Catch and Release Staging Kings

Recommended Posts

What is your process for catching/releasing staging kings? Reason I ask is because most times once the king reaches the boat it is almost dead. I'm talking about the mature kings specifically.

They are half dead when you hook them or at least the process has started. It is a major reason I stop fishing them after they start to blacken up...I figure let them spawn in peace but I know that isn't a very popular view for many folks especially the people looking for egg sack material..

Secret is to land them  fast . 

 

I release a lot of mid September  lake and steam kings that swim away strong.
