Yeah, Doublespey, I actually got him, took close to an hour, but what a gorgeous fish--purple on the back, silver tail, and sea lice. 39"X24" Shaped like a football--in fact I still can't believe how big around it was. It was tougher than that big steelhead you saw the picture of, although it may be the rod that made it seem that way. All I can say is that it's better to be lucky than good. In any event, I don't recommend targeting kings with the old 7136--unless you're into S & M.
