I caught a big reddish male (big head) Kenai R. king salmon while halibut fishing. About 2 miles south of Deep Creek in 26' of water.
What blast that was on a halibut rod with a 2 lb sinker flopping around. With 150 lb. line it was no match for the fish. I usually fish kings with 25 or 30 lb. line and a medium rod.
Last year we caught a king on the same date, about 100 yds away in the same depth. Coincidence???
