With all the rivers flooding and the saltwater coho season pretty much a dud for me, I thought I'd take KK's advice and try and hit feeder Kings in Homer from my kayak. Initially it looked bad. Water was dirty, and there was a ton of debris in the water. Couldn't get the downrigger deployed without catching grass, kelp, or jelly fish.
Ran into a powerboat anchored up off the spit and I was surprised to hear they had a nice halibut with one going 40 pounds according to the angler. I saw them land another halibut and a giant wrymouth, ugly thing. They were in less than 100ft of water so the halibut are still around.
Well I managed a king!!! Too bad it was maybe 3 pounds. Yes...three pounds. But it's a feeder king so I'm sure it will be tasty!! A "one meal" fish. Caught it on green label herring behind a flasher 30ft down in 60ft of water. At least I know my gear is working. Next time I'll get it's big brother!!
Here are the pics. For you novice photo takers here's some advice. Take the fat guy out of the picture and fill your frame with the fish and your fish looks MUCH bigger! Haha.
