I've got a picture of a big brown someplace - either 16 1/2 or 15 1/2 pounds, can't remember. Off the Pickering Nuclear Station - Whitby, Ontario east of Toronto on Lake Ontario - in January or February back in the 80's probably.

Man, it was so easy to catch those things at night. Troll along a body bait under the lights.

No viable launch ramp - car toppers only portaged in across the beach. Fishin' in the tin can at temps of minus 15 or 20 C in the dark. Ice coating the boat and rod guides.

Lakers in the day time, fish the thermal plume, where the warm water - 10C or so - from the reactors met the cold Lake Ontario water. Killer lure was a dark green/silver AC Shiner.

Anyone here know what the AC stands for?? Free beer on the bridge for the correct answer.

Man, gotta find that photo...

Browns in Lake Ontario - dumbest ass trout ever. But native browns in the stream - smartest bastards you ever tried to catch. [never caught one, actually]

Nice permit felio, and nice fly. Looks like a merkin style crab pattern? What did you use to tie the body?

From the Yucatan?

Feelio - where did you get that permit? Had a bunch of good shots off Honduras last March but no takers.

Holy frig! Here it is - the IGFA all-tackle length record for pink salmon!

http://wrec.igfa.org/WRecordsList.aspx?lc=AllTackleLength&cn=Salmon,%20pink

Congrats to our own Bob Gaines!



This is a really significant record - all-length! Not some line class record on some obscure species. This is a highly sought-after fish and a huge accomplishment!
