    One of the hardest fish fight I've had. That fish was pulling line out pretty much the whole time. I had to chase it so it wouldn't spool me or go into rocks and cut the line. I think this ran harder than a gator blue for sure.

    What river were you fishing? I've been up there twice now salmon fishing, I might have to make it a yearly thing. I've caught enormous brown and rainbow trout, and some really nice king salmon out of the Oswego River. I also caught my first Coho this past August in Lake Ontario. It's such a cool fishery, catching salmon within a day's drive from MD.

    I might make it a yearly thing too. I fished the Oswego River. I never knew that these fish fight really hard.

    Wow, talk about needing a larger net! Those are some big fish.

    I smell a meet and greet... But seriously, we could do a group weekend up there next year. I've got a lot of contacts, fishing-wise, so we could do 1 day on a charter boat and another 2-3 days just out on the kayaks fishing for pike, salmon, SMB, etc.
