Had Just Fishin' Rich out for a few hours this morning. Screen was very good in 120-130' this morning from 60-100' down. Temp was across a broad range, I had 59 at 70' and 50 at 100', the most active fish were in the 50-75' zone and were hitting the sliders and mainlines, wire divers at 165 and 180' on a #2 also took some bites. Action never got really fast, just a pick all morning. Biggest King was about 18lbs, others were 4-6 lbs. Did not mark much of anything in the cold water, though I sacrificed rigs down there from time to time, they didn't go, the screen was high and so were the bites.

Nice job - from the reports, sounds like good fishing out your way. I'd take 9 hits over 4 hours. I was almost happy with the 2 hits I got in 5 hours out Mexico way. Ofcourse, I'd take that 12 lb. steele over a couple juvie kings :)
