Hit the river after work with kgowens. First day of river fishing this season so I headed to my favorite hole on the Sky. Fishing was pretty slow. We were drifting eggs through a couple deep pockets. Had a few hits here and there but nothing was sticking so I switched to a spoon. Went up to a spot I knew was holding something. About half an hour in a massive king surfaced right next to me... I thought to myself, they're in here :) Back to eggs. Casted through a great drift and wham, but it didn't stick. I knew he wanted more, so more eggs to the hook, casted again in the same seam, and wham, it stuck. About 10 minutes on my light tackle and into a medium size net it went, and then it broke through the mesh, but we had it.
Great start to a season with this likely 30 pound category king. Great fishin with you yesterday Kris. Tried to edit the photo down enough to hide the location. I know there a couple local guys very keen on keeping this spot quiet.
