The kings were hungry today! they were literally jumping in the boat! They hi† anything from 40-25ft. 8 kings landed with just as many that got away, one jumped after a bait that was being retrieved to clear the deck and hit the back of the boat!

Had the same experience a couple of weekends ago. We were going to go halibut fishing but the fog was too thick to make it so we decided to troll close to shore. Bang, bang, bang the kings were on! Grandkids had fun trying to land them. They lost a few and landed two but no big deal as I want them to experience the excitement of fishing and losing some is good for them to experience in this world of medals for participation. Thanks for posting.

Awesome fish. What month do your largest kings get caught down there?

Thx guys...wheels are turning for a shot at those awesome looking kings. Was thinking mid to late May. How's halibut fishing then?

Deeper, but good!

Woohoo!!! I think we may have a crew headed out that way in May. I'm thinking maybe after school is done around May 20th or so. I was almost hoping you would say "no halibut" because I think it's going to take every minute of fishing possible to land something over 50lbs when it comes to kings I would think. Trying to set the bar high, though I think just catching a single decent (25 lbs or better) fish would be a pretty good accomplishment. I suppose our odds depend a lot on how many kayaks make the trip.

What do ya think brownbear? You've seen the set ups. What do you think our chances are for kings if we fish five 12 hour days?

May, huh? ARGHHH...it is only September... :upset:

Most we catch in that time period are over 20, and in fact over 30, so I don't think the bar is too high at all. As for mixing with the hali's, that works too. The way we fish, the kings are almost exclusively on the incoming, which leaves all those outgoing hours to chase hali's.
