  1. I don't go out without running cutbait. It's been responsible for our biggest 5 or 6 fish this year as well as some jumbo steelheads. Fish like you used to. It's not much different. [ Post made via iPod ]

  3. Nick, Sunday evening seemed to pick up a little. Only running 2 rods because if the wife's inexperience. We ran out to 240 and setup. I'm sure ya noticed the storm as soon as we headed out. Got north of the storm and headed out. At about 280 we took a shot on the 300 wire that ended up being a 9lb coho. Went to 400 dry and turned back. Hit a skipper on the 70 nbk and then a super nice Atlantic on the wire. At about 300 we did a real nice mid to upper 20s major on that 70 nbk. I saw him streaking on the screen with us so I moved the rigger up and down til he took. Gotta love lowrance hd sonar. Kel was amazed at how fast those majors take line and even more amazed when it hit the deck. Kept the silver and the king. All others released. Half Wired, Stu [ Post made via iPod ]

  12. I have to agree 100 percent. I was up last week. Middle of the week and the king bite was world class. First evening out we had an 18, 21, couple mid teeners (12-15lbs) then we hit a good major 26.4. We shoulda kept cutting cause we were in them heavy but we ran the good one in to weigh. A few days before that my good buddy was there in the same place. For 3 hours they could only run 1 rod cause the action was so fast. They actually decided to take a break and just sat in neutral for about 20 minutes just so they could regroup and catch their breaths. That says it all. The day after we weighed ours we hit 2 more in the lower 20s and a 19 pounder along with some fantastic looking steelies. It sorta reminds me of how it was 20some years ago when I was Viking charters protege. Tight lines, Half Wired [ Post made via iPod ]
