    I can't forget my last journey I love fishing and try to make my all picnic tour in fishing. Last time when I went in Pacific Ocean I was fishing hunting I got my heavy weight fish that was 25 ponds on a scale you know I was really happy that time..... Guys do you have any journey like this I have?

    Peter, I too love fishing. I'm not pulling your leg when I tell you this, I caught a #178 Hallibut, the largest Chinook Salmon I've taken was #67. the largest Steelhead was #27, the largest searun Cutthroat trout was #6 1/2. I've brought Sturgeon to the side of the boat in the 11' class that we were unable to weigh but was in the many hundreds. I've fished from Bristol bay to Costa Rica and I can tell you this, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    I have a wife that knows my sickness and doesn't mind me indulging my passion. I caught her over 35 years ago, once I cast my net around her, I knew she was a keeper;)

    It's amazing how 'Fishing' can be such a down right addicting sport. I've had the sickness since as far back as i can remember.

    an 11 foot sturgeon should be in the 900 lb range! there are sturgeon weight estimates by length for catch and release anglers that will tell you how much they weigh approx, just google it :thumbup:

    They say days spent on the water after piscatorial pursuits are not deducted from ones life span, therefore I should live a long, long time!

    If you ever want to hear a good yarn, ask a one armed fisherman how long the biggest fish he ever caught was:bluelaugh:

    I don't think I have ever hooked any fish that was a true monster. I did hook something off the south jetty at Newport that broke my rod ( Sea lion is my guess ). My best fishing memory though is fishing sea run Cuts on the Siletz with ultralight gear. even the smallest would take line like a salmon.

    Sea run cutthroat are one of my favorite all time fish to ply the waters for. They always give a good account of them self's, and as table fare their hard to beat.

    Congrats, a 35er can be hard to get with a line like that. We are blessed fishermen! Best day fishin? Yesterday, not a bite. My31er made me and the kid go get pizza. For heavy weights, go o/s sturgeon. A 10 footer Will make you not want to catch him, good times
