Plenty of kings around. Not wide open but most spots have a few. Winston, the new pharmacist in town landed this nice 32 pound king last night while fishing with me. It's stomach was full of big squid. We also got two more kings, both nice sized. I know of kings in at least 5 spots on the outside, so things are looking promising and the fish appear to be on the beach this year.
Trolled commercial today during a local opening. Picked up some nice kings. I fish solo, so I apologize for the dark picture. Someone somewhere will purchase and eat this big white king I caught today trolling 120ft deep around some rockpiles. Probably will end up in a high end restaurant by the weekend. When not charter fishing, I commercial salmon troll out of my 40ft troller the Glory.
Getting ready for my 16th season out of Craig. I am fully booked from June 1st to Aug 30th and am grateful for that. Looking forward to seeing everyone and seeing those rods bent over with fish all day. As usual, I will be giving 100% effort to get you guys on fish. In a week or so I will begin scouting in earnest to ensure I know where everything is at before you all arrive. So far the reports sound favorable on the outside waters. I will provide updates on the blog as
