    Thumbs up Must be getting better

    Sounds like the run is on the uptick...

    A co-worker was down there for the long weekend from May 20-26 and said it was totally dead. He claims there were few people fishing and no action that he could see.

    He went out on the boat for halibut instead!

    Anything caught by their mouth?
    If you board the wrong train, it is no use running along the corridor in the other direction.

    Default Nothing for Fairbankians

    Fished the Lagoon this past weekend on a trip from Fairbanks. Wife had a few bites but we only saw one fish brought in during high afternoon tides on Saturday, nothing on Sunday.

    Default Oh Yeah, Kings 7:40pm Friday

    Not red hot but steady, watched several caught in the last hour. Actually, I say it was pretty good fishing. Stop at the Sportsman Supply (the little store right at the corner by the ramp) for update ---- they let me use their connection to send this favorable piece of news. Now, fifteen knots, high clouds, partly sunny....according to our marine weather station, tomorrow, Saturday, small craft warning into the day/afternoon/evening 25 knots six foot seas Kachemak Bay, improving Sunday. See you here.

    Anybody got a picture or description of a rigging that has worked to catch kings in the lagoon. Not the one with the bobber on the end and the hook a few feet down so that you snag the fish. I want to know something to legitimately catch them.

    I don't know about there, but back in Ontario we would use an egg sinker, barrel swivel, skein and a corky or floating Roe Bag.
    Just a regular old bait rig.

    Lightbulb Innovative Technique

    Never tried it, nor have I seen anyone applying this method, but I recall reading a bit of advice stating that a deadly technique for kings in the lagoon is to crawl a plastic squid along the bottom. Normally these lures are trolled -- often times with a herring bait. Maybe some other members can validate the use and effectiveness.

    As for more common methods, Vibrax spinners, roe and herring all produce strikes in the lagoon.

    the bobber snagging method is no longer legal.
    the new reg specifies that the hook must be at the end of the line.
