most of us fisherman are all optimists! When faced with slow fishing we always look forward to the "next tide" or something like that, but always with some optimism for the next time. I dont remember ever going out and NOT catching a king on several charters, I mean a bad week yes, several bad weeks? I remember one week where 2 guys landed one king each, pretty bad. Then this year several groups landing only a king a day for the whole boat! Now that is bad and that is how it is, pretty slow trolling for kings, we have plenty of halibut and cod and rockfish, but the kings are not biting. I been using my aquavu camera and can see them and they just dont come and eat the baits! Yesterday I tried every type of gear on the boat and finally hooked 2 kings, one ate a grand slam bucktail at 24ft and another ate a fresh plugged herring at 13ft. Monday we will be back out for the family fishing(next charter is on July 2nd) They should be biting then!
