Absolutely epic day. although I was completely illprepared for the sheer power of these fish, I managed to land 2, have three more booted by an inexperienced net man and get completely whooped by countless others. I learned that my steelhead rod was not enough to turn these fish...duh. but what a hoot. I hooked over 20 of these monsters today and my hands,arms and shoulders are still burning 5+ hrs later. 4 of us hit the elk today and I let a friend use my salmon rod and i fished with my steelhead rod......these fish were breaking their 30lb leaders all day long... after the boat parade was done, we had a perfect travel lane to ourselves all day...epic is all I can say. I banked 2 of our 4 landed fish on 12 lb maxima.....

I always love to hear fisherman say they can land any fish on 17 lb line.People always give me the EYE when I tell them we had 5+ per rod.These days can never be recorded in a photo only in memeory, to pass on to our children about how it used to be.Nothing better the next morning waking and the arms will not work because of fighting fish .
