Fishing lit up in for all the AU boats on Monday with limits of kings quickly followed by limits of halibut. One of the king locations was protected, calm, shallow and particularly beautiful. The Wong party – Ed, Gary, and Brad Wong plus Jim Kraft had a spectucular day of catching and releasing kings using circle hooks and Berkley Gulp sandeels much of the time instead of herring. This set up minimizes the chances of gut or gill hooking a king. Over the course of the day and many hookups, we take the mainly the fish that are deeply hooked. Once that adds up to one king per angler, we’re done. The action continued early on Tuesday morning, but something pulled the plug and the kings did a disappearing act by 9 AM. The job today is to find out where they went. The ocean remains remarklably calm, as it has been through much of this season.
