As the topic suggests, why are the fall beasts bigger than the springers? Do they spend more time in the ocean? Are ocean conditions better when the fall chinook are out there? Have the fall kings adapted to be more muscular to fight the faster water flows? What's going on here? Rarely do you ever hear of a springer that is bigger than 30 pounds, yet that is about average for the fall fish, even upwards of 50-60 pounds not uncommon.
