Well nobody wanted to fish today so went solo. Set up in 120 FOW and sent the cowbells down caught 4 lakers in about 10 minutes. Gambler called me on the radio and said he was into some fish off shore so I pulled up and headed out to 200'. Had a good king crack me off and then boated a 5 lb king. Then a short while latter 41' rigger fires and I grab the rod and reel as fast as I can but before the slack is taken up a huge over 12lb steelhead missiles 10' out of the water right behind the boat,he was a chunck !

Picked up another 5lb king and a couple skippys then a release off the cheater on the 63' rigger. Reel up the slack and the drag starts to rip out. A nice mid teen king. It's very challenging,fighting a fish,steering the boat and netting a fish(auto pilot got delivered yesterday thank God!)

Boated another Laker and small king and called it good. Best action was 170'-200' fow. NBK was the hot spoon and my Bobby Fuller one of a kind was what got cracked off.

Gambler did very well also I'll let him fill in the details.

We fished the same are as Dan and did some nice kings, and a couple steelhead. I had a scare when I put the rigger down 80' and was rigging the free slider. I felt the rigger release and had to scramble to get the rod in my hand before it got yanked overboard. We ended up dumping that fish after a 480' run. We took fish 40-80 down. After the kings slowed, we tucked inside and did some good lakers up to 18.02. All were released to fight another day.

Nice job Dan and Brian! Must be a good thermocline set up there Tuesday. Been skinny fishing the top 25 feet for weeks at the Oak.

There is a big break there. The thermalcline jumps from 60 down to 35 down in a short span. Tons of bait from 40-150 down.
