    Default whitez!

    All the kings George landed were white, so the ones he lost must have been red?

    Please don't get me wrong because I appreciate the pictures of your fish, but shouldn't they be posted under "Fishing Pics" instead of being posted in a forum that's supposed to be for people asking questions about AK saltwater fishing? If I posted pics of the fish I caught I'd be doing it 6 or 7 times a week at times. I will post a pic of fish when it illustrates a point in a thread, but I certainly wouldn't start a thread to say, "Wow, look what we caught today."

    Great looking fish. You always seem to catch some big kings. I'd love to catch some like that around Homer. Keep on posting....

    I wouldn't say that this forum is for people to only ask questions. It's for people with a like interest in salt water fishing to get together, talk and share info or stories as well. I find Jeffs posts no different than someone who posts about how the fishing was over the weekend. He just skips all the boring details and goes right to the fish porn!

    Right on...... Keep posting pictures. I see everyone posting pictures and a short story here all the time. Funny how when one guide (self proclaimed sportsfisherman) doesn't like a little competition......

    Haven't seen any red kings this spring either- everything has been white. Funny thing, last year most of our early fish were red. Go figger.

    And keep on posting. Let the drivel drain on the floor where it belongs.

    Nice fish appreciate the cool pics.
    Keep em coming Jeff.
    At least you are not continuously pimping Kodiak in your threads like some of the Homer guides continuously do about Homer.

    You know, I know I, and probably a lot of people, are absolutely sick and tired of the mindless---and that especially applies to you---snide remarks about me and my love for Homer. I'm not "pimping" Homer as you so eloquently put it. I love living here, I love the fishing here and I am not afraid to talk about it. If you don't like that just keep your mouth shut about it and let those that appreciate it take it for what it's worth. Please!

    I'm glad to hear everyone feels the way they do. I guess no one is going to howl when I post pictures of the fish I catch every day in this forum. Thanks for the clarification.

    First off you'll never get any howling from me for posting fish pictures. It's the whole reason we go isn't it, to catch fish and have fun! I wouldn't compare what Jeff Does with just posting what anyone catches everyday. The fish he posts are usually bigger than what most of us will catch all year....

    On a side note he is a forum sponser so if anyone feels he's pimping his buisness, he does pay for that right.

    Interesting topic. I thought it was just me. Of the four kings caught this spring, two of them have been white for me as well. I had read in the past that 1 in 20 were white kings. Is the fact that they are white genetics or the food they eat?

    I can remember catching some trout that where white as well, and was told that it had to do with what they ate. I would think the same with most fish. I'm sure they don't all eat the same thing...???

    That is a nice bait station!, our kings are usually 50/50, but this guys was all white. nice fish! White usually smoke better for me(firmer)

    Some feeders are white, some red. White kings have a genetic mutation that makes them unable to metabolize carotene to red pigment. That's all.
    Most white kings occur from the Taku south, with the majority of white kings caught in AK from the Fraser river drainage. If ocean survival is good for kings from BC (most of them are hatchery fish) then we see more white kings. The ratio changes from year to year based on at-sea cohort survival.
    this should be a sticky.
