    Default 20 degree trolling

    went to check a spot that produces some nice winter kings and found a rockfish and one red king, I lost 2 rigs to sharks! I'll rig for sharks and kings and see what happens tomorrow.

    Nice! Glad you've got a harbor you can get out of! We'll have to live vicariously through you for at least a few days.

    Just assuming salmon sharks, looks like shaved leaders! and very heavy fish. trolling a herring at 75 ft in 175ft of water, I got a hit and tightened the drag to what feels like 50lbs, I lean back and am pulling and holding on for dear life. It makes several slow runs with heavy drag( I learned not to let them run) as I was retrieving line the hook pulled out.

    Sounds like a Salmon Shark. Pretty interesting animals. I had never seen or heard about the study until a friend of mine just recently sent me a link to the site that covers the tagging of some of these sharks in the PWS area. Check it out on this site: http://www.topp.org/species/salmon_shark . It gives an indication about how much we have to learn about this species. (The Elephant Seal tagging infomation is pretty interesting, too.)
