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!

Agree Ron. Seen some BEASTS come out of there as I am sure BG has as well. Still a fish I would be proud of!

My last few trips have all been focused Stripers. Nothing too big to report ~10 lbs being the biggest, but the bite is on for the spring Striper run in the Delta!

The all-tackle record for cutthroat is 41 pounds (39 inches long), caught at Pyramid Lake in 1925.

Any trout over 30 inches is a big one to me!

The really big ones usually find a way...to get away.
