Dear Captain “ When do the Kingfish Start Running in the Clearwater Area for the Fall? 

Hi Mr. Cafferata,

They are catching some Kingfish right now at some offshore reefs, even though the water temperatures are still too hot for the big Kingfish run. The general migration of Kingfish will come when the water temperatures drop into the mid-seventy degree range.

You’ll hear many anglers say the ideal temperature is 72 degrees at the height of the migration. Read more…
