Silver tastes much better smoked. I kept for spawn. The meat on the dark ones is like rubber. IMO. Troll in 30 fow in front of harbor and stay in line with the green can and you will get them. Low light bite early am or after 5:30 pm. 2 and 3 color leadcore with s shallow diving crank that is 4 to 5 inches in length is the ticket. Anything un white or glow even better. 2.5 mph trolling. Downriggers are a pain in the butt with all the boat traffic.

Minnowdragger, I keep them and smoke them. Haven't had any issues or complaints. I have only smoked them, haven't baked, fried, or cooked them any other way. I've heard a bunch of people say that they are mushy after they go dark for the spawn, not sure if it's hear say being passed with no proof, or if they have tried eating them. Every person has their own tastes though, so I would just keep one and try cooking it a couple different ways (there is plenty of meat to work with on a big king) and see if dark kings are good for you. I personally love them, and they don't last long in my house after coming out of the smoker.

Well a few years ago I tried a dark king 15-17 pounds.  It was a harbor fish not from the streams.  The meat was not very orange/pink in color.  It taste like garbage and I wouldn’t eat another.  Heck I don’t think I would feed to my dogs.  However some people keep them.  More power to you if you do.  They die anyway when they are in to spawn so keep them all.
