish candy....

A small barrel swivel to haywire twist with about 4 to 5 feet of #4 wire. Donít forget ballyhoo as a back up. When the bite is on in the fall I swear they would hit a hotdog.

Especially with hi vis I would use fluoro about 20 or 30 feet. I don't like hivis on downriggers. I think if I can see it that possibly the fish can too. I use quarto fluoro HiSeas. Good luck!!
