57 pounds, Salmon River, 1986. On a number three red and white Mepps. Hooked in roof of mouth, that hook broke off during fight, second hook hung in corner of mouth. 17 pound Prime line. Gloomis rod, Ambassadeur 5000. 7:31 in the morning. Foggy. 35 minutes to land it. I was wearing a red and white buffalo plaid wool shirt and my right sock had a hole in it. Other than that, I don't remember much. :grin:

75 lbs chrome nasty buck on the lower kenia. Caught him on a plug I found at the Eagle rock put in. Lure had major fish teeth marks on it and some poor sucker lost it evidently. Two more fish over 50 lbs on it before i lost it.
