The Southern Kingfish Association (SKA) was founded in 1991 and has emerged as America’s premier saltwater tournament trail. The king mackerel is relatively easy to catch, especially in school size, while the larger kings require skill and patience. Equally beneficial is their abundance, due to sound fisheries management and strong conservation practices among our anglers. King mackerel migrate along the eastern seaboard from Virginia to Florida and throughout the Gulf of Mexico from Florida to Texas. The SKA tournament trail follows this pattern.
