Feeder king size
Posted by Bob Ball - Piscatorial Pursuits on May 09 2005
Often referred as "blackmouth", feeder kings are immature kings and may not give you the "size" that you desire.
If size is of utmost importance, then probably try offshore at Deep Creek to intercept early kings headed for the Kenai. A number of the fish in that fishery will be of Kasilof-origin and other streams further to the north ... these will be all be smaller fish in that timeframe and comprise most of the catch ... but if you want the chance to land a sizeable fish, that's probably going to be your best bet.
You can get the meat from a skin-mount if you wish. Often times the taxidermist will come to a cleaning facility and sking the fish right there for you. Frankly, if you're going to have a replica done ... there's only one fella that I would use, that would be Luke Filmer of Blackwater Trading at www.blackwatertrading.com. He's done a number of fish for our guests in both Washington & Alaska and does fine work.
