Kingfish or king mackerel is a medium-sized fish with an entire body covered in tiny, hardly visible scales. It has olive color on the back, fading to silver with a rosy opalescent on the sides, gradually fainting to white on the belly. Kingfish favor squid, menhaden or other sardine-like fish. A Gulf of Mexico migratory group of kingfish ranges from the Texas coast in summer to the middle-east coast of Florida from November through March.
Cobia has a spindle-shaped dark brown body with a broad flattened head. Two darker brown horizontal bands on the flanks make it distinguishable among other species. Reaching in length up to 78 in. and weighing up to 172 lbs., cobia resembles a shark. It mainly feeds on crabs, squid and smaller fish. This very curious fish is not afraid of coming close to boats.
Dazzling body colors, broad golden flank and iridescent blue pectoral fin is what makes this fish look like no other. On average the mahi-mahi can grow up to 29 lbs, and swim as fast as 57.5 mph. This well-known carnivore feeds on flying fish, crabs, squid and other fish. The mahi-mahi is mostly found in the surface water and is in great demand for sport fishing.
Sailfish are mainly gray and blue in color. But the colorful dorsal fin also known as a sail is what this fish is mostly known for. One of the fastest water creatures, sailfish can swim at a speed of 47 mph. Forage fish and squid are sailfish’s favorite food.
The Red Drum, also known as the Redfish or Channel Bass, has a reddish overall coloration and one or more dark spots at the base of the tail. It feeds at the bottom on crustaceans and mollusks. It also takes small fish, especially mullet.
Snappers are active carnivores, feeding mainly on crustaceans such as shrimp, crayfish, and crabs. Some, however, are plankton-eaters. Snappers are of light red color, with more intense pigment on the back. These fish can reach up to 39 in. in length and weigh 60 to 80 lbs. The oldest reported snapper is over 100 years old.
The tarpon is a large thick-bodied fish generally silver in color other than its back, which can range from a dark green to grey. It has a large scoop shaped mouth and the last ray of its dorsal fin is greatly elongated. Its scales are large and thick like a coat of armor. The inside of their mouth is like a heavy grit of sandpaper that will wear threw your leader or tippet.
The wahoo’s elongated body is covered with small scales. Its sides are silvery, with a pattern of irregular vertical blue lines, while the back is a gradual blue. Its mouth is large with razor sharp teeth. The wahoo can weigh up to 183 lbs., and reach a length of up to 8 ft 2 in. A very good fighter on light to medium tackle, a wahoo is a highly valuable sport fishing catch.
