Homer Spit Kings
Posted by Treetop-flyer12 on May 20 2005
The best method I have found to catch fish and avoid the crowds is to walk down the creek that flows from the "fishin' hole" and throw #4 or #5 Vibrax at the main water line. As the tide marches up to the hole you will have to back walk. Be careful not to get stuck on a high bar and let the water build behind you. I found that hip waders work just fine, just be aware of the water around you. The fish are schooling there waiting for the opportunity to swim into the hole. You are more likely to catch smaller kings, but the bigger ones are there. Most folks will not walk out there to the water line, and wait for them to get into the hole before fishing. Blue chrome vibrax has been my best catcher in #4. I have seen guys successful there 'mooching' herring as well or drifting egg sacks.

As for fishing in the hole, good luck, avoid peak camper hours of 9-5. If you throw hardware in the fishin'hole you are more likely to snag one in the back then catch one in the mouth. I would throw the hardware when the water is high enough to flow into the hole, as the fish that were trapped become active and there are the fresh ones that just swam in. When the water has gone below the hole, it becomes kind of stagnent and fish very lathargic.

Hope this helps,  TTF-12
