My buddy in Beaumont uses lots of big spoons, he tosses them all day with 20 pound tackle. I think the company is in Denver. Possibly Acme company. I'll send him email on it...

In the 90's we tried to go after the state record on 2lbs mono. Crazy fun when the line did not break. The boat Capt. is fighting the fish more than the angler at times. We were running a 31' Tiara and basically full on backing down on the kings with water rushing in filling the cockpit. We went through a lot of gear with all the line breaks at the strike.

12-15 lb mono isn't a bad choice for kings anytime as you can't put that much drag on a king and hope to not rip the hooks from him mouth. good luck with your light tackle. Kings are one of the best light tackle targets ever!

Here in Panama City Florida our main weapon for kings on the pier is a 7-9' 12-25lb rod. We use reels spooled up with at least 200 yards of 15lb pound Ande Backcountry. I personally use a Penn 705z but any reel that can hold at least 200 yards of 15lb will do. My leader is 18" of singlestrand Malin at 28lb test with a 75lb swivel. A #2 4x treble with a live cigar minnow, herring, menhaden, threadfin, hardtail etc. Fish around the bait pods off of the beach, and you can get it done.
