Kingfish Double Rig 2 Pack
Kingfish have exceptionally sharp, jagged teeth, but not so sharp as to be able to slice through fine wire. They have excellent eyesight and can be aware of wire that’s larger than #3. If you are targeting kingfish directly, you are going to want to go with Rite Angler Kingfish Rigs made with high-quality wire leaders.
THE KINGFISH RIG: Strong, durable 9175 O’Shaughnessy short shank hooks, 1/0 and 3/0. L774 treble hooks, #4, and #3. 2’ wire leader. Our treble hooks increase the chances of staying connected. The single hook is set in the nose of the fish and the treble hook is set around the tail. Kingfish and wahoo mainly “short strike” and bite the tail of their prey off so they cannot swim and then come back to finish the job.
- TECHNIQUE: Slow troll, anchor or drift these high-quality rigs
- CONVENIENCE: Pre-rigged, waiting for your hook and bait. This saves you time and hassle when headed out and hitting the water.
- TARGET SPECIES: Kingfish, Mackerel, Wahoo, and Shark
Kingfish, also known as king mackerel, like the Atlantic and the Gulf Coast regions. They may move closer to beaches during the summer months.
