    Caught on the Skeena River, using a spey rod. That's all I know, I have no clue what kind of lure, line etc was used.

    WOW, I got one 65 lb on the Nestucca years ago, but that thing dwarfs it.

    Back in the mid 90's I caught a 49lb king on the Humptulips, in high fast water and it took me damn near an hour to get it on the bank. That was using my med/heavy Lamiglas baitcaster, and 25lb maxima ultragreen. The next morning my girlfriend covered my back, shoulders and arms with Icy Hot, and it took me three days to recover.

    I could imagine it what kind of fight this one put up on a spey rod. :worship:

    If the fish wouldn't fit, I highly doubt a grown man would

    They are landing epic numbers of salmon right now.


    Buddy of mine has been landing two keepers every morning before 8am for the last week and a half.

    Wish we were catching those numbers here. So far the season around here has been a dud.
