    I have to give you some serious credit for the attempt. Undoubtedly the weather and fishing is better in K-bay in the winter.

    Nice pictures! Reminds me of some great winter days out on the Sound when I took my boys out skiing and deer hunting. Nothing like it! You'll get those kings figured out soon enough, it's not all about the catching after all!

    Winter in Whittier

    I have had a dry early winter for King Salmon in PWS. It been beautiful, snowy, stormy, and cold. I have made contact with a few tanner crab but no king salmon. Going to keep putting time in and try to learn this winter fishery.
