Steve picked me up at 2:40 am this morning... I threw my gear in his truck and we met Mike & Stacy at the PnR at 3:00 am. Loaded gear in the Parker, then off to Westport.

We had the Parker in the water just as it was beginning to get light. We made a short run north, found plenty of bait in about 70' of water, and deployed the gear.... well, Stacy deployed his gear. Before any of the rest of us could wet a line, Stacy was hooked up.

We had pretty steady action and had 8 hatchery Kings in the box by around 11:00 am. Still plenty of day left, so we looked around for Lingcod a bit. We hooked three but only got one keeper Lingcod in the boat.

Weather was great, ocean was flat, on the boat with good friends and the fish were biting!

Westport Kings 6-20

    Nice going. That almost looks like fun. You guys should consider become producers. Might be able to get some gigs filming amateur porn...with each other

    This is a scary comment..

    I told Trent all about "the Shocker" then For the rest of the day he was bending over, showing the Plummers crack on the deck... It was sort of scary..

    It was an epic day, some really nice looking fish, of course the biggest had to be left to be caught another day. Interesting catching kings in so close to shore, I think that has to be a first for all the years I've been fishing Westport.

    Nice day, water and weather were PERFECT!! The only downside was the smell of burning skin after a few long fights with Stacy having to palm that knuckle buster! For some reason, we all wanted corn dogs afterward.
