Uncle jack, my girlfriend and i fished area 9 yesterday and stuck 4. We launched from kingston, still dark and ran to pilot for our first tack. After not picking anything up we changed direction. The fethastyx popped free of the rigger and we had our first king of the morning. I put a hook in it and handed the rod off to my girlfriend. It's a worry free ordeal with the rod in her hand. She learned well! The fish was in the net in a hurry and 12lbs of tasty chrome in the box. Put the rods back in the water, circled around to the X and rod goes off in the exact same spot! i didn't even get to the rod before it was off and onto one of the other rods. after a quick fight and perfect net job by yours truely we had another fish in the box. this one was a little smaller but still a respectable nook. We went a little while with nothing else and deceded to run to skunk bay for the outgoing. Picked up one more king near the bend. We ended the day with a decent silver by the can. Fish were caught off pilot in 80 feet of water down 36, 45 with red glow mini flasher and cotton candy 3.5 prototype hardware. skunk bay fish were 56 down on rigger in 80 feet on kelp cutter with green spatter back hoochie. SHORT LEADER!
