Set up north of burns ditch around 8am at 53 fow and pointed the bow east. Marked some baitfish and circled near the 4, lost a coho, threw back a coho and kept a nice coho. Decided to keep heading east and keep looking for kings. Got to north of the green can and took a big rip, it was ominous, like a monster from the deep. Buried the board several times even after putting the kicker in idle. After a serious throw down I was able to get it in the net and on a scale. 
31lb king!
imagine my embarrassment when I noticed the decimal and saw the unit of measurement, turned out to be a few ounces shy of 20. I'll take it though, its a dandy.
trolled all the way to the pavilion with another 6lb king in the box. 
Ran all kinds of spoons early but eventually settled on a blue warrior spoon on a 100 copper that took the smaller king and meat rig on the 150 copper that took the bigger king, rigger down 40 ft took nothing and slider with a mixed veggie got all the coho.

That’s a beautiful fish. I’m jealous! Seriously though, that is a healthy king salmon. I’m glad you got a chance to get into them. I only had Sunday to go fishing but it was a bad day to go out due to conditions. Too windy for me. Hopefully there are more around next week to be had. 

Congrats. Nice fish!

CONGRATS!! Fish of a lifetime Alvin. You have set a high bar to hurdle for the rest of us. Re-read the story. You got me. Still nice fish. We can dream about thirty pounders. LOL.
