Last day for my group of five. I have to admit it’s been rather stressful getting five kings a day. We’ve been dashing out first thing in the morning and it’s really paid out for us. Yesterday we had our kings by 5:45 AM and today we had our kings by 6:45 AM. As they say the early bird gets the worm. Sounds like I’m hearing a lot of struggling on the radio.
Wrapped up kings fairly early. Finally had a day to get offshore. Halibut, king, yellow eye, and bass were on the agenda. Managed to get them all and be back to the dock by 1pm. I will add that these guys were awesome, like all my groups are. Big shout out to Dan K for showing me the glow jigs... they put a hurt on the ling and yellow eye. Day off tomorrow.
Had a few kings left on the table so my group and I did an morning trip as they didn’t fly out until tomorrow. Managed a 27 and 24lb king fishing little cookie jar spots out of the weather. Lost another good one too. My next group comes in tonight. Back out there tomorrow!
The killer whales showed up en mass. They killed a young humpback and ate it by shaft rock. The king salmon fled. Kept grinding and got first king at 2pm. Then doubled and ended with 3. Ready for the rain to stop. Back at it tomorrow. Halibut and black bass too.
