We had a mid afternoon charter today and the fishing was tough. The wind was blowing hard from the southwest and the waves were solid threes with an occasional bigger one thrown in. We started in the middle of the 01′s in 160 fow just like we have the last few trips and worked in nnw. It took quite a while before we had our first bite – a 10″ Mountain Dew Spin Doctor/Cold Steel Big Water Meat Rig out 320 on a high wire. The fish made a good run and got away. A 10″ Green Atomic Spin Doctor/Green Death Meat Rig out 190 on a low wire went and we boated our first fish, a nice 13 pound King. We trolled out to 285 fow in the 06′s before we turned back south. We hit a fish in the middle of the turn on a 10″ Nuclear Green Spin Doctor/UV On Ice Meat Rig on a 300 copper. We boated that one and had a no show on our 11″ White Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly 160′ down on the chute rigger. A 10″ Dark Green Slick Spin Doctor/Green Death Big Water Meat Rig 95 down on an out down took the King pictured above. We made it back to 03:00 and took a small King on a regular Fuzzy Bear Frozen Veggie on a 400 copper. Our crew held up well in the rough sea’s. We pulled lines at 6:30 p.m.
