Well I finally got the new boat rigged up and went out for the maiden voyage looking for kings. We are supposed to have a terminal fishery starting this year and the fish should be arriving any day. Well we left the dock at 6 and traveled 19 miles to a good drag north of town. I fished a whole herring on a nose clip and my buddy fished a King Katcher fly made locally. When we arrived there was bait and fish all over the sonar so we set up and started. We ended up hooking 12 fish, landed 3 is all in 3 hours of trolling. I don't know what we were doing wrong or if they were short striking or what. Regardless we got a 28#, 24# and a smaller one. We lost a lunker that took drag for 20 seconds straight before it ran at the boat and popped off. Nice day.
Side note, my second chin was in full effect in the photo. Time to switch to lite beer.
