    [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Jun-08-01 AT 01:53 PM (PST)[/font][p]Kings are showing in really good numbers in Puget Sound's Marine Area 11 since the season opener on 6/1/01. Reports say there were over 80, mostly in the 8-12# range, taken that day alone; several moochers are reporting catches in the 15-18# range. Clay Banks looks like the Safeco Field parking lot during a Mariner's home game with all the boats that have been out there every day -easily 60 at any given time. 12 trailers parked at the Gig Harbor boat launch yesterday tells me the season is definitely underway. I weighed the one I caught yesterday at nearly 11#. Fell for a white & olive Krystal Flash Clouser that I was casting just off Point Dalco with a 8-wt, LC-13 shooting head setup - might have been the villiage idiot, but a King on a fly none-the-less. YES! :7
