Went 5 for 5 on Friday on a coastal river. The first 4 were all natives that I released and then got lucky and nailed the biggest Winter Steelhead hen I have ever caught. I measured her at home and she was 37 inches long!! Caught her on a first bite jig. I didn't get the weight but I would say she was around 15 or 16 pounds. Here egg skeins were huge! Those are curing as we speak. What impressed me the most about this fish was her head shakes. She just would not give up. I am just happy my leader held up. I love seeing new pics up on this website so here is my contribution.
