    Default Juneau Winter Kings 11/25/07

    Winter King fishing is going good so far in Juneau. Made our first run out so far....Ended up with 2 kings in about an hours worth of fishing. One weighed in @ 22lbs, the 2nd weighed in at about 15lbs.....Not a bad day for fishing from 9am-11am - Pictures to follow

    A lot of times the good spring king areas are pretty hot for winter kings as well.....Just remember to fish deep....caught these with the riggers set at 120' with bottom being @ 144'

    I was wondering what you guys were up to, hadn't seen any duck photos in a while. Great job on those Kings, that's very uncommon to catch them so quickly.

    Havent been duck hunting in a while....Pretty much burnt out on it for the rest of the season....Trying to turn my focus on getting a deer in the freezer....and finding time to do that.....However I'm taking a buddy and his son out this week probably....Not going to gun though....Just take pictures....and drive the boat of course

    Juneau winter King salmon are definately in the salt... we keep the Can Can in the water all year for just such opportunities. With no snow at sea-level the deer hunting has been more work than I'm willing to put out... might have to dig a few freezer-burned herring out and drag them for a while.

    Stay deep and the rod-hours are actually pretty low. Remember the statistics are based on ALL fishing done in the area, so the folks fishing shallow are adding hours to the numbers with minimal chance of a fishy return on their investment. With 2-4 rods out, I usually run 2-3 hours per fish in Oct/Nov/Dec and 3-5 hours per fish Jan/Feb/Mar.

    Deep in the middle of Fritz Cove is usually fairly productive - fish the line everyone runs from Picnic Cove to the channel marker, but do it farther from the beach where there's 180-300' of water.... I usually put out 150-200' of downrigger line, so we're likely fishing that 100-120' zone most of the time. That drag just outside George's Rock can be productive too.

    Now that the channel markers are out for the season, maybe I'll spend some time at DuPont.... I don't mind folks seeing where I fish, but I don't need everyone driving on Egan seeing the boat for 12 or more hours!

    Looks like it might be time for a Juneau-area O.D.D. charter... Is Powder_Monkey back in town? I know I'm "semi-available" most of the time. What's everyone else's schedule look like? If there's any common availability I'll post in Open Seat.

    OR... are y'all too competitive to fish from the same boat so we need to have a mini-derby?
