Want to land a King Mid to Late May
Posted by FbksNovice on May 06 2005
This is a wonderful site. Thanks in advance for your responses and advice.

I noticed TradBow mentioned mooching for "feeder kings"

I only have one weekend to get my king in mid-May.
I would like to catch an ocean king before it starts it's run.
I want to fish for a biggun trying to fatten up before the long trek.

As I read through many of these threads, I thought I'd ask one's feelings on hatchery runs vs natural runs... (is there such a thing)

Reason I ask, is I heard valdez expects kings to be coming in in greater numbers this year. I had conflicting info on when they were released 1999 or 2001 from a hatchery? I want to get the largest possible King in my limited time frame. I don't mind driving but I want to base a kenai drive on strong recommendations. Is there any merit to pulling up short in anchorage?

I'd much appreciate a vision of how to make this all come together, and recommendations of experienced trolling "mooching" charter captains that I can ask for by name.

Not the focus of this thread but also, I think this might be the only King I'll get any opportunity at. I am thinking of mounting it. I respect this audience so I'll throw it out there to show my greeness...

Is a replica mount acceptable, so that I may enjoy eating it also? Is it possible to mount the original and get to eat my fish too?
Of the places you mentioned above, is there a reputatble taxidermist nearby that you'd also recommend?

Much Oblige,
