Has anyone tried their luck at catching ribbon fish in the area or is this simply a FL trick? Any advise? :?

Born and raised in Wilmington. Fish out of Masonboro Inlet. Have simply fished with pogies for Kings and wanted to try my hand at ribbon fish. I am guessing you fish them dead?

No, you fish ribbon fish alive. The only tough part is getting all the hooks in them, you just have to be quick and careful! Joking, fish them dead on a downrigger on a ribbonfish rig(weighted head and 3-5 trebles). I end up catching more sharks than kings with them but if it is a king its usually a big one.

Banks channel, off the bridges, under the lights, strips of mullet, drift on top, let them swallow the hook, let them keep the hook, put on ice / brine mix quick, freeze individualy flat and straight.
You can see them flashing in the lights as they chase little minnows. Not sure when they start arriving.

Do not touch them at all If not completely necessary. Every where you touch them will turn them black ruins the whole point.Try fishing one in the middle of your spread get it under them by using a 2oz jighead. I have killed a many a king like that pisses em off they think the ribbbon fish is going to get a pogey.

GOLD HOOKs tipped with shrimp.

Dredge Hole, CPL intake, rocks at MSB and docks with plenty of light.

make sure you have a brine mixture heavily salted and plenty of leaders and hooks pre rigged.

Catch and into the brine in one motion. Cut the leader and go catch another. Light spinning tackle works best with crimped lead weights and light leader.

Let brine 24 hrs with plenty of ice. Remove and wrap singles in cling wrap. Then wrap in aluminum foil in groups of 5. Freeze laying flat. Once solid they can be stacked upright like pencils if you have a chest freezer.

They are actually more fun to catch than Kings.
