Took an hour and a half to catch our limits (there were 3 of us fishing off our boat). But we weren't ready to quit fishing. I kept trying to drift my rig into this hole where I could feel the fish stacked up. I felt a tug, set the hook and was certain that I had snagged a fish by the way it was so hard to reel. Every once in a while I thought I felt a head shake, but still certain I had that fish snagged because I couldn't get it to surface. Finally after working and working at it, up popped a big ol mouth with my jig down her throat! I could hardly believe my eyes! 30", 12# female oozing eggs! Took a few pictures and let her go! Make more dinners that way! :)
Not the biggest but it was our first time on a charter off Algoma, WI. It was my daughter's 16th birthday and this is what she picked (her boyfriend was 1st mate on this boat). 5 fish in 4 hours. 4 Salmon and 1 Steelhead trout. She caught the first one and the last one, it was a great day. Capt. was Mike Younk.
