Homer Kings. Nov 2, 2014

Made the drive.  That was no fun.  Snow and ice in the pass and from Ninilchik to Homer.  On the way back I ran into a blizzard from the Seward Junction all the way to the Whittier junction.  Crazy.  Hands hurt from holding on to the steering wheel so tight!  lol.

What a difference a week makes.  Only one undersized king and three pollock.  That has to be some kind of record.  Went two for two on real sized kings...only because my first fish was suicidal.  Missed it twice.  I have no idea why that leader was so long.  Also, I know you can't net across your body like I did...or at least I can't.

The other crazy thing was I fished herring for over half of the time and still, all three of my kings came on a silver horde coho killer spoon behind a classic dodger.  The other piece of gear that struck out was the konezone flasher in chartreuse.  I cannot catch anything with one it seems like.  I know others have great success with them.  Hmmm...

So here's the video.  Didn't get my second keeper on video due to operator error. Argh!
