    Default Those are beautiful fish!

    Not quite the pig that 67 pounder was, but those Kodiak kings sure are deep bodied, nice chromers!

    I'd call that late, not early
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    BEAUTIFUL chrome fish indeed.... but for the record, they're clearly NOT Kodiak kings.

    Default trolling in low light

    A commercial troller told me he smacked the kings one night during a full moon, but that was it, he tried several more times and he didnt catcha thing.

    We left the harbor at 4am and traveled about 15 minutes and as soon as our gear hit the water it was AWESOME!

    I never tried to troll at night, but love early morning and just before dark or whenever they bite!

    Another nice Kodiak king!!

    I'm going to have to try the full moon thing. When I fished in AZ in my youth, we'd night fish all the time.

    Default Where...

    ...do you suppose those hawgs are heading to?? I sure don't know of any Kodiak runs with fish like that in them...


    Those fish sure look like Kenai kings to me....

    Be interesting to find out the genetics of those beasts!

    Nice fish!

    These pictures are why I would take kodiak over homer for winter kings....spring kings, summer kings, fall kings...you name it. Awesome fish!

    Who knows, maybe they're Yukon or Klutina fish ;-)

    If they are caught in Kodiak, they are kodiak kings.

    I read something recently that said that they were Kenai fish. I don't recall where I read it...could have been here. Good looking fish!

    Somehow.... someone.... somewhere is getting low-holed. The marine waters off Kodiak harbor kings originating from all over the Pacific. The vast majority are NOT from Kodiak streams.









    Doesn't that bother you just a teensy weensy bit?

    I know half the states population is pretty upset that all the Cook Inlet kings got low-holed somehow... by someone.... somewhere.

    Perhaps Iím suffering from jealousy
