I have heard many times by reputable anglers that hugging the kelp or rock piles can be productive for kings. That said, the few times I have tried trolling or mooching along kelp I got in to large black rockfish schools that obviously kept me from effectively fishing. I could troll faster but I have heard big kings tend to like a slower presentation (assuming gear works effectively at that speed). Thanks in advance for any help. I want one of those 40+ kelp kings!
