Ya baby first King of the year and a nice one too :D . Fished from 8pm-2am and went 1 for 2. First bite was on a glow green wobler which lasted only a few seconds before the hooked pop off :twisted: . Casted for a couple mores with no results. Around midnight switch to a Ping-T glow and on the third cast WAM nailed a 16.2# hen which put one hell of a fight. Man was the reel SCREAMING.:shock:

That good news I have been wanting to catch one of those babies it's something I have not yet done.

What rod and reel do you need to catch salomon from shore?
I set up for night fishing is 8'6" Med with 15# power pro. Daylight time I switch lines from braid to flour 10-12# p-Line.

The moon was full and the WEST WINDS was hounding. Pay attention to the wind direction very important. These fish are staging to spawn and are moving in and out depedning on the wind direction which controls the water temp that the Kings perfer 47-54 degrees. We have been getting W winds now for a couple days and wouldnt doubt more are close to shore. I will be out there again tomorrow night especailly if the winds are still coming from the West.
