IMO King are not even close to the best eating fish. Fun to catch no doubt. If your tied up around a rig with baitfish like hardtail, catch one and put him live on a balloon rig way behind the boat. A big “rogue” king may hit him.

Fight, have fun and if your heart desires, land him and keep. But lot of dark meat. Dip, boiled meat, etc is decent but take the middle blood line out. Can cut in cross sections and thumb the better part of meat out of each quarter.

But I digress, to each their own on that everyone’s individual deal..
