Isn't Kingfish also called Wahoo? If so, I don't think they are strong or oily at all. I have heard others echo your comments Gord, and often think we are talking about different fish using the same name.

Wahoo is sometimes called kingfish but most commonly the king mackeral is known as kingfish.

From Wikepedia:
The Wahoo may be distinguished from the related King mackerel by a fold of skin which covers the mandible when its mouth is closed. In contrast, the mandible of the King mackerel is always visible as is also the case for Spanish and Cero mackerels. Their teeth are similar to those of King mackerel, but shorter and more closely set together.
The flesh of the Wahoo is delicate and white and regarded as very good in quality. This has created some demand for the wahoo as a premium priced commercial food fish. However, because of its solitary lifestyle, it is taken commercially only as a bycatch in the long-line fishery for Tuna and Dolphin. Wherever found, it is a prized sport fishing catch. Not always catchable, but otherwise it can be very delicious.

Here in Lake Superior we fish for Lake Trout and Salmon, which except for early in the season go quite deep so we use downriggers to fish at depths anywhere from 50-150 feet. It seems that most of the techniques described here involve trolling on the suface. Is it not necessary to troll at any great depth or would you have better luck if you did? I am wondering if a downrigger is a worthwhile piece of gear for saltwater cruising or should I leave it home? I don't want to catch any "trophy" fish just something to eat now and again.

A down rigger is a nice addition. I will also rig with a trolling lead to get the below the surface.

I freedive and scuba spearfish, And have a post up regarding fishying up my cruising boat alot.
REad 'The Cruiser Handbook of Fishing' Scott and Wendy Bannerot.

I need a good Aluminum fabricator. All the things like arch and bimini, solar and wind, out and downriggers, windvane protection, back porch, tank racks, hookah and scuba compressor, fillet table, live bait tank...etc.
Can all be attended to in the design of ONE structure.
My boat is fiberglass but I would be willing to bolt alot of aluminum to it.
I think stainless is too heavy for the amout of structure involved.
Sorry to hijack thread but
DOES ANYONE know a aluminum tube fabricator that could take on this project?

In OZ the kingfish and spaniard are 2 different things

Here is a pic of a Black kingy I caught off Cape Capricorn and a Spanish makeral from just off of 1770

oops sorry, wahoo, they are the long skinny things in the last 2 pics and yellowfin tuna are the fat bullets (some with shark damage) Caught on the way to Vanuatu

Thanks to stevensc for the Kingfish recipe.

salting/drying fish

Hi fisherfolk,
Do any of you salt/dry your fish ie make fish jerky? If so would you share your salting recipe and which fish are suitable.
Many thanks,
Clyde

If I remember right almost any fish will be fine for drying. Already get too much salt.

This was according to the Bannerots in their book, Cruisers Handbook of Fishing. It sells for under $20 US, and it is really a bargain. I would recommend it highly, and particularly to newbies. It will save you tons of money on fishing gear.
