Last weekend I was fishing Area 6 with a friend and big kings moved in feeding on massive herring bait balls. About 50 kings were working the shoreline on an incoming tide - bait was shooting out of the water like machine gun fire as the kings boiled around my boat. Bald eagles were diving down catching the bait that were chased to shore - most activity was in 2 - 10 feet of water. I had my sea-run 6wt. set up with intermediate line, but quickly tied on a herring pattern and casted into the frenzy- I was so excited my hands were shaking. Nothing happened. I followed the baitball, casting away until the tide changed and everything died down. I can't figure out what we did wrong. We tried a surface popper, multiple Herring patterns and clousers. Fished fast, slow, stripped it right away, other times let it sink - each time... nothing. I am not sure if we were doing something wrong or if it was just the sheer fact that millions of herring diminished the odds the fish would take our fly. The bottom looked like a a moving black cloud about a 100 yrds long - huge amount of bait. What do you think? The area is private so only one other fisherman was seen. He caught what he said was a 25lb fish with a spoon from his beach - you can't keep kings in that area, but I think he did. On a side note - I have been doing well for Sea-Runs. Attached is a recent photo of a beauty that made my day.
