Yellowtail Kingfish, scientific name the Seriola lalandi is a fish most anglers dream of catching.
There are many ways in targeting Kingfish from using a wide variety of baits to lures. Although debatable,
Kingfish can be one of the hardest fish to land, as it is commonly known to make a run to the rocks or anything sharp to bust you off as soon as you hookup.
Due to this, strong gear is an essential when chasing after this pelagic species.
Shimano offers a large range of suitable reels such as the larger Biomaster, Baitrunner, Saragosa and the Stella series to name a few. These spinning reels are perfect to throw around lures in attempting to hook up that Kingfish.
Some of the proven Shimano lures, which the Kingfish cannot resist, are the waxwing and Ocea Pencil Baits.
However, having the right reel and lure is only halfway in achieving the catch that will stay in your memory forever.
A decent rod is as important as a solid reel.
