    Default Whittier Kings

    Got the first Chinook after our repower this winter. Feels like a good omen.

    What were you towing? I spent a few hours in the last couple weeks towing some brads baits and a cut plug behind a couple wiggle swarms - went down 60-80' on the riggers. Fished some out by esther and down by paddy bay. I smell like SKUNK with cod mixed in.

    ADF&G supplies them and public works and locals maintain the net pens and feed them, same as with the PWSAC supplied coho. We've been doing kings for six or seven years now. If you look around the sheetpile at low tide in July you will see the ones that make it back. They are out there.

    Thx,

    Ps-Deatails on catching them are appreciated too, ie....depths, speed, baits, anything that might help a new troller succeed.

    Just troll every where you go.. You are bound to hook up eventually. I saw a guy get a nice one off Blackstone point last year.

    every year when i first started to gillnet dogs over at ester(mid may) we caught a few kings, anywhere from right in front of the hatchery to all the way up to granite bay and also over in ester pass. I think they are just scattered everywhere. Gillnets were aprox 24ft deep so i'd guess quite a few slipped under the gear and mesh size wasn't right to catch them.

    Sheetpile break water.
    It is the corrugated looking walls on the outside of the breakwater, pounded in and they lock on the edges.

    Is their any chance of success while jigging for kings. I haven't invested in a down-rigger yet, but have had luck jigging last year for silvers. Is anybody catching kings in Whittier yet?

    Just go pick up some dipsy divers and troll with them. I'm hearing that the south end of Monty is getting hot with kings now.

    So I wrote out a long and thoughtful reply and I hit the wrong button. That's what I get for typing at 1230. Any who... I was hoping for a little help in fishing PWS. I have not been very successful out there. I primarily fish Seward with my buddies and do well with all it has to offer but for some reason I cannot catch a salmon in PWS. If there is any advice anyone wants to share that would be much appreciated. I try to get my daughters out in the sound but I keep coming up empty handed. No more bananas on the boat and its not helping much. I don't like pushing to Montegue with the family so any advice is greatly appreciated
