April is prime time in Clearwater for targeting Kingfish. There are several tournaments targeting Kings throughout April, including the infamous “King of the Beach” with well over 700 boats entering this year. As far as charters, we target Kings by using live bait, this not only produces the most action but also a better chance to catch a trophy fish. Often schools of them will be close to the beaches, so a long run offshore is not necessary. A bonus while Kingfishing is the presence of Tripletail hanging around the stone crab trap bouys. Great eating and fun to target by sight casting.
