I have been very lucky keeping on the kings...... till today. Fished for 3 hours and nothing, Riggers, Divers, Wire, Spoons, FF, did not try meat.

No marks and fished 100 to 200 fow, covered from 40' - 80'. Weather may have shut down the bite, Friday should be a better day.

Not much help but may save you some time.

Good Fishing!

Alittle late but the offshore bite has really been picking up and will only get better.
As for kings I’ve been doing really good 150-300.
Typically if I’m not sure where to start for kings I’ll go to 300 and work in. Temp is everything do getting that from other guys in the area is key. I’ve had a lot of awesome days on blank screens and simply fishing a temp

I fish between 44-52 degrees and then zone in once something works. If you don’t have down temp and speed get it.
Other thing is try to get in a boat with a good guy or take a charter. The variables to being consistent are endless. Speed, temp, leader lengths, distance of the ball, copper backed or silver, and on and on. That’s what makes it fun though, trial and error
Also get a good laker game. There always biting and there’s usually kings above them.

Thanks for all the replies!very helpful information!i definitely need a temp reader but could only afford the fishhawk TD.cant wait to get back out there..probably not until Sunday.we got skunked out there saw bait and marks must have been doing something wrong I’m guessing to deep?the balls were at like 70 and 80ft on the counter stacked one close to the ball the other 10ft above that.speed was reading 2.6-2.8 I don’t have pro troll or a kicker..2 dipsys off the side one spindoctor with proam fly the other e-chip with pro am fly,to short of leader maybe?there like 4 and 6ft to the flasher..also I have big game  20lb test on every rod..is wire a must on dipsys?
