King Mackerel Fishing Trips in Biloxi, Mississippi

King mackerel, also known as kingfish, king fish, or cavalla, is a highly sought-after species of migratory game fish.  Recreational anglers love them for their impressive fighting spirit and powerful drive.  The average adult king mackerel is large enough and strong enough to give any angler a thrilling day on the water.  Kingfish is a challenging catch that offers a great fishing experience!  

King mackerel are aggressive feeders and will hit nearly anything, including live bait, dead bait, and plastic lures—but they have the sharp teeth of a predator, meaning they can easily shred your line.  Fortunately, there are ways around that, and it sure makes hooking them an exciting experience!  If you’re a novice angler or simply unfamiliar with techniques for catching king fish, that’s not a problem:  We’ll gladly teach you what you need to know, and we provide all necessary bait, tackle, and license so you can just relax and focus on the fishing.  

The king mackerel is an oily fish, thanks to its higher fat content.  It has a firm texture that flakes well.  King mackerel doesn’t have a strongly fishy flavor, but neither is it especially mildly flavored.  Many people prefer to pre-soak it, then prepare it with a flavorful marinade.  Try it with Italian salad dressing or a citrusy burst of lemon—or go for a bold, savory Cajun flavoring to give it a little extra kick.  It’s suited to a wide range of cooking methods, including smoking, baking, grilling, frying, and more.

Catch Some Cobia on Your Trip, Too!

Here’s something you might not have known:  The fishing techniques you use to target king mackerel are actually very similar to what you’d do if you were angling for cobia.  In fact, it’s very common that you’ll attract some cobia during your excursion—and that’s great!  Cobia is a safe, healthy fish for eating, with a buttery, slightly sweet flavor and a firm texture.  It’s excellent fried or grilled—or you can even try it raw.  Because cobia tend to be solitary, the species doesn’t lend itself well to commercial fishing, which means it’s less frequently encountered in restaurants and stores.  Catching your own delicious cobia on your deep sea fishing trip gives you a chance to try something a little different for yet another fun and unique experience to share with your friends and family.
