you should bleed kings right after you catch them. As for now, you can still cook them, I would grill them. Soak them in buttermilk for a couple of hours, then wipe off the extra milk and put a thin coat of MAYO not miracle whip but real MAYO on the top and season to taste. You will not taste the mayo if you just put a thin layer, between the milk and Mayo you will kill the game taste.

Throw them away

I will be truthful here! they taste like **** and are extremely gamey. Do not waste your time. they are like duck and geese, everybody says they taste great when cooked correctly but that is not the truth.

I completly disagree. You just have to bleed them, then ball them. King balls are one of my favorite things to eat. Serve of a plate of king balls and anyone will be pleased. I wont eat them any other way.

My mother would cut them into steaks and then press out the little balls and grill them on the grill. I don't eat a lot of fish but I didn't think they were too bad so that must be an OK way to prepare them. Don't remember them tasting gamey. I'm not sure if they were bled or not when they were caught.

Good advice about bleeding them. This will help alot. IMHO kings are pretty good eating. As soon as I catch them I bleed them. I usually fillet them out and well marinate them in italian dressing and coat them a little with Chef Produmme (sp?) spices (Seafood magic). Then grill them over mesquite. Pretty good stuff!

to bleed kings.. once caught slice their tail and snap that bone.. and the blood will come pourin out.
Sorry I probably sound stupid but I haven't caught many kings.

Slice the tail all the way off and then snap which bone? The bone right above where you sliced?

I cut mine into small cubes soak in buttermilk then bread them and deep fry I have always liked the taste of kings. Another way is to stuff with a piece of jalapeno wrap in bacon and cook. Anything wrapped in bacon is good.
