Keith Robbins, owner of A Spot Tail Salmon Guide in Seattle (www.salmonguide.com), got a late start on Monday in central Puget Sound, but managed to rally his guests into some home-run salmon action.

Robbins clients were five baseball players from the Atlanta Braves who are in town for a two-game series against the Seattle Mariners.

Robbins said the group had a successful day on the water by catching two kings and losing another at the boat as well as some coho just south of Jefferson Head.

The biggest hatchery king weighed almost 20 pounds, and was caught by Braves second baseman Tommy La Stella.

The other players on the fishing trip were catcher Gerald Laird; and pitchers David Hale; Shae Simmons; and Anthony Varvaro.
