    Those are some NICE fish - like [almost] all of the ones you post! You may have posted an answer to my question at some point in the past, but are there any ideas about what river system these Kodiak-caught fatties are coming from? Has F&G ever taken scale samples to determine what their spawning area may be? Its been years since I've seen Kings approaching this size over here in SE.

    Not able to answer for the Kodiak Island area, however the lodge owner where I stay says the big Kings that come by POW Island are the Skeena river system fish and he mentions BC fish generally as the big boys being caught during the peak summer season.

    just a possibility


    And YEAh! nice Kings!

    About 90% of our fish here in Kodiak have PNW/BC origins. last spring summer, it was a 50% WA, 40% BC and 10% OR from the samples that were taken. We stock Karluk stain fish here on the road system, but they make up an extremely small percentage of our saltwater fishery unless you are in those bays when they return. The nice thing is that those big BC fish, they live here in Kodiak, this is there kitchen, so we don't have to wait until the migrate to get them.

    Thanks for the answers. I suspected they may be BC fish. Thanks for sharing.
