Thats a very large Kingfish IME.   Largest we've gotten as 15" and that looked really big.  

 

Any pics?  Did they gain girth proportionately?

Haha Thanks :agree: I’m trying. Honestly wasn’t planning to do any bait fishing but got notice of a hot porgy bite and took advantage. Source was blowing smoke it was more of a king bite porgies were all small 4-7”

Yikers... 5 fish yielded 11 nuggets...

 

Suppose there is not much meat on them?

 

Also, some of those nuggets look like hearts... I think I'm falling in love .. LOL

I suspect there were more nuggets than are shown there.

 

I love catching kingfish from the beach. They could be all over the place, but you will not know they are there unless you specifically target them with small hooks and small bait.  Fresh clam is ideal.

you're right. nuggets shown worth one fish.
