Now that is a PIG!

Strange coincidence or something else, but I have noticed more large Chinook being caught in Southern Lake MI this year then anytime in the last 20 years. Plenty of mid 20's and several 30's which for this area is BIG.

That is an impressive fish. I love that you had to dig a hole under the scale to get him in there.

This year seems to have larger fish than in the past, at least here in northern California.
The biggest so far we have pulled was 38 lbs, most averaging 28 - 30 lbs with a few 20 lbers.
And they are fatty fish, huge amounts of oil in them! yummmm.

I think once the fresh water hits them they will start heading in. With regards to Silvers, I have seen them go right past my boat and everyone else’s heading to their river and never stopped to stage or feed.

I haven't seen that happen with the Pinks. This coming week should be good.:arr

Well it looks like the rain we had, has started to bring the Pinks in. Lot's being caught between Mukilteo and Browns Bay.

I was going to launch the Trophy into Lake Stevens to tweek the new Furuno radar setup and pull the wheels off the trailer to get a look at the brakes....... but maybe not.:getsmilie
