    How do you tell? It was a white male --> no eggs inside to see how mature the fish was

    Fishing SE Alaska two years ago my wife caught this 40#er. Had a slow day of fishing and we’re heading back in. Wife just picked some random point we never fish but pass all the time and said “Why don’t we stop here and fish for a bit.” Sure why not. She picked out her own hootchie and flasher and dropped it down to the depth she wanted. Next thing this pig was on the line. While playing it she said she thought it was foul hooked but I had gotten a couple glances at it and knew it was not foul hooked but just a big fish. I didn’t say anything to her but I was very relieved when it finally got in the net. Biggest fish salmon for her.

    That’s quite the haul! Just curious, what’s the one darker fish between the hali and the salmon?

    That fish’s head is bigger than hers!
    It looks like it was a perfect day of fishing. The ocean doesn’t get much calmer than that.

    Haha that’s right! I forgot about your second post because you weren’t in the pic. A true bragger has to have the arrogance to be in every picture.

    And yes, you are also the first and only shirtless guy in the thread too. Sun’s out Guns out!
