Was not planning on fishing Saturday, had a family commitment beginning at 10:00 AM. However, woke up at 2:30 AM in a cold sweat, took that as a sign that perhaps the 30 pound king awaited me. So hooked up the boat and headed east for a quick trip. Departed the Manty pierheads at 4:30, headed due east, set up in 180 and trolled east with the chop. Out to 240, then back to 200, then back out again working about the same line. Had to pull lines by 7:30, had three decent kings in the box (released two smaller ones). Blue kool-aid down 90 to 100 took all of them.
Sunday rousted the youngest boy from bed around 5:00 AM, took the hour drive east and was departing the pierheads around 6:30. Anticipating south wind picking up, took a 115 heading out to 250 and started trolling north. We fished until about 11:00 AM, worked from 230 to 250, ended up a little north of TR. Fat 10 pound coho on a 75 foot rigger green flasher/fly, 12 pound rainbow on 300 copper blue flounder pounder, two 9 pound class kings on the deep rigger blue kool-aid, a jumbo lake trout on 250 copper flasher / fly, and three shaker king releases. Nice morning on the water, good to have some action with the boy.
The west winds didn't really do anything with the water; piss warm down to about 80 feet.
Still hoping for 'da 'tirty pound king before she's done!
