    Default Who's fishing Kings off Deep Creek?

    well, the tractor is operating so the guides must be fishing. Any luck?

    Three of us at different times tried Whiskey Gulch off a kayak this weekend One king hooked, several small halibut landed. The other guys saw a few landed by powerboats. I saw very little as in zero activity of bait on sonar though I did see a pod of humpbacks tight off shore,

    I only managed a flounder and Irish lord. I was disappointed at the lack of action even from the lesser species like cod. Maybe they are late or I was just unlucky.

    Herring are running good along Clam Gulch right now ....... so, there's plenty of bait fish for kings.

    Great! May have to try further north. Did notice a guy on the road with a herring for sale sign. My sonar was working since I could see my gear but was amazed how empty the water looked.

    Gives me more hope! Great info.

    was wondering if you were out, went by two of you nuts and neither were you.
    there were only 2 of us launched out of Anchor on Sat, and 4 on Sunday, a heated cabin is MUCH better than bieng a crazy kayaker! (though watching them land in the 3-4 surf on Sunday did provide a little entertainment between wresteling matches)

    Lol. You ran into Matt and Andy the two guys I fished the winter King derby with. They had one good take down and they each landed a small halbut. I didn't show up until about 4pm Sunday. Our group is planning a get together May 18 & 19 at Whiskey Gulch. Just got another kayak, same as mine for the fiancee. So that gives me twice the available time on the water! hopefully she doesn't outfish me! But to insure she doesn't, I got her an outrigger, a sail kit, and a nice camera. That way I...oops, "we" can be out on the water more! WITH the added bonus of less of a chance of being outfished by the signficant other!! lol. It doesn't matter what I do, she will outfish me anyways!

    Lol. We will be out there every weekend weather allows in May! I should be easier to spot. Picked up a second Hobie Outback in that gaudy bright yellow color so I could keep a better eye on my partner.

    I'm tellin ya polebender, you gotta try it. It's all the great things about fishing mixed in with a little rodeo when you hook a decent one! 99% of the time you are overheating, not cold!

    One of these days, I should book with you when you have a more relaxed charter if there is such a thing. I want to try a few video things. You should let me know when you have an open seat or two. I still need to rig up some equipment though. See ya on the water!!

    Rudy, if i can find an opening you are welcome to come out, no charge, it would be fun for you to step out and wave at your gang, in your tee shirt, sipping baileys and coffee. you might have to wear an aloha shirt as the webasto in the cabin keeps it around 70!
    if i hadn't got rid of my dry suit i would think about trying it, does look like a lot of fun.
    My son is wanting to use the 9' inflatable with the 2 horse yammy to catch one, kind of like putting a blender on a cork!!

    Lol. I'm in!!!

    My primary reason I want to get out on a power boat is to try a few new camera shots. I'm also working on a downrigger camera mount with a little different aspect.

    So yah, if you have an opening, let me know. I'll swap you footage and such. Keep in mind it's just gopros and such. It's not going to be professional footage. But it's be fun!!!!

    I am. But there are dozens of examples already out there. I need to tweak a few to enable it to get some "better" footage. I think kings will be tough. But hoping to get cohos and halibut on tape.

    FYI......navigational hazard near Stariski Creek in the Cook Inlet is a drilling platform offshore approx. 3 miles; COSMO #1.
    The Lat/Lon co-ordinates are:
    N 59 53.21
    W 151 52.97

    No excuse for running into it now. Good fishing and let's hope the kings show up this season.

    going hard to not hit this monster! a 120' tug that is there almost every day, looks like a zodiak pulling up to it, when a helicopter lands on it, the helo loks like a mosquito!!
    kind of looks like a christmas tree at night when it is dark
    and yes it is my new front yard ornament! hope it does not stay there forever, but it does pose a few hours of beverage sipping
    " what the heck are they doing now" questions!

    I would expect to see them there until the ice comes back, I don't think they have even started drilling yet... And knowing what I know about the whole operation I would expect them to have lots of problems.
