    Default Wow! 24ft

    Both these fatties ate the bait trolled at 24ft! the bigger one which was white ate a blue herring and the red one ate a green herring, it was cold but I didnt mess up the fillets!

    Nice fish for sure.

    And yeah, personally I prefer to cut my fillets and leave the belly section as one piece for smoking. To me it makes a better presentation. But that's just a personal preference.

    And, yeah, hot water deck sink would be a VERY nice luxury!

    I'm just curious. What percentage of kings down there that you catch are white? A friend of mine used to live in Kodiak and is an avid fisherman and he told me once that about half (if not more) of the kings he'd catch while trolling were white. I don't have a running count, but I think about 20% (maybe?) of the kings I've caught this year have been white.

    I'm also curious why you have an exclamation point after "24 ft.". Is it unusual to catch kings at 24 ft. down that way? There are places here in K-Bay that I fish at times where we fish in 24 ft. of water.

    50/50 white/red, we started trolling with dipsy divers and lower till the flasher disappeared and once we got down riggers we found out that it was about 24ft so we trolled with success! then we started to venture into 35 and even 60ft. so 24ft is like old school.
