  7. I lost my personal best king salmon this morning. This what my buddy got...Devastated, I faught it for a long time. It nearly spolled me when I saw it, and recovered ...more it all the way back. When I reached for my net my foot got a little stuck and I paused letting the rod tip down for two seconds...boom pulled the hook. Why I didnโ€™t just beach it is the reason I wonโ€™t be able to sleep for the next week ! Ahhhhhh what a fish to lose. Sorry I had to vent Iโ€™m crushed thought I had won the battle

      thanks Bryan I appreciate that, a pre spawn salmon in the river would have been such a special catch. you should have seen the color pattern on it. I just wish I ...more could stop reliving it in my head lol still not there yet. I donโ€™t want to guess weight but he was a very good size. I guess Iโ€™ll have to settle for a dinosaur looking one in October : / god willing !

Highlight Reel


I live in Michigan on the edge of metro Detroit. I grew up on a bass lake called Lakeville lake. I used to ice fish a lot, but nowadays I go ...more up north river fishing and twice a year pier and surf fishing in the Sarasota area of Florida. Mangrove fishing when I have extra money which is never.

Fishing Favorites

  • Species steelhead
  • Waterway river fishing
  • Lure 1/8 ounce little cleos, or custom spinner baits
