Got into Pulaski Sat night bout 9 PM
-Heavy rain ,thunder and lightning stopped around Altmar while coming in.
Slept in a bit on Sunday and went lower mid-LOTS of people and -for the time of year, decent fish in the AM.
Slowed as the day went on and really not much -if any- evening push.
Today ( mon) accidentally slept in again and didnt hit the river till about 7:30.
Far and away fewer people. Weekenders gone.
Apparently a decent night run and many AM fish on stringers already.
Not huge numbers this mid morning but slow and steady.
Have a favored downriver rock and small run generally to myself as its easily overlooked by the masses. As usual the kings would stop there where you can FISH for them.
Found them to be very fresh- feisty and unusually willing.
All mature Kings but not huge like some reports-just nice very fresh adult fish, many appearing in the mid 20s.
Reports of the fish being very strong are correct- mouth hooked fish are generally a bit controllable imho- not these-
strong runs into the backing VERY quickly were the norm.
Nursing some line burned fingers LOL
It was slow in the late AM and bugged for Ct around noon.
GREAT early trip.
Best part-- ran into Andy for a while in town.
